    If you're running sprecovery a lot of the ROMs you mentioned won't work as they require clockwork rocovery. Both recoveries use nandroid, but are not compatible.

    Are you wiping data and cache when trying to switch? And you should probably be using clean nandroid's not just update.zip's, if thats what youre doing.

    when flashing a new ROM it is good practice to always wipe data and cache twice before installing the new ROM.

    Do yourself a favor and buy Rom Manager. You will not have all these problems.
