    Missing a ton of apps since I upgraded to 2.2 and would like to go back and wait for the the official release. I made back up on my sd card but dont know how to get back to 2.1 and all my apps. Or did I lose them all for good?

    Restore your backup and everything will be how it was when you made the backup.

    Power off. Power on while holding down the x key. This boots you into recovery.

    Select nandroid, restore. Choose your backup, then restore it.

    FYI, there is a "market fix" out there so that apps show up in the market following froyo install.

    I don't blame you for going back to 2.1 though. Froyo doesn't play nice in my Droid.

    There are a few guides out there. As others have said, use SPRecovery to get back your 2.1 and you'll have what you had before.

    For everyone...always make a recovery file before embarking on major changes...whether it be a new theme, rom, etc.

    You backed them up on your card with what app? If they are on your card you can get them back, but the recovery file will have everything as it was before too.

    You can, there are guides to tell you how to do it. Search around in the hacking area. I can't tell you off the top of my head.

    One of the easiest ways to do it is when you remove your ROM and you're just rooted go to DroidMod - Everything Droid doesn't, DroidMod does. and download dmupdater. It will actually remove your root and bring you back to 2.0.1.
