    You can use Rom Manager to get you to 2.2. Then you can use RM again to download and install Flymans Rom wich is what i did. Don't forget to make a backup ;)

    sorry didnt know how much u needed..

    the bootrstrap is a .apk file so just copy to sdcard then click it in a file manager (should prompt you to install). open it and click teh first option (flash bootstrap)

    then use rom manager to flash clockwork recovery
