    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

    unzip it first, then you will have the .apk file. after you unzip, click on the .apk fil that was unzipped. this will ask you to install...if you haven't installed any programs you have downloaded previously it will ask you to turn on unknown sources in the settings, it should take you there automatically. turn that on. press back button. install the .apk. go to your program list and click on droidx bootstrap recovery. press the top button. then load up rom manager, goto stock images, download, make a backup, install. voila!
