    all instructions given in all the forums about the release of GengerBread for Dx/D2

    clearly states that when you flash to Gingerbread and you want to go back to what ever Froyo based custom Rom you were running, you have to .SBF
    ..so the Botton line is.....YOU HAVE TO .SBF IN ORDER TO GO BACK TO FROYO...

    Correct you will need to sbf to get back to 2.2.1. Takes about 10 min after you have downloaded rsd, drivers and the sbf.
