    I am rooted with 2.0.1 and running BB 1.2. I haven't changed anything on my Droid1 in a while, but would like to get up to date with Froyo. My problem is that I can't find any way to update to 2.1 (as I am pretty sure that I have to be at 2.1 to get 2.2). I looked at the sticky for the easy way to update to 2.1, however, the links to download are no longer working (at least they didn't for me). Could someone please give me a heads up on the best course of action to get to the Froyo roms from 2.0.1.

    Which recovery are you using? You don't need to go to 2.1 to get to 2.2.. you can just jump straight to 2.2. Pick a rom, and just flash it like usual. Make sure you do backups!

    Seconded. Just pick a 2.2-based rom you like and flash it directly. Make sure you erase data and cache and make a backup!

    I am using Clockworkmod recovery. I flashed BB v0.4 and everything went smoothly. Now running 2.2! Thanks for the help.

    Also, I am thinking of flashing Cyanogenmod 6.0 Nightly...is it stable? What kernal are you using to overclock?

    I'm not sure about stability for that ROM, and I personally am currently using Chevy's LV 1.0ghz kernel. Works like a charm.
