On the suggestion from danceswithbongs I will repost my problems I had and how I fixed them coming from trying out Gingerbread ROMs and then going back to Froyo. The original post is here #56: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/project-elite/132273-what-you-4-2-5-0-2-a-6.html#post1375730 I used RSDlite 4.9 (google it, the .rar password is "alabama") and I grabbed the FRG83D .sbf file from Peter Alfonso's site here: Peter Alfonso to go back to stock, but if your SDcard slot is working, you most likely won't have to do this. Choose the rooting method of your choice and install Rom Manager and Clockwork Recovery. Then format your SDcard and repartion with Rom Manager and install your Froyo ROM (which PE4.2 is the best IMO).. If you can get PE4.2 installed and working good enough, you should be able to do a format then repartion of the SDcard with Rom Manager and then use the "mount USB" feature in Clockwork Recovery to do the rest and perform a clean install without having to go back to stock. I also don't recommend using and backup programs for restoring your apps going from Gingerbread to Froyo or Froyo to Gingerbread. Do a clean install from the market. The easiest way I've found to reinstall my apps is to use my computer when the phone is connected to wifi and go to the Android Market here: https://market.android.com/ sign into "My Market Account" and push your apps to your phone. Hope that helps! //edited to correct the actions in Rom Manager were repartitioning, not formatting.
