    This isn't new, Pete had that out like the day after ese81 came out, Kellex just made that guide for people that want stock 2.1 rooted instead of a custom ROM.

    I used to be rooted on 2.0.1 but i had to take my phone in for insurance claim and finally just got a new one so im a little rusty...but... can i flash sprecovery using the sbf file and then flash roms using an update.zip or would i have to root my 2.1 with the afore mentioned guide before loading custom roms.

    Just flash sprecovery, then use any rom that can be installed with the update.zip method and you're good to go.

    You can flash the 2.0.1 sbf to return you to completely stock, but then you can just receive the ota to go to 2.1
