Waa? Install gingerbreak, format your sdcard. Run the app, wait for your phone to reboot. Should find a superuser app in your app drawer. That usually means your rooted.
Sounds like you dont understand rooting yet...
Anywho, continuing on... go to the market and install clockwork mod. Start it up and allow super user permissions and click on install recovery and choose ally. Safe side, install it again to make sure it went through. Then select the option to boot into recovery. If your in a different looking recovery, your golden. Download a rom of choice and place it on your sdcard, boot up into clockwork recovery and select wipe and wipe user data and cache and then choose install from sdcard. Select your rom and install. Wait for the process to complete and make sure you remember your gmail account.

Thx for the replies everyone. Everytime I try to flash a custom ROM I get an Android with a caution side then it just reboots.

Alrighty well that means the recovery didnt install or copy over correctly so what you need todo is run rom manager again and install the ally custom recovery again.

If you're still having trouble installing ClockworkMod Recovery, I've found that gnm's amonra style recovery tends to install correctly more often than CWMR. It takes using either adb or terminal emulator, so it's a bit less approachable. However, it's very worth it in my experience. Meaning it not only installs correctly more often, but also actually works better.

Here is the link to the thread containing the recovery image and installation instructions. Make sure to pick the right recovery image for your phone (called recovery-ra-aloha on the download page). Then, use the "easy install via script" instructions in the linked thread. I did this using terminal emulator, though the thread mentions that adb is preferred. If you follow every step to the letter, you should have a very capable recovery image for your Ally, at which point many much custom ROM awesomeness can ensue.
