Exclamation LG ALLY Please Help!

I have a LG Ally VS740.
I was following a guide to downgrade to 2.1-update1
I tried downloading the Rom Manager app to load StormDroid.
I've tried atleast 15 different versions of Rom Manager, None of them work.
I've read around and some say it doesn't work with version 2.1 anymore.
I've tried updating with the LG Support Tool back to 2.2.2. That didnt work.
The phone is rooted already with z4root.

Is there anyway i can update this with a tool back to 2.2.2
Or just use PC App to load a rom onto the android.
Im just kinda stuck on what to do.
But all i want to do is pretty much just load either Velocity or StormDroid onto the device.
Thanks.

what stormdroid are you trying to install? stormdroid is only for Froyo (2.2) if im not mistakened. .... if your on 2.1 you have to use this guide and update to 2.2 [GUIDE] FroYo 2.2.1 for Root Users! (Updated 3/3/2011 at 3:40 pm EST - NOW EASIER THAN EVER!) ... and then you can flash Stormdroid.

Yeah, Im on that version, My phone doesnt prompt me for 2.2.2 update, And i can not install the application called "Rom Manager" it always parse errors so this is why im trying to update to 2.2.2 and hopefully it will install with that version.

I had the exact same problem. This worked for me. Using windows xp, download froyolitewin.zip, and extract to your c: drive, execute the froyo batch file, and sit back.

Dude THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Been trying to get this to work for like 3 weeks.
I just used the .bat, installed drivers trough it.
Booted my phone in Clockwork, and then installed StormDroid 2.0
THANK YO SO MUCH.
