    1) yes you can use the market still
    2) yes you can download your backups
    3) if you want you can just flash the 2.1 ROM and that would put you on 2.1 with root access

    You dont have to flash a custom rom. You are basically just like the leak,only u have the option to go back to 1.5

    Yes, you would need to have the recovery image on your phone so that you can reboot into recovery mode (Volume Up + Power). From there you would do the data/factory reset and dalvik-cache wipe, followed by flashing the ROM you would have saved to your SD card by selecting "Flash Zip from SDcard". Hope this helps.

    today it's not there what to do. Do i need to be rooted for all this to work like the command prompt wanted to see if i could get to the tools part to write in the codes. i wanted to see if every thing worked on my computer before i rooted my phone

    Only thing I can think of is to make sure your phone still has usb debugging checked and that your SD card isn't mounted. Unfortunately I can't help you any further with that due to me rooting my phone using a Mac.
