    Yes, as long as you are running Android v2.2.1 and are rooted.

    Install Custom Recovery
    Go to Android SDK | Android Developers and download the file that ends with .zip. Extract it to your C:\ drive. Go to C:\android-sdk-windows and open sdkmanager.exe.
    After it is open, a windows will pop out, click reject on all files except for:
    Android SDK Tools and Android SDK Platform tools.
    Make sure USB debugging is activated (On your phone go to settings> applications>development and check USB debugging) Then open up Cmd and type the following: cd C:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools.
    NOW you'll be able to input the commands needed to flash the Custom Recovery in this thread
    Finally Custom Recovery for 2.2.1 stock phones !!!!!!

    Here are the drivers for your phone.
    Download them and install before connecting your phone.

    After the drivers are installed, plug in your phone, DO NOT turn on USB storage.
    Hopefully you've already put the 2 recovery files on your sdcard.
    On your PC click Start>Run>type cmd.exe and then enter
    cd C:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools which is the path to the program that will push or install the 2 files onto your phone from the sdcard.

    Now continue forward using the commands outlined in the thread:

    If you do not get the # symbol the first time, try it again and watch the screen on your phone for SuperUser, it may ask if you want to allow super user rights.
    (See Attached)
    Just click Allow and proceed.

    Good luck! The door is open, be careful to read and follow the instructions outlined in any thread you are reading.
    Make sure it absolutely pertains to, not only your phone, but the Android version on it.
    Don't jump in if you have any doubts about your abilities, read some more to gain confidence and be prepared for those oops moments.
    Once you get Custom Recovery installed, the first thing you MUST do is create your first nand backup. It will save your ass if you make a mistake or something strange happens after you've decided to install a ROM.

    Are you typing "su" or su the latter is the one you want to type.

    After you enter cd C:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools
    it should return C:\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools>
    type adb and see what the response is.
    It should look like the attached image.
    If it doesn't, then check to see that your install path is correct.
