    Go to this post, root it, and then get a rom like Playful God's port of CM7. Don't worry about custom recoveries, the root guide takes care of that and installs one for you.

    I have done a successful 2.3.7 flash with 2.2.2.

    He has the Optimus M+ and can't do that method. He also can't install a ROM from there (the OM+ doesn't have any roms).
