    On the LG Ally is this possible to do? I've already rooted the device but wish to return to 2.1 to be able to flash other roms but obviously only unless it can be done.

    There are roms available for flashing on 2.2, and my personal opinion is that these are better than the 2.1 roms.

    That aside, if you follow the 2.2.1 root guide by Trident up until the update.zip, and block the froyo update, you'll be at 2.1.

    I tried flashing my phone over to a different carrier, but they weren't able to flash it over due to the fact that they didn't have a software that could work with the Android 2.2. My question is, "If I downgrade this to 2.1, will the company be able to flash my phone to the carrier?"

    Which carrier? And the ally is a PITA to flash correctly. Radio needs patched.
