It won't let you download telnet? Are you following this guide?

I guess it was because I was on 1.0? I got it all situated...now I just gotta figure out how to convert my MicroSD to useable space for downloading apps....Google Play Services is needed for another app I installed...and thats the only two things i have installed!

So you are rooted and running a custom ROM now but have no room left in data partition?
If so you can try custom mtd partitions to free up some room or partition your sdcard to ext4 and run apps from ext partition, much faster than fat32

What recovery are you using? Try a full format of SD on PC, or even use something like gparted to do it if it won't work on recovery

I have used RA-Dream Recovery and CWM Recovery....I tried using Partition Magic to format and partition but it didn't even recognize my card at all after that.....
