from what i read CM7 running ext4, stock runing ext3 right?

so now i'm back with stock running froyo, i still have my backup files on with sd card. Do i root and install rom manager then install Back2Ext3, and final running restore? will this restore back to my original state since i backup using cwm to backup.

thank guy

yes, cm7 uses ext4 system mount. i just use a zip file which i flash from recovery if i need to get back to ext3.

here it is btw if you are on stock froyo and want to restore stock gingerbread (if i understood you right) you dont need to use back to ext3 again, just restore your back up.

Restore stock backup from CM needs to flash an ext4-backto-ext3 zip with cwm, what a pity you overwrite cwm with stock recovery.
Now you should try to rescue your phone with SmartFlash, finally consider nvflash method.

If you mind, try Django Manouche, Custom but stock based ROM http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1410662 . I tried many CM and MIUI roms but always ended restoring Django back
