I started with a stock Froyo ROM. The only tool that I could get to work for Froyo was "blackjack".

This link helped me:

Look for "ROOT ON Froyo (2.2.x, v10x)".

Once you root your phone (superuser will be installed) , install CWM's ROM Manager. From there it's Happy Hacking.

A note (or two):

You're going to have to make a decision about what you want to do concerning stability. Froyo and GingerBread-based ROMs are "solid"; they are usable as "daily-drivers", i.e., you can use them on a daily basis without fear of significant hiccups, freezes, and crashes.

ICS (4.0.4) and greater based-ROMs (including the factory ICS) can be problematic, with freezes, lock-ups, features not working, etc. Some folks are using KitKat-based ROMs as daily-drivers; good for them. They have more patience than I do.

My recommendation for a stable ROM is either Marvel 9 or Zeus 6.4; both are GB-based. Zeus 7.06 was absolute headache for my phone.

If you want to go all-out, try Evisceration's KitKat ROM:

He's one of the few developers still working on this old phone.

Did you come from ICS? Where did you get the Froyo image?

When you loaded the ROM and went to install, did it take you to the superuser screen?

Try updating superuser from the Play Store. The version might be old.
