You're making this way to convoluted. All that one needs to do when updating from stock 2.1 on the VM Intercept is to download the (official unofficial) update file, rename it to 'update.zip' on the root of the sdcard, boot into recovery, and apply the update. That's it. It installs Froyo and the new radio, etc, itself...all from the update.zip. No need to mess with kernels and recovery or wipe anything ....except one's own azz if they go take a chit while waiting for it to reboot. In fact, when I updated it even kept all of my 2.1 widgets and icons and imported them into Froyo ...I didn't need to do a thing.
Oh, I see ....you had to convert your Intercept back to 'stock' first. Nevermind...
