Android 2.1= Eclair
Android 2.2= Froyo

You can't do anything until you update to 2.2

Search for RSD Lite to flash Froyo SBF files (ie stock ROMs). Plenty of info in this forum. Remember to wipe data & cache after flash.

After that, root, install 2nd-init.

For custom ROM I recommend CM10 4.1.2 since CM7 is a bit outdated.

20130301 CM7 for me is the best. Speed and stability.
