  1. Download files and place on SD card:

    update-nexusone-FRF50-noradio-signed.zip from Modaco.com (May 24: noradio files added - should work fine for T-Mo & AT&T!)

    froyo-rooter-signed.zip from Cyanogen

  2. Titanium Backup -> Backup all user apps
  3. Turn off phone -> Hold Volume Down, then Press Power button
  4. Enter Recovery
  5. Backup/Restore -> Nand backup
  6. Wipe if you have a Sense UI ROM (no wipe needed coming from Cyanogen)
  7. Flash update-nexusone-FRF50-signed.zip
  8. Reboot, you'll get Android-falling-out-of-box
  9. It will reboot into Recovery, select Reboot again
  10. It should boot into 2.2, yay!
  11. You should still have root, but if you want BusyBox (or lost root somehow), Cyanogen has done it again! Go back into Recovery and flash froyo-rooter-signed.zip. Then Titanium Backup will work once again.

I got that while the radio was updating, it should boot back into the recovery menu then reboot once more for FroYo
