First post here - hope posting links to other Streak sites is OK....
Have you looked into the QDL tool? It is a piece of Qualcomm software (designed to update these devices I think). I have heard that it will unbrick, leaving you at 2.2 at the end also. One of the developers (Steve IIRC?) let it loose a few weeks ago.
I used it to put Dell's 2.2 (build 10688) on my streak; before OTA updating to Dell's 12821 which is where I am at now. It is really easy, took me all of 10 minutes to do. If you want to go on to Steve's version I think it is easier from there also.
I know at least one user of streaksmart.com got his unbricked with it, and I have heard that the wise people on the IRC channel have helped others unbrick with QDL. There is a lengthy thread about it at streaksmart.com forums also. If you have driver issues there is some good info there.
