Default How to downgrade from ICS to 2.3.6 Gingerbread

A week ago I upgraded my Galaxy S2 and my wife's Galaxy Blaze to ICS - what a disappointment. I was able to downgrade by S2 following this thread link but can't find the 2.3.6 image for Galaxy Blaze S 4G.

Can anyone help?

thanks

Hi atamatics

Go to SamMobile firmware page. In the search window type in your phone's model number and it should show all firmware available for download for your phone.

Welcome to the forums Eric

Go to recovery and do a factory reset and it should fix it.

I was about to say the same - that's what fixed it for me too.

Why were you disappointed? I'm receiving this message from T-Mo saying that I can upgrade, but I don't know if I should.

I was going to upgrade my Blaze to ICS, but decided not to do it after reading a glowing review of ICS at PCMag.com; it also mentions No flash for ICS, increased resource use, and some other negatives for upgrade. I decided to wait until I buy next phone which will have more RAM, perhaps quad core. I'm happy with the Blaze and Gingerbread.
So since no upgrade, I rooted. Probably should have expressed my experiences here earlier. I read PCMag.com regularly. Any new phone, hardware, or app I use a search engine see if PCMag.com, xda, Android Forums, or any other forum or blog discusses it. That's how I found this forum.

How did you "not update"? Mine tells me that I have an update ready to be installed and asks if I want to do it right now or postpone for some amount of hours. When those hours are up, I get another nag message. Any way to stop this?

I tried going to the software update portion of the setting menu but when I click it I just get that same message asking me to update...no actual setting menu

I wasn't going to upgrade, but friends were saying, I was reaching for more happiness. I was happy with gingerbread. The ICS has too many little innovations that dont do diddly save use RAM, bluetooth doesn't work, my simple note pad developed unneeded features, and a few other irritants. I want ginger back.

Don't let the name fool you, this isn't the typical "4G" you're normally used to. The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G will take advantage of T-Mobile's 4G HSPA+ network, that's capable of hitting up to 42Mbps download speeds... Read More
