Exclamation Downgrading from Jellybean to ICS

I'm a newb so i asked many ppl on different forums and everyone is telling me different thing , so please guys help me out once and for all.

I would like to downgrade from the leaked (glitchy) 4.1.2 to 4.0.3 (ICS).

I used this leaked ROM from XDA in order to install JellyBean into my SGSII. The pack contains CODE ,MODEM , PIT etc. Thought someone else told me it's dangerous to tick "repartition" in ODIN so i didn't put tick while installing Jelly but i do placed the .pit file into it's place in ODIN. That's in short what i did.

Now i want to downgrade back to ICS and wait for the official Jelly to be released. Though i'm experiencing some difficulties due to lack of knowledge. Should i install just the single .md5 official ICS ROM from samfirmware or i need a "chopped" one with all it's CODE, MODEM , PIT etc. ? Also do i need to mark repartition? (note i didn't marked it while upgrading) . Also do i have to wipe data and all these things i've never did before after downgrading?

Yes , Alan. I've managed to downgrade to 4.0.3 with a help from a friend. It's a little tricky but here's what you need to do. You'll have to use the ROM that comes in three (four) separate files ( I9100XXLPH.zip ) + the PIT file u1_02_20110310_emmc_EXT4.pit (note: both files are for Europe , you'll have to do research to find yours if you're outside Europe) and you set 'em up like this:



After you flashed it by following the instructions above, download the official ROM for your country from SamFirmware - download it and flash it again as usual (by marking just PDA). After the second flash completes you're all done!!

I'm experiencing a little lag after i downgraded but this could be bug with my ROM (not sure) , i did factory reset few times but that doesn't seem to fix the lag but it's okay , it's not that obvious. My battery life tho improved which i'm really happy with!

Good luck, i hope i helped.

WARNING!

I would never recommend flashing a .PIT, (Partition Information Table), file under most circumstances as this can be dangerous and even seriously screw up your phone big style!

In the normal course of flashing stock ROM's for the Galaxy S2, the .PIT file and repartition in Odin, should NOT be needed at all.

I certainly would not recommend just Googling any .PIT file as unless you flash the correct one for your device and firmware you can be in big trouble and cause all sorts of problems, both now or in the future!

Normally, to flash a stock firmware and indeed, most of the custom firmware's, is to download just one stock Samsung .tar file from SamMobile and go to PDA in Odin and load it and then connect your phone in Download mode and flash the firmware.

For a step-by-step guide and video on flashing stock Rom's, see under, "My firmware is not eligible for ICS yet but I want it now!", in post #1, here.

Same thing told me other forumers as well as the complete opposite , so ended up doing steps above and as you can see my phone is "live and healthy". Maybe the .pit is needed because the leaked 4.1.2 rom has one and the instructions said it should be used. I agree it might be dangerous to play with PIT but in this case it's all good.

Yes , mine is also Galaxy S2 GT-I9100 16 GB. As far as i know if it get locked after flashing it can be unlocked with a simple .apk , the most important thing is now for you to successfully downgrade. Good luck mate!

ok just to be sure if i go into storage here, on my galaxy s2 i9100 running leaked version of jellybean this is what i see
device memory 1.97bg
applications 234
available `1.71gb
usb
11.08gb
apps 13.78mb
etc....

but at the bottom it has miscellaneous files.

also i have noticed i cant really access my sd card, when i plug into pc, and then go to sd card, i get uknown icons, etc.... and it takes sometimes ages to access or sometimes not at all. so does this look like i have messed up the partition, or did jellybean do it. so do i need to use the pit file?

The, "leaked", stock, Samsung ROM on SamMobile does not have a separate .PIT file and the popular one on xda does not need it flashed either, as per the instructions, here.

This may account for your problems with the Jelly Bean firmware and for your numerous problems on the xda forum where you were asked why you initially flashed a .PIT file, here and here.

Can someone confirm if this is correct before i flash back to ics? http://imgur.com/36eyz.jpg

It would appear that you are instructing people to make the same mistake as you!

It's not Jelly's fault for slowpoke respond times. It's usually like that...
Mine got a little faster , not sure if it's because i put USB debugging mode or because i reinstalled drivers.... Using the pit file is all your choice , i already told you what i did and my phone is okay! Also make sure you backup your stuff cuz you'll need to do factory reset.

Jelly Bean is generally acknowledged to be the fastest and slickest firmware for the Galaxy S2 to date when flashed properly.

It is not, "usually like that"!!!

Do you honestly know what you are doing and saying as your post #1 here, and your posts on xda, indicate otherwise.

It usually responds slow no mater what version of Android i'm using. Also i knew nothing until i did it myself - from that point i can proudly say "I DID IT MYSELF - EVERYTHING WENT WELL" and can give advices from my experience. It's all his choice to do it or not.

if you check ur storage in settings, how much gb does it say you have at the top, because mine is 1.97gb, does this mean my pit is damaged? or wrong, as i think that would account for the fail in odin.

Perhaps you would be good enough to explain why, exactly, in your opinion,visualdesine needs to flash a .PIT file at all?

Because he'll be flashing with 3 files , not single .md5
From what i've been told when flashing with 3 files - you need to use pit
If you're using a single md5 rom , it's not needed.

Or perhaps you have to stop argue with me and tell him what to do since you're more acknowledged !?

When you place the pit file it will automatically tick repartition (see screenshot above).

well i think its because my partition is crazy, if you look at my storage etc... it is very very low, etc..... and i have tried flashing official roms, etc... 4/0.3 4.0,4 and odin just fails crazy stuff, and all because i flashed the leaked version, wont be doing this ever again.

if i am correct, the repartition ticked formats your drive, then the pit file sets it up. i dont know if this is correct, but its logical

I am not arguing with you. Far from it. I am trying to not let people make the same mistake you did initially and merely pointing out that flashing the .PIT file on the Jelly Bean leak was NOT needed and people were instructed to NOT to use it... which for some inexplicable reason, and against all advice, you did. Then, judging from your posts on xda and here, you encountered problems after the update to Jelly Bean.

You may well have been advised to re-flash your .PIT file when it came to downgrading as you had previously flashed it, against instructions, in the Jelly Bean update and whoever was advising you was trying to put this right. However, in the normal course of events, flashing a .PIT file is NOT needed and can be very dangerous if you do not know what you are doing.

Unless visualdesine has screwed up his Jelly Bean update by flashing a .PIT file, there should be no reason for him to flash it this time.

I have already suggested the accepted way to flash firmware in post #6 of this thread.

well the one i downloaded does have a pit file, etc.. but i just noticed that it has two, one is 16gb and a 32gb, cant remember where i downloaded this from, but i think i must have flashed the wrong pit, maybe the 32gb. and i think that is my problem, so i guess i will have to flash the 16gb and hope for the best.

In conclusion:

Psydex flashed JB with PIT file and it screwed up the phone. He then flashed back ICS again with PIT file that fixed the phone. (Maybe the later PIT file replaced the problem PIT file)

Visualdesine flashed ICS with PIT file and it screwed up the phone.

So, never flash with PIT file unless you flashed an earlier PIT file that caused the problem in the first place. Flashing with PIT file can cause phone to be bricked.

Psydex got lucky, Visualdesine listen to wrong advice (because it didn't suit him) and now Ironass has to play hero and save the day.

So no point arguing.... just need to fix the problem.
Visualdesine... a little groveling for Ironass would do not harm... lol

I'm so glad, for your sake visualdesine, that you are up and running again.

Trust me, it was NOT the fault of the Jelly Bean ROM in any way, shape or form. It was the instructions that you followed against my advice.

You were very, very, lucky for it not to have fried your motherboard and hard bricked your phone. This requires a costly repair, about 125, ($200 US).

See here:-

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1896383

Just one question... why did you ignore my advice and follow psydex's, even after all the evidence to the contrary?

Please do not let this experience colour your views on flashing firmware or Android Forums. Whilst we may not always get it 100% right, we do try our best to give the most helpful and accurate advice usually.

Any reset whatsoever will not alter the firmware, only flashing a new ROM will do that. Rooted users have also the option of restoring a nandroid back up. A nandroid backup should be made straight away on rooting and before flashing any zip file mod or kernel. They are large files, but you only need one on your rooted phone to get out of most problems. Do a new one before any mods, delete or copy the old one and you can instantly restore your phone should you encounter any problems with the one you just made.

My Indian is a lot worse than your English.

This thread is for downgrading from JB back to ICS.

You appear to want to go from ICS to JB.

If so, this is explained in post #1, here.

My mistake, sorry!

The firmware, "I9100XWLPX_I9100NEELP5_NEE.zip", is for Nordic Countries and does not contain an Indian language pack. The latest, stock, Samsung firmware for the Indian Samsung Galaxy S2, GT-i9100, International version, not the G model, is, "I9100XWLPW_I9100ODDLPC_INU.zip", which has the Indian language pack and is Android 4.0.4.

You will need to flash this, using Odin. Use the step-by-step guide and video, here. DO NOT USE THE FIRMWARE THEY OFFER. Use the Indian one I mentioned.

I have given you the correct Samsung ICS stock firmware for India, CSC code ODD, for you to download and flash, in my previous post. Just click on the link.

Since you must have used Odin and flashed the JB firmware to your phone... the risk is the same when downgrading to ICS.

My advice would be that if you are not confident about down grading from JB to ICS then leave it the way it is.
