It's really starting to wind me up and I really want to return to my original software; I've looked around but the guides all seem to be for different models and I'm getting more than a little bit confused, I'm pretty savvy when it comes to these things but I'm just not getting this!
Can anybody give me a step by step guide, in 'laymans' terms to downgrade again? I want my nice phone back!
You would need to root and flash the Ginger Bread firmware. Although not hard to do, it does carry risks and invalidates your warranty.
What problems and issues are you having? It might well be they are resolvable. If you do want to go back to GB we can help too.
