    Hi there,

    I'm looking to 'downgrade' my Incredible S' Gingerbread back to Froyo - is there any way to do that myself via a firmware installer etc, bearing in mind the phone is not rooted? I'm posting here as the Incredible S forum doesn't seem to have much support, whereas this one does!

    Thanks,
    Jon.

    I've moved this here since it's not really suitable for the DHD section.

    Check out this guide. I'm assuming 1.36 roms are 2.2 based, since it's the release version.

    Thanks Xyro, but by the sound of it, it's not possible to downgrade from GB to Froyo, as the radio is different. Bummer. Looks like I'm stuck with this magnificent 'upgrade'!

    Yes, but not a useful one saying they will be fixing it. They seem to see it as a 'feature' they've added!! See below:

    Dear Jon Gapes,

    Thank you for contacting HTC regarding your HTC Incredible S.

    Jon, HTC is a forward thinking company and appreciates any feedback received from its customers. Your comments have been passed to the appropriate department for consideration.

    In regards to the Wi-Fi, we included a new feature in our phones that will automatically switch between Wi-Fi and 3G data connections based on which connection is stronger. Wi-Fi and data connections can sometimes fluctuate depending on the distance and environment you are in. In order to provide you with the most seamless experience online, your phone will automatically switch from Wi-Fi to 3g if the Wi-Fi signal becomes too weak.

    In order to prevent that I would advise you to switch the mobile network OFF and also switch "Best WiFi Perfomance" under the Wifi Advanced Settings.

    I hope that this information meets with your requirements, should you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us again.

    Sincerely,

    Alessandra

    HTC
