    Welcome to the forum.

    It will be possible to manually flash your old firmware with Odin.

    Firmware can be downloaded from here
    Firmwares | SamMobile

    There's a good guide on flashing with Odin here


    Before downgrading your firmware it's probably worth seeing if we can solve the problem and get your phone running smoothly on the firmware you have now.

    After the factory reset did you run your phone for a bit without installing any apps or did you reinstall the apps you previously had? If the latter it could be one of those apps which is interfering.

    Also which carrier are you on and what's your new firmware?
