    Welcome to Android Forums @Squiizz :)

    Sorry to be the one to inform you but you current firmware is a fused 8 (aboot) and all other firmwares are fused 7 or below. This will result in an "sw rev check" Odin fail or something similar. Bootloaders and modems are upward compatible but never downgradeble.


    G935FXXS8ETC1 Count five digits from the end and thats your fused (aboot). In this case its an 8. No way to downgrade. :(
