    Hi to you all!

    I was wondering is it possible to downgrade from Gingerbread v2.3.3 back to Froyo 2.2? The phone is unbranded and unlocked also it is unrooted.

    Is there a method of doing this without being rooted?
    Also where is the best place to go to get the Froyo version, any links for the correct UK version would be appreciated and instructions too if possible.

    Android Version: 2.3.3
    Network: Vodafone (recently unlocked)
    Taskiller Used?: Nope
    [Optional]Are You rooted & which Rom: Nope

    If I remember correctly, it is possible, however, I believe you will need to obtain root / s-off, to enable you to run a boot loader downgrades from alpharev and then run the froyo ruu from shipped roms.

    Or once you have obtained root you could always just flash teppics74 stock froyo / gingerbread rom,

    Why do you want to do this? Most people want to get rid of network branded software, and the warranty (if you still have one) is fine with the official gingerbread.

    You can find RUUs at shipped-ROMs.com, under Android, device name bravo (not desire!). Make sure you know what version you are looking for (people sometimes load really old stuff and find that it doesn't work with their hardware). But as said you'll have to jump through some hoops to do this at all, as these packages are not intended to downgrade.
