Question [Q] Downgrading gingerbread to froyo

I have a Samsung Galaxy S 4G (SGH-T959V), my phone came stock with Froyo 2.2.1 (T959VUVKD1). My phone is now running on Gingerbread 2.3.6 (T959VUVKJ6).
I want to go back to stock Froyo 2.2.1 because i like it better. Can I go back to Froyo 2.2.1? Can anyone please post what I need to put into odin and where i would put each file into odin to get my phone running back on Froyo 2.2.1 if i currently have Gingerbread 2.3.6. Thanks.

What if my sgh-t959v, gingerbread 2.3.6 is rooted would the one click thing back to froyo 2.2.1 still work if my phone is rooted? So your saying i just have to download the froyo one-click and it will take my phone from gingerbread 2.3.6 to froyo 2.2.1 all by itself? Im really nooby at this please let me know.

Yes, the one-click will basically install the other version on your phone. It will most likely remove root.

You will almost certainly have to backup all the data you wish to preserve with something like Titanium Backup and restore it to the phone as Android and apps don't "downgrade" very gracefully.

Hey can anyone tell me the process of using the kd1 one-click for my sgh-t959v. I heard that i have to go into dl mode and plug in my phone and open the sgh-t959v-kd1-one-click.jar and run it. And the second time i run it i should have flash bootloaders checked. And after that i should do factory reset, clear cache from the android recovery screen? After i run the jar for the first time what will my phone screen be on after the process is done? After ive ran the kd1.jar twice will it take me setting up phone phone steps. Please anyone tell me steps using the kd1-one-click.jar if i have to run it once or twice and have flash bootloaders checked. Thanks.

You should be following this guide when flashing one clicks:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...78&postcount=2

The one click @bhundven mentioned is this one:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/team...-one-click.jar

To be specific, lumin's guide will tell you how to flash a one click. You should be flashing the one click I linked you to (kd1-stock-sgh-t959v-one-click.jar) while following the instructions in that guide.

Good luck!
