Yes, you can go between the 2 software as much as you want.

Hold R+B+ Power for downgrade and reset with the Kin phone off.

Note this only works for the older models, if your is newer it will only reset the software.

Yes, redoing the same button combination will bring back the "m" software.

ex: orig Kin --> "m"
orig Kin <-- "m"

Yes you can do this for both KIN ONEm and KIN TWOm versions.

Note: A good indicator to check if your phone can do this open the back panel and remove the battery, if there is a hand written "m" there on model sticker you can switch software's. If it doesn't you can still try.
