Default [Q] Downgrade from an ICS Rom to a 2.3.6 ROM

I upgraded my sgs2 from unnamed 2.2.1 to SHOStock 2.1 and I was wondering how I could go back to UnNamed 2.2.1? I tried looking around, but I couldn't find a definite answer. Should I just boot into recovery and flash the unnamed zip? Or what should I do?

Thanks

Just do a full wipe and flash whatever ROM you want. I don't think it matters if you're coming from ICS.

that's right, but make sure the modem flashes as well.

You could just restore the nandroid backup, which you saved right before you flashed...

All modems that work with this device are interoperable. I'm still on UCKH7 with ICS.

Just restore your nandroid, that's all.

Like the others said, if you don't have a nandroid backup, just do a full wipe & flash unnamed. I'm pretty sure it will flash the modem that unnamed comes with, but you wouldn't have to worry about modems anyway.
