Alright. Well thank you for clearing that up for me. Is there anything else that I can do to make this thing run more efficiently? I do have my msl number. Thanks again.

Like Ocnbrze stated you'll need a PC to go about it, just follow the instructions detailed HERE and you should be on the green

Older mac laptop?
The only computer that I have is an older mac laptop that I use a little for simple things. Typing a paper, check email, facebook, surf web, etc. The only option I see anywhere is for windows PC. Thank you guys for all your help! I appreciate it.

I was in your boat. Had no computer back when I rooted (fortunately, fastRX8 made a tutorial how to do it without a computer at all, and I'm forever grateful), but that was Eclair and before revolutionary or even unrevoked bacame necessary.

That said, it seems like Captain Throwbacks thread on mikmik forum about downgrading would work for you (from the bit that I've read), so don't completely give up hope. Earlier post linked to a thread, which I believe also has a link to Captains thread at mikmik.

I'll look for more direct link, gimme a minute.

Also, if there's anyone here who is probably most experienced to help, it would, without doubt, be Captain_Throwback, in case you might wanna PM him.

Good luck.

Edit: link doesn't look live. If you quote it, it should go live.
