Hey I am desperately looking to find how to downgrade my nexus s from the terrible ICS version back to Gingerbread.. I have already tried to flash into 2.3.6 and 2.3.4 using rom manager but got an "installation aborted" response.. I have read here that I can also do it using Odin but couldn't find enough info to understand how to do it. Plus, I am a MAC user but in case there is no solution for it using mac Ill love to get some directions for Windows users.. Any kind of help would be appreciated..

just like what sean1984 told you, choose your correct full rom phone version from that link

in your case is "basband version: I9020"

worse case scenario search for Odin topic

and you can use Odin to go back to stock
