I think you could have made your own custom FTF file using xperifirm. But now you may need to use someone elses file. I m still on 11, US version, was wondering why you wish to downgrade. Aside from personal opinions about UI looks, anything go terribly wrong, like abysmal battery life or spectacular crashes?

Unfortunately xperifirm doesn't let you download old firmware, so now that the android 12 firmware is out I can't get the 11 version. I have ended up just returning the phone since I was still within the return period, once I get the refund, I'm going to buy another new one which should still have android 11 on it.

To answer your other question, no android 12 didn't have any major issues as far as I could see. I even rooted it and installed exposed (unfortunately no gravity box for 12 yet though) and it was working fine. The only bug I noticed was with scrolling, sometimes the page or list would have no momentum and sometimes it would be completely normal.

If everything was ok, why do you want the phone running android 11? I am reading as much as i can before installing android 11, but sadly there isnt much out there to help me decide. For now i m holding off.

I just hate the ui. If you have a pixel that you can put 12 on you can preview it that way, otherwise you could try emulating it in android studio. Make sure to do a nandroid backup before updating though if you do decide to.
