I tried looking around the forums to see if someone has had this problem before. Couldn't find something similar.

I had stock 4.0.3 installed and I saw today that 4.0.4 was being pushed out. Since 4.0.3 wasn't a stock build I tried to downgrade to 2.3.6 in order to keep everything stock. I rooted the phone, installed the ROM Manager and flashed 2.3.6 through Clockworkmod Recovery. Everything went smoothly but when I powered on the phone force quit messages kept popping up and I can't get past the welcome screen. When I go into Fastboot mode and try to go in Recovery mode it just shows the Android symbol and a warning sign. I tried flashing a recovery .zip file I found online through fastboot but couldn't manage to do it (I'm on Mac OSX)

Can someone please help me? I'm completely desperate and wouldn't care about erasing everything (I think I already did, actually).

Thanks in advance.

flash a recovery.img

that multiple fc happened to me when i installed a i9023 rom on my i9020a.
unzip the recovery.zip and flash the .img file through fastboot and make sure you have the right rom for your model

Thank man, but that's what I tried to do. I got confused and wrote that it was a .zip up there. I'm really confused and couldn't flash the .img. Could you walk me through it? or point me to a thread that shows me how to do it?

I just tried that. I get this message: "error: cannot load 'twrp-crespo-2.0.0RC0.img'" I don't know what to do!
