I want to downgrade my A5 2017 to Android 6.0.1 but I can't seem to find an official Android 6.0.1 ROM for the A5 2017.

I am not experienced at all with ROMs, so a helping hand would be, well, helpful.
your best bet would be is to install twrp, format system, boot, data, cache all that stuff, and extract system.img, boot.img from a 6.0 firmware for the a5 2017, and then flash it like a gsi. this could be a hit or miss, as it wasnt usable on my j5 2016, as i didnt have wifi, but perfectly fine on my s9.
