    Can I downgrade?

    Can I downgrade to any of the other android OS using RSD Lite? If so, could someone point me in the direction to the stock, verizon 2.1 rom along with instructions?

    yes you can, are you familiar with RSD at all? Because, if you are not it's a very risky process if you don't know what you are doing. I am not saying you don't know, but just making sure you know incase you are new to this... well here is the link Unroot/Unbrick your phone using .sbf - Android Central Forums just make sure you are careful and know what your doing

    if you are rooted you can do it through ROM manager premium which is going to be A LOT more easy and A LOT less risky

    Well, Rsswga, if hes like me. then he knows that verizon screwed us on this new upgrade. i din't have any problems until this update. now it takes about a minute for the home screen to load. I have way less signal than i did before the update(not sure if its because of my replacement phone or not). my phone has become almost unusable since the update. the only thing i like is having a real button for calls. instead of an icon that you might have on your home screen. And there are so many more that i can't recount at the moment.

    Factory Reset your phone first, re-sign in with your gmail account and set the phone back up. It is an extremely extremely good chance that will fix the issues you are having.

    Factory Reset won't downgrade or restore your OS

    That won't fix his problem, I have similar phone problem all a factory resetdoes is create more work for you putting all your info back in and does not downgrade you still are stuck with the garbage Android update 2.2 sucks wish I had 2.1 still and had been smart enough to not turn my $130 phone into a piece of garbage by installing this garbage update that totally destroyed everything.

    Though I own a mytouch slide 3G, the new update totally ruined it. Anyone out there with android 2.1 you are lucky never upgrade if you own a cooler phone like the mytouch slide or this one mentioned above I guess has similar problems too so don't upgrade it either.

    lol not even sure anymore if mine is similar, I had an awesome phone with android 2.1 and I now have a piece of junk with android 2.2 thanks to a stupid mistake that I can't undo. I thought all upgrades or updates were reversible when I did it I thought I could always go back if it doesn't work out in computers its true guess mobile phones really suck in comparison.

    There should be a way to SBF it back to original State. Try searching this site and google. Maybe there a more organized mytouch forum, i'm not to familiar with that phone. the 2.2 update was really positive for me on the OG.
