    So i updated my phone and now it moves really slowly - i wanna go back to 2.0.1

    hey guys this is my first post.
    and sorry its a post asking for help.
    i was waiting patiently for the 2.1 update
    and the night it came out i downloaded the update.zip from droid-life
    put it in the root folder of my sd card.
    when my phone was done updated and i got back to home screen
    i noticed how laggy my phone was
    after i use the web and gallery, all my icons go blank for a good 10-15 seconds and then pop up again.
    it takes another 5 seconds to get to my text messages
    and when i get phone calls, some times the screen freezes up for a few seconds and wont let me answer the call.
    its crazy. i tured off the live wall papers, but im not sure that has helped.
    ive been living with it for the past week, but today it got unbearable
    this shouldnt be happening
    i dont know whats up with my phone.
    can i restore it some how?
    go back to 2.0.1?
    please help!

    Yes you are going to have to use RSD Lite and flash the 2.0.1 esd56 sbf. Hold on let me find the link.

    Restore 2.0.1 for rooting, or Unroot/Unbrick your phone using .sbf There ya go, and if I may suggest, go back to 2.0.1 then try the OTA when it comes to your phone. I did it the manual way the night it came out also, and have not had any of your problems. But it's just a thought.

    Your contacts are saved to your Gmail. You might want to back up your apps though.

    I think guys that we need to tell people that if it's running slow it's not the OS. The OS 2.1 is faster then 2.0.1. The problem is one of two things: Either they have live wall paper they are running that's causing things to hang a bit or they need to do a factory data reset. Once they do this there is no need to go back to 2.0.1. Heck, sometimes all it takes is a battery pull after the update.
