    Yes. You'll have to root, flash a recovery image, wipe your phone clean, and install an obsolete ROM, or use a stock SBF. The SBF will also wipe your phone clean, and as soon as you get it set up you'll start getting nag screens to update every couple of days or every day.

    Or you can tell us what's wrong with your phone in the hopes we can fix it and save you having to go through all that. :)

    So now it's not working at all? You would have upgraded to 2.2 months ago, so if this is a recent problem it's probably either a hardware failure or a software fault of some kind.

    Okay. Did you get an OTA push or did you install manually?

    Over the Air.

    Okay, so you got an automatic update. That might have been the problem. OTA updates have a higher percentage of failure than manual updates. Recommendation the first is do one of the two things -- do a factory reset and lose all your data or do a manual install of the master update file and keep all your goodies. A factory reset may be forthcoming, but we'd like to save your data first if at all possible, correct?

    In that case I'd recommend you try the master install, if you're interested.
