    I know I haven't had it but a day or so, but...... I think I want to go back to 2.3.6...... Hope it grows on me or I may try to figure a way back.

    It is going to have to grow on you because going back to ginger bread is impossible.

    Try going back and tell us how it worked out for you...I'm suspecting you'll get a nice new boat anchor.

    I think actually it would truly define impossible, since it is in fact not possible. Jumping back an OS is not possible like jumping forward one is, the base system of the ICS is completely different and trying to flash anything before that would end up with like MyEntityRemains so eloquently put it a new boat anchor.

    Granted it would have to be for one of those little inflatable things, but a boat anchor non the less.

    That is completely untrue I downgraded back to GB after I installed ICS the first time.

    It is fairly easy to do. I only had to flash a kernel and radio and then GB.

    You can go back to GB from the .75 and .79 leaks but not the OTA or any other leak

    It's completely possible to downgrade an OS, just not in this case. On my Droid X I went back and forth between GB and FroYo several times

    I knew it was possible for leaked OS's because I did it with GB and Froyo on my Droid Pro. I thought official builds once installed you were stuck, I guess either way it is a moot point for the OP since they are indeed stuck with this one for now.

    I guess it's probably a different story with every device, but you're right, the OP is most likely stuck on ICS for good.

    Give it time you'll learn to love this new OS. Luckily Motorola didn't screw This one up like Samsung did with touch-wiz.
