    Hi all, I'm running SS 4.7 and want to try 5.2. My question is, say I want to go back to 4.7...Do I have to sbf back to froyo first? Or can I just flash the backup? I'm pretty sure I have to sbf it back, but just wanted to make sure my mind is blanking out on me lol.

    Thanks!

    There are NO stupid questions in my forum ;)

    You should be able to 'wipe all' (including system) and re-install 4.7 ... I could be wrong as I've never done it myself ... but I would try that first.

    I jump back and forth from froyo to Gingerbread all the time. Yes you can, just make sure you wipe everything before you restore your froyo backup. I have done this numerous times,wipe multiple times (I usually do 4 or 5 wipes) to clear all/any Gingerbread out before you install the backup.
