    Downgrade from JB to ICS

    Hey.. My phone was recently upgraded on JB and one of my most important app Viber doesn't work.. as well some other important one but without that one I'm just lost..
    Could anyone help me with directions how to get back my ICS on my phone as it was before ? I guess factory reset wouldn't work ha ?

    Appreciate your help..

    No a factory reset wouldn't work. What carrier are you with? You would probably need to flash the stock ICS images via ADB to get back but it would wipe your device. I'm no expert so wait for others with more knowledge to chime in as well.

    Yep. Like they said. You will need a total wipe. Boot loader and everything needs to be reverted back.

    I forgot to mention that when you go back to ics, you'll be prompted for the update from time to time because it's automatic

    I have the RAZR Maxx HD and have the same problem with the new JB 4.1.1 upgrade. CAn anyone provide step by step instructions to get back to ICS 4.0.4?
    I've never done any modifications or manual upgrades before so I need instructions for dummies.
