    How to Downgrade Android ICE Cream Sandwich to GingerBread Version?

    Hi, I have been Using Samsung Galaxy Ace Mobile for the past few months. Previously, it has Android Gingerbread Version. Then, I upgraded it to Android Ice Cream Sandwich. But, now i donít like the features of ICS and i wanted to return back to Android Gingerbread Version. Is there any way to downgrade my Android ICS version to Gingerbread Version?

    Hi,
    Since you are using a Ice cream sandwich ROM in Samsung Galaxy Ace the ROM is supposed to be custom build which can be downgraded by flashing a new Rom over the the one available. In order to downgrade follow these steps that is downloaded the required ROM and then place it in your SD card so that the Rom will be present then boot into Recovery by pressing the power button there select the option as to boot into recovery once the phone boots into recovery select option as to format/Data Wipe this will clear the data and contents of your old ROM and then select the option as "Install Zip from SD card" then select the option as "Choose Zip form SD card" once the Sd card is opened navigate to the place where you placed your ROM and then install it. Once the install is successful wipe cache and dalvik cache and reboot.
    Hope this Helps.

    Hello
    This it is risky but surely possible.
    But you have to work directly on the hardware.
    You have to formatted the ROM of the device.
    then have to be install the Ginger Bred in this Rom.
    Then reassemble your device.
    This process is costly ,time consuming and also very risky.
