Default Downgrade from .301 to .297, easy as DM or deeper?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys,

If AT&T is my carrier and I am downgrading from .301 to an official AT&T version .297 (re-leased today) do I need to do the process like wiping my device, deleting all old/new softare platforms on my computer, etc or will the desktop manager downgrade it for me with no problems like the same way it upgrades it for me? When i plugged in my device it kept asking if i wanted to downgrade because my applications were newer.

Thanks in advance for any help you guys can provide.

How do I downgrade the OS on my BlackBerry? - BlackBerryFAQ

You need to remove the .301 from your PC, and use loader.exe instead, always simpler that way.

So, the process asking you if you want to downgrade is correct, because you want to.
