Default Help Downgrading the OS to 4.6

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Guys...

I'm new here and I really need some guidance of how to downgrade my BB bold 9000 OS from OS 5.0 to 4.6

I bought my blackberry when I was in Australia 2009.
It still worked quite well until beginning of 2011 when I came back to my country in Asia.
Yesterday, I had my BB OS upgraded from 4.6 to 5.
It didn't go very well. It still have the same problem and even worst.
Still slow whenever I want to load an application although the guy who upgrade my OS had deleted some of my application.

I like the older version better than the OS 5
I still have the software CD from Blackberry contains Blackberry Dekstop Manager OS 4.6.
Also I have looked for some advice from the internet. I tried them but none were working.

So could someone help me how to downgrade it?
Thanks a lot
