    Adam, what's the best/easiest way to find threads like these when a user like me needs them without scrolling through long thread posts ?? I tried the search engine and typed in "downgrade" but that didn't get me to this thread. Luckily I found this post of yours, but through reading through the many threads and posts. What your best advice based on your years of experience ??

    Any other way? Even using the 1.0 version of Blackberry Link I get stuck with 10.1.0.4181. And the only 10.0 autoloaders I found were for dev devices and they won't install :/

    I checked roughly 20 countries (2nd/3rd world contries), they all showed 10.1.0.4181.

    @Adam: Is that *any* 10.0 version? I foolishly upgraded from 10.0.90, thinking I had an autoloader, turns out it's for dev devices. Would hate to be stuck on 10.1/10.2 :/

    If you put up a 10.2 like 1047 you can't go back below 10.1.0.14xx (for reference). I think with 10.1.0.4xxx 10.1.0.9xx is blocked. And I don't get why would you wanna go back...

    I went back to Dev 10.1 and then to latest available 10.1.

    Experienced strange message when I tried flashing with 10.0. The message said this version of OS has been blocked from my device. So I had to download Developer version of 10.1 which worked and then upgraded to following. So I can no longer use 10.0 on my device.

    And with that native . Ac3 support is gone as well.

    Z10STL100-1/10.1.0.4780

    Keyboard is **** (preview too big), browser is slow, hate all the new, useless animations, transitations. But keyboard is the big dealbreaker. And 10.2 is even worse. They ******* added a ****ty animation that plays *every* single time you swipe left to delete the word. And no way to disable it. I don't get why BB adds all this crap for new users that can't be disabled. Same with the dumb choice to increase the font-size for word suggestions without letting you revert back.

    Argh. Might as well dump the Z10 if I can't go back to 10.0.

    So the delete word animation when you swipe left on the keyboard is the deal breaker??

    10.2 has a much quicker/smoother android run time, lock screen notification previews, toast notifications, native settings app, and yet the keyboard animation is what's driving you to go back 10.0? And I thought I had OCD!! :d

    Nah, the main issue is the larger font. Distracting as ****. Especially since it's actually the original size in the browser..

    10.1/10.2 also sucks for the way it handles the swipe up, the Q10 changes have made it worse. It was better in 10.0.

    The worst part is, 10.2 is actually decent enough on the Q5. Except that any android app is unusable due to the always visible bar.. :/

    (Also, it's sad that the Q5 is the better Q10. Q5 screen and layout with Q10 build would have been perfect :/)
