    i do have one question about this procedure. All previous beta os's are still listed under programs to delete on my laptop. Can i just delete .114 or do i have to delete all of them.. If I do not have to delete all of them can't i just reload it without downloading it again? Thanks.

    I would recommend deleting all the OSes save the one you want to load on your storm.

    Good luck and let us know how to works out!

    I followed all the steps above including the clean wipe before trying to downgrade the os to .75 from .100
    and now it says there is no software update us required for this device. Then I clicked the options and I get the same message as above. Need help.
    Try going to c> program files> common files> research in motion > app loader : loader.exe file to install the OS onto your storm.

    BTW, can you please remove the OP quote from your post? Takes up A LOT of unnecessary space and makes reading the thread a bit hard. Thanks much and let us know how you fare!

    Thanks to the Storm, I am a converted BB users. Modifications are similar but the specifics are very different (the apploader etc).

    Your post made it EASY.

    Many thanks for your effort - it took a lot of time to put togeter.

    Thanks for the thead. It worked flawlessly so now I'll be able to get my new phone under warranty, then go right back to .113 when it's here.

    When downgrading, do you always have to downgrade all the way to .75 everytime you downgrade?

    Nope tho thats what most people do. You can downgrade, or upgrade for that matter, to any other OS than the one you have using these exact steps.

    Good Luck!

    Thanks a bunch! I just purchased a Storm and it was preloaded with v .114. It had the keyboard glitch where you can't use your keypad while in a call.

    This was my first time doing anything to my phone and I had no problems!

    You need to go into your applications and uninstall .114, then install .75.

    I'm quite desperate. I have followed all instructions and DM finds the downgrade right away. However, when I reach the Options screen nothing happens after that and I get a message saying that no action is required
