Blackberry Playbook has been upgraded to OS 2.0

My Boss has upgraded his playbook to OS version 2.0 but he hates it and wants it to be downgraded to the version beforehand.
I have spent a week looking on Google to see if I can downgrade and I have found a few articles that suggest how to do it. I have tried the suggestions and the playbook still is on OS 2.0. I have tried to find downloads for 1.0.7 or 1.0.8 and the only download I could find gave me page cannot be displayed.
I am really stuck now and my boss is getting a bit annoyed as he doesn't like the new functionality at all.
Please can someone help, does anyone have any suggestions either on how to downgrade or where to find a download of a earlier OS version so I can manually download for him.
Yours desperately!!!

Thanks for the link but I have tried that 3 times and I still end up with Version 2.0 on it and I cannot get it to stay as 1.0.7 or 1.0.8.
