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.
