Please Help Neo V-Downgrade from Ice Cream Sandwich to Gingerbread Problem.

Hello guys,i am having a problem with my Xperia Neo V.

I installed the ICS update and i don't like it.

The new update needs a lot of ram and makes my phone run slower than before.

I decided to downgrade from ICS to Gingerbread so i found the NeoV.4.0.2.A.0.62 ftf file and i was ready to flash it via Flash Tool.

I did the usual stuff i turned USB debugging ON But unfortunately i couldn't downgrade.

The reason is that Flash Tool requires for me to Not be in MTP mode.

I have no Idea how to do that so please Help.

Tell me how can i disable MTP mode and Maybe be in USB Mass Storage mode.

Or maybe tell me another way of downgrading.

Thanks in advance.

Hi nabeel,

I went to the given link for flashtool & downloaded latest version

Windows Edition - v0.9.0.0 (MD5 : 0A8CA4A2A0F89EA7F458DA60C709C0D9)

You have written 0.6.9.1, is it ok to use 0.9.0.0 ??

And after flash, if phone is connected to PC Companion, then it will directly saw update for ICS ?
