Unable to flash Stock 4.0.2.A.0.42... :(

Unable to flash Stock 4.0.2.A.0.42... :(

Hello Frnds,

As some of u might be knowing that I have recently updated my arc to 4.0.2.A.0.62 which cannot be rooted so as per the replies given by my frnds Uli n others, I took the help of XDA devlopers link and downloaded the flash tool. I followed the instructions on how to take backup of current rom using Flashtool & SEUS. As I came to know that mainly there are 3 files from SEUS update folder which we need to copy and which help us to create a .ftf file as a backup, I thought of creating a .ftf file of 4.0.2.A.0.42 as I did have saved the updates files for the same. I successfully created .ftf file for 4.0...42 firmware and when I tried to flash it using the flashtool, it is giving me some error. Can anybody tell me what might be the problem? Can I flash arc using the previous version of firmware(.0.42) over the latest updated firmware (0.62) ? Please help.. Slightly smiling Face Thanks..

ok.. Thanks.. Actually I included the main 3 files from the SEUS update folder while decrypting the them and then created the .ftf file out of it.. anyway, I'll try again.. also tell me if I have included all the files properly while creating .ftf file, I should be able to flash to 0.42 successfully.. right?
