I have a problem, I got gingerbread before it came out without rooting off druid-life.com because I didn't know for sure it was going to come out, now that it is definally out I want to get the legit one and the only way to do that is to downgrade to froyo and and download the real one would anybody know how to do that??? Thnks

Do you want root access on Gingerbread or not? If you don't, you can kill 2 birds with one cd, so to speak, as 1KDS has made an SBF cd that will take you to the official Gingerbread OTA in 1 step. Again that will work only if you DO NOT want root access...See here:

Look for this file in the first post:

Download - 1KDStaz0.9_4.5.596.iso (http://www.multiupload.com/Z4QX095L9K) (4.5.596 Gingerbread (currently no root method))
221mb (231,735,296 bytes)
MD5 (1KDStaz0.9_4.5.596.iso) = ff07b94f66edcc767b11b4f3c024b535

In the link cory gave you, there will be a link for the 2.3.340 and 4.5.596 SBF files, you'll want the second one, this is stock Gingerbread.

Since you don't want root, you can do it either way. Either the way I linked you to, which is one step to stock/unrooted GB, or the way Cory linked you to, which is stock Froyo, then download the OTA. Each will get you there.. :)

Yes so just let the Market re-download your paid ones for free...Nothing on your sd card will be touched.
