I've been trying to downgrade from 5.51 to 5.22/23 using the link from VDSL Performance & Tuning, the Fritz Downgrading Guide and from reading some forum posts here.

My issue is that no matter what firmware i use i am being prompted after the update has failed saying that the firmware is older than what is currently in use.  Do i need to modify the .image file before trying to update?

cjmchch: It can't be done.


for the most part, this. AVM upgraded the bootloader, it could be manually downgraded, but clearly rather.. risky...


give the 5.23 firmware a try, i have heard some recent success storys with it. (its 5.22 with the patch for the security flaw)

AVM sent me a link (here) to downgrade my 7390 back to version 5.23 for the purposes of restoring SMB which they removed with 6.01. So this is an officially sanctioned downgrade. I haven't tried it yet but see no reason why it shouldn't work.

How about upgrade to 6.xx and then downgrade to 5.23?

Hmm, where's the edit button gone?

I tried the downgrade from 6.03 (I think that's what I'm on) to 5.23 and it wouldn't let me. Hmmm odd.

I was able to downgrade my Fritz 7340 from 6.01 to 5.23, glad I was cheap and got the low cost option :P

Does 6.06 fix the problems you have with 6.03?
