Help downdating to vodafone froyo 2.1


Jul 14, 2011
hi guys so I flashed my phone to ginger bread and it was a vodafone firmware before so basically now I can't update using kies anymore. Says this version cannot be updated.how do I downgrade to vodafone cause i tried using odin but the firmware is a one package so I think I did oit right but there are no tutorials and the phone starts up but does not work only thing it can do is receive phone calls lol.oh and lock.and it gives me a error like the force close one everytime and the screen is black behind it and when i close the error it pops right back up again. I used the firmware from sam firmware please help.
Update : So now when i try to update it to the vodafone 2.1 it flashes installs then while reseting stays blank and doesnt recover. I therefore have to flash it again back to Gingerbread. Any suggestions as my phone contract is vodacom and they are partnered with vodafone so if i need to take the phone in and its not branded with the vodafone logo in the loading screen they will probably charge me. Plus i cant update this version. PLLEASEEE HELP!!!!
