At the top of the Forums section in Samsung Epic is a title of Roms/Hacks for the Epic.
The first post is How to Factory Restore. Follow these easy to use directions to revert to 2.1.
And don't forget to push the Thanks button to those that help you.

Are you rooted? If so you can use Titanium Backup or MyBackup. If not, I'm not aware of any way to backup application data unfortunately.

The first post tells you how to do this using Odin. I did it a few weeks ago because the leaked 2.2 was garbage in my opinion.
I believe this will wipe your phone, but the Market saves your apps (free and purchased) for redownload and if your contacts are in Exchange or Gmail... you shouldn't lose anything.
It took all of 5 minutes to reload 2.1 using the instructions in the above post. You need a Windows machine.
Edit: the link doesn't work. Go to the "Epic 4G ROMs/Hacks" thread at the very top of the Epic 4G Forum.

Samsung's response about going back to 2.1
Samsung's response via Twitter...
Samsung has not released an official 2.2 for the Epic. Users who have received
2.2 aren't using an official update from Samsung, and unfortunately we have no means of reinstalling the official DI18 Eclair software without having the phone sent to our service center for a reflash.
Say it ain't so

Once your on a higher OS like the leaked version of Froyo the only way to return to a lower version of OS is to use Odin to restore back to it by use of what they call a ".tar" file or image of the official ROM.

Quick question fellas.. I want to roll back to 2.1 for the OTA update thats should come soon. Im currently running the [ROM] TrulyEpic Rebirth v1.5 AC Edition. Does this mean, im rooted or hacked and won't allow me, to follow the odin stairway to eclair?

Seems I found my answer.
"- I have DK28 Froyo 2.2 installed will I be able to still get the official update when its released? Yes, either we will provide an update method directly from whatever version of Froyo your running (leaked stock/custom) or you can use Odin and the method found in the [How to] Factory Restore (or Fix a Bricked Phone) section to restore stock Eclair 2.1 (DI18) and receive the OTA update."

Revert back to 2.1 while on official 2.2?
I upgraded my Epic to Froyo manually when the firmware was available on the samsung website. The firmware is extremely buggy, and I'm getting tired of it. The final straw is when I tried to shoot a video this weekend and it said that the video camera failed.
Can I go back to 2.1 while they fix these bugs? My phone is also rooted. Thanks!
