    My Epic 4G received the Gingerbread update from Sprint this past week.

    I'm not a fan and wish to go back to 2.2.1.

    Sprint "officially" says that this is not possible.

    Anybody know of any workarounds to get back to a working version of Android for this phone?

    TIA.

    Use procedure #1

    WARNING YOULL LOSE ALL DATA AND DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK

    If you succeed which is more than likely to happen just ignore the OTA GB update

    Did the GB update, now the GPS is all hosed. I've had my Epic for over a year, so it came with Eclair. If I do a factory reset, will I be able to get a stock Froyo back on there?

    A factory reset from within the the Settings option, no.

    You will need to use a program called Odin and follow the process in the thread below. Use procedure #1 and follow the instructions. Any problems please post in that thread and we can handle it over there
