Is there something wrong with Cyanogenmod?

What you want is the stock version of android Samsung put on the phone, there is no revert as it was deleted when you put cyanogen. As you dont seem to have a copy I would go to Samsung support site or you will have to trust another source on the net and download it there. This would be another great community resource for your phone

If he had a nandroid backup of the previous rom, that would work too right? – Power-Inside Dec 29 '11 at 13:01
Yes many things are not working properly. 1. Bluetooth 2. When radio on bluetooth becomes on. 3. EDGE disconnect now and then 4. Consequent video file download in opera mini replaces the previous file etc etc. Thank you for the community link. But can you please dictate me what I need to do specifically to get 2.1 in my device? – eagleye Dec 29 '11 at 13:40
The problems you have described here sound fixable, cyanogen is a high quality and widely used rom with many advantages over the stock roms samsung makes, try downloading the latest one for your model and installing it again. If your problems are still there address them one by one, otherwise like i said you will have to research where to get the stock rom again most likely there is a samsung support that can help you. – imp Dec 29 '11 at 14:00
