3GS slow on iOS6 and want to downgrade

Guys,

I have a 3GS. After upgrading to iOS6, it becomes very slow. I wonder if there's any way I can downgrade to iOS5. Please help!

Thanks.

Shaun

Thanks for reminding me how dumb I'm for upgrading.

What I really need now, is a way to go back to iOS5.

Only if you have shsh blobs saved for your phone for previous firmware versions.
Also you can go down to 4.1 since apple still signs that version for the 3GS.

The problem is, some apps don't support any iOS version older than 5.0.

I know. But for some its ok.
Still sucks that Apple is not allowing us any more to Downgrade if we want to stay on older firmware.
