In theory you can downgrade the firmware with an older bundle. But why? This was never needed so far.

 

 

But if the disk really would fail during upgrade, it will be dead and needs to be replaced. You cannot up- or downgrade a dead drive.

 

 

So the only "rollback" is to have a backup, just in case.


Hope this helps!
