Glad to help, but I will warn you that the device support center I dealt with told me they CANNOT go back to 2.3.x after they upgrade the phone to 4.x. So make sure you want to have them make the attempt. I'm pleased SO FAR, but YMMV! In my mind, if I start having problems again, I'm probably going to look into CM9 or CM10.
They lied. Return-to-stock packages for both UCKH7 and UCKK6 are available on XDA, for example, and have been since within a week after each update went live.
BTW, you yourself can get the same software that the device support centers use - it's called "Odin" and is pretty easy to find. You can find Odin-flashable firmware packages for every AT&T firmware release also.
That said, you're probably going to have problems with UCLE5. Everything I've heard indicates that it's a very poor update. You're far better off with ported I9100 firmware or CM9. (CM10 is still a bit rough around the edges, even though I use it as my daily driver it is definitely not for everyone... That said, UCLE5 is so awful that you're probably better off with CM10...)
