I have been on these forums for a while now, and I haven't seen anyone mention this method of de-updating minecraft.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Warning!: This will cause a "Rollback" which deletes some of your work!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.Type %appdata% and go to roaming.
2.Go to your bin.
3.Right-Click you Minecraft.jar and go to "Properties".
4.Go to the "Restore Previous Version" tab.
5.Select the first Minecraft Version then click restore. WARNING: Look at the date of the version you are restoring! If it's to far back (Like 30 days back), then you will lose all your work between the two time periods!

AGAIN, THIS MAY CAUSE A HUGE AMOUNT OF WORK LOST, OR JUST A FEW BLOCKS REMOVED, CHECK THE DATE BEFORE YOU RESTORE!

Note:If you restore a version, you cannot get your "old" one back.

DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!

Note2:I am not sure, but if you backup your saves, then restore, then use your back-up-ed saves, you may not lose any work. I have not tested this yet.

I hope this helped!

Figured this out a while back, but most people want to go back to versions they DIDN'T have...

Well, I made this mainly because in the modding forums, I kept on seeing people asking for how they de-updated their minecraft so they could use an outdated mod. I have no idea, at all, how to go back to a verion that they didn't have though...

This is a vista/windows7 feature where it would automatically backup certain parts of your computer whenever you perform a windows update so that if problems occur, it can rollback to a previous version. These snapshots do take up a lot of hard disk space.

It backs up stuff on your computer so when you update it, if something goes wrong, it can roll it back.
If I'm understanding correctly. If I'm wrong, sorry-- I don't use Windows.

Just a note - if you dont seem to have the "Restore Previous Version" tab, then you could try going into the backup folder where you'll find a copy of "bin"(as well as "saves"), which will have the minecraft.jar file from the version you downloaded in the first place (i.e. I downloaded 1.2.5 originally, therefore I had the 1.2.5 file).

I was trying to de-upload 1.3.1 (becasue it doesn't have mod API), so I renamed the 1.3.1 bin file to "bin131", meaning there was no longer a bin directory in .minecraft, then copied bin(1.2.5) into it from backup, overriding the updated bin file and restoring 1.2.5.

Obviously, if you originally got an earlier version of Minecraft (i.e. not the version before your current update), then that will be the version in the backup directory.(unless it's not, i'm not all to certain if that changes...?)
