How would you revert a mod from a newer version to an older version
Like from a 1.10 Mod to a 1.7.10 Mod, would it be almost doing the same step as updating them, but in reverse?

Would be great to receive quick a response please

There are all kinds of changes involved in this process such as changing methods back to their old mappings. You may lose some functionalities by having to use an older version of Forge. You'll also have to get rid of the JSON models and use the code equivalent (not sure exactly how this is done since I started modding with 1.8). It's an annoying process and usually developers just tell their users to update since I'm pretty sure the general developer view is that it's outdated and needs to be left in the past.

Thank you for the reply, but would it be easier if the so called mod was simple. Do you by chance know any source that shows or has a good example of the old mapping?

When I'm porting, I just use the code of the original version with the mappings for the one I'm porting to and I look in the classes the missing methods are calling for similar signatures with similar names. I imagine this is harder for backporting and even harder for large version differences.
