Any specific reason  for downgrading ? 2.6.35 is what patches are provided for and is fully supported.

If you downgrade you will have to repatch the files.

Reason to use 2.6.28.y is based on the product page link as below suggest to do so and we are blindly following it as text book.

We try with the 2.6.35 hoping the same patches supports.
Thanks,
