I don't know that you can downgrade to 1.00, but you wouldn't want to anyway. With the original DeathAdder Black I had, which shipped on 1.00, 1.01 fixed some tracking issues.
I want to point out though, that I haven't had any issues with the tracking above 450 DPI, and I typically run at 1800 DPI in games anyway (with sensitivity at 1 in the game) which seems to track best. That was also on a smooth white mouse pad, something darker or more textured tends to work better with optical mice.
I do wonder if the 4G DeathAdder will perform better - I wouldn't be so sure, because it seems that most mice just keep getting worse these days. Even the newer 3090 mice don't seem to track as well as the 3888 in the DeathAdder. They all seem to fail at high speeds. My Savu did seem to do well at medium speeds and handled 1000Hz better than the DeathAdder does, but I don't like going above 500Hz anyway.
3500 DPI seems better on this than 4000 DPI on the Savu, but that's much higher than anyone should need.
