git branch roll back to previous commits

I have got two branches (master and secondary) at most recent commit. I need the older commit ed state ( 2 unit backward) and so want my secondary branch to move back two commits.

How do I do it?

  • How are git branches imported into mercurial with hg convert?
  • Branch target prediction in conjunction with branch prediction?
  • git: how to move committed changes from master to branch?
  • git branch merging details
  • Feature branch based on master (without checking out master)
  • branch with no common ancesters
  • Can't remove from git nonexistent file
  • git post-receive hook not running
  • Terminology used by Git
  • Github Desktop: “Update from <branch>” button
  • Git credential helper doesn't work
  • git cherry-pick and merge by ignoring EOL changes
  • One Solution collect form web for “git branch roll back to previous commits”

    git branch -f secondary secondary~2

    This will only change the commit which the branch references and does not interact with the worktree. as such it’s a bit safer than going the git reset route. It will not work if the branch is currently checked out, but this is easily solved by switching to another branch, creating a temporary branch, or detaching HEAD (git checkout HEAD^{}). Another possibility would be to use git checkout -B secondary secondary~2, but this will change your worktree.

    don’t do this, if your secondary branch was already pushed and was publicly available
