Going back to 3.8.0 from 3.11.0

Recently I updated Kobo Touch 3 (N905B) from 3.8.0 to 3.11.0. Ever since I updated, reader (screen and everything) freezes at irregular intervals - sometimes after 20 pages, sometimes after 2 pages. It wakes up by itself after a minute or so. Very annoying! Since the same thing happened with my girlfriend's Kobo (same model), I suspect this is a bug in the firmware. Can I go back to an earlier version?
Any help will be appreciated.

Why not try 3.12.1?

Perform a factory reset.

Bypass the registration process.

Download the version of the firmware that you want from the following post:

Manually install the firmware.

According to

3.11.0 is the latest release for Mark 3.

Am I missing something?

You are not missing anything. I just didn't notice that 3.12.1 was not available for older hardware.
