As somebody has already replied earlier, you can NOT go back, i.e. your 
Zope 2.8.4 ZODB is NOT going to work with 2.7.8.

I don't think so. Plone 2.1 targets Zope 2.7 and 2.8. At the time of 
the 2.1(.0) release Zope 2.7 was the Zope du jour and we are not going 
to change this in a minor release.
