And your case is closed (finished 1 yr probation... 6 mos ago) Could you end up somehow with an additional probation period or jail time somehow? Felony knocked to MSD by plea negotiation..adjudicated
I know about the 24 mo window and Im still 6 mos inside it!
If your plea is vacated, your are back to facing the felony charge(s) you originally where facing. Also, if you were in custody, the judge could place you back in custody and set the bond accordingly. I have seen this done. The judge has the power go back to the status quo ante (the way things were before the plea was entered). So be careful what you wish for.

When you open your case back up through post-conviction relief then everything starts over from the beginning. Yes, that means your deal is out the window and you could get a more severe sentence than you originally got. If you are talking about a felony knocked down to a misdemeanor, then you also risk it going back up to a felony. Lots of things to consider here. You should sit down with an attorney that handles post-conviction cases to see if its worth it. Just because you have a basis for post-conviction relief doesn't necessarily mean you should do it. I hope this was helpful. Good luck.

If you successfully completed probation and the case is closed nothing else can happen to you. But if you withdrew the plea AFTER you finished your probation then your case starts over. It is unlikely you would go to jail, but you could very likely end up on probation again. But if you withdrew your plea because you were innocent it may be worth the risk. Also, if the felony was reduced to a misdemeanor as part of the plea, you will have to deal with it as a felony again. And I don't know of any 24 month window that would apply to you.
