Kitkat update on Lenovo S650 how to downgrade? :(

2015-01-08, 7:59 AM
So I just recently upgrade my Lenovo S650 to Android 4.4.2 Kitkat and I have some problems with it. Firstly, the battery drains too fast compared to jelly bean. And some of my apps aren't working. another problem is that when I download photos from the internet, it doesn't get sent to my gallery. I had to reboot every so often if I want to see the recently downloaded picture so I decided that I'll need to downgrade my phone from kitkat to jelly bean. is there any way to do this? or maybe an alternative to downgrading my phone? if there is, thanks in advance.

Does my phone have to be rooted to use custom ROMS like that? and mine isn't Lenovo S820. It's S650.

Hi kairumasaki

 

If you want to downgrade your S650 to Android 4.2 just follow message 8 of https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/K-S-and-Vibe-Series/Lenove-S650-sound-issue/m-p/1413747#M2950 and install the S116 firmware.

S116 is the last/latest official S650 Android 4.2 firmware.

 

Please take your time to read the instructions !

Don't need to say that you're doing this at your own risk.

 

Let me know how it goes.

Thanks. I'll go to a repair service shop and tell the problem. I'm not really much of a tech wiz to do the downgrading myself.
