Help!
I'm on CM11 (latest nightlies) and there's a lot of bug here
so I wondered If I can flash CM10.1.3 (stable) via TWRP Recovery while i'm on CM11 is possible?

(Flash CM10.1 over CM11)

Thanks in advance

Possible Yes, advisable No.

You're likely to come across loads of app crashes or other problems if you flash CM10 over CM11. It's best to backup apps with Titanium backup Pro, and your SMS etc with SMS Backup. Makes sure contacts are synced to google as well.

If you're having problems with nightlies flash the SNAPSHOT version, That is the most stable out of CM11.

Which issues are you having, I am on CM11 and not had any real issues?

What If I wipe my data and reinstall all the apps?

P.s. I'm having the Camera issue, often showed up " Can't connect to the camera" Which didn't happen on Touchwiz Rom

Yes, that will be fine. What I was referring to that is not advisable is a non-clean flash (keeping data).

I have had the Camera issue on various nightlies and needed reboot. There is a app in store that enables you to fix camera when you get this error which is better then rebooting device.

As far as I remember I didnt have the camera issue on CM11 Snapshot.

Thanks! But what android version of CM10.1 is ?
I heard that it's 4.2.2
is it okay to flash while i'm on 4.4.2? (No IMEI lost issue or hard brick?)

Thanks again

The no IMEI/brick etc are caused (afaik) by n00bs flashing wrong device rom or corrupt archives or flashing is interrupted etc.

Just wipe device and flash new rom in recovery, You should be fine.
