Hi mate ,


If you are in stock 4.3 you cant downgrade to stock 4.2.2 (yet) . For now is not possible to downgrade bootloaders
Read before doing
Search before asking
Don’t just say thanks if the information was useful, hit thanks too……

Omega one of the last good roms for the I9500 keep it alive , DONATE , your phone will thank you ....

if you updated to stock 4.3, you most likely have KNOX, with that, it is impossible to downgrade, i think only the i9505 can downgrade (correct me if i'm wrong)

I would upgrade to 4.4.2, it's way better.
