I now have a stable (so it seems) 4.4.4 load. My last problem is that I am only showing 12.55 gigs of space. I tried to clear caches, didn't work. Tried factory reset after that, didn't work.
I know this is an issue when upgrading but I didn't find any info on this for those that downgraded to K. All help is greatly appreciated as this is my daily driver.
