yesterday I had to flash GPE because I tried to downgrade my stock 4.4.3 back to 4.3 (jelly bean). then I failed to downgrade and stuck with a bootloop .. later I flashed GPE rom with flashboot and now I have GPE 4.4.4 atm (xt-1032)

my question is can I go back to stock kitkat by flashing a rom with a custom recovery (TWARP or CWM) ? or should I have to convert the file format back to f2fs from ext4 before flashing another rom???

really appreciate any help...

thanks for the help lost, really appreciate it .. I have few questions,

have you tried converting file system with TWRP ? if so what is the recommended version ?


another question, can I just go back to GPE 4.2.2 by flashing with fastboot ? if so , should I first need to wipe the system with the recovery before the downgrade ?

Version 2.7 (or newer):

You can just flash a fastboot Image (follow guide and run all commands or run included .bat if there is one) - nothing needs to be done in recovery.
