Hi everyone, I was wondering if it is possible to downgrade my Moto X from AT&T running on 4.4.2 down to 4.2.2?

There's a very big risk of bricking your phone if you downgrade. Either right away, or by accidentally taking an ota after.

Some say there are ways to downgrade, but most here will just simply say... No. You can't unfortunately.

Again, you can research how to supposedly do it "safely".... but even following those directions, mistakes can happen, and boom. Paperweight.

Plus ... there's no real reason to. That I can see.

Also, questions go in the Q&A section. For future reference.

Ok thank you very much for your response. Oh man :/ well the thing is that I was wanting to root my phone but it seems like
there isn't a way to do this unless the phone was downgraded.
