Post [Q] How do i downgrade from 4.3 Honami rom?

Hi,

As above, how do i downgrade from 4.3 to 4.22 android? I was on 4.22 Honami rom. I then upgraded to 4.3 honami rom using recovery to flash the new firmware. I have realised that i have lost root access so i want to go back to 4.22 for the time being.

I have read about losing IMEI etc by downgrading so if someone can guide me to the safest method to get back on to 4.22.

This is my first post in a long while so be gentle. If this thread has been opened before than please advise me to it so i can close this one.

Thanks again and look forward to hearing from you lot.

Cheers

Read the forum rules, do not post questions in general section.

Download a FTF file that you want and flash it with flashtool, never lost my imei number, but I was just using stocks roms.

Thanks for the reply. Wanted to remove the question tag at beginning but dont know how to.

So if i just download 257 firmware and flash it i will be fine?

I have done it twice, with no issues. Take a nandroid type backup if you are concerned, so you can restore back as it was

not sure if you have reverted yet, but I have root on 4.3


Used SEUS to flash to latest stock FW. (4.3)

Then unlocked bootloader, and flashed CWM using this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2588331

Then flashed the latest SuperSU via CWM, and successfully obtained root.

Can you verify and repost the link, it goes nowhere.
