Are you on an unlocked bootloader? If not, you cannot downgrade.

You can't downgrade even with an unlocked bootloader. Just tried this morning and got a security downgrade error or somesuch.

He's probably getting a flash failed error. Easiest way to fix that is just to successfully flash something simple like the logo.

fastboot flash logo logo.bin

You CAN flash back to JB from KK if you have an unlocked bootloader using RSD, I've done it a few times when I tried KK.


I used VRZ_XT907_9.8.1Q-94-1_CFC.xml and removed these lines.

Quote:
<step var="max-download-size" operation="getvar"/>

<step var="fb_mode_set" operation="oem"/>

<step operation="flash" MD5="FB3D9083F1B5890BBF2FA8617D31A70A" filename="gpt_main0.bin" partition="partition"/>

<step operation="flash" partition="tz" filename="tz.mbn" MD5="474F31095C8146D1F86D0E5CE72B878F" />
Quick Edit: These two posts helped me

How did you know which lines were safe to omit and which to keep?
I tried just flashing system.img by itself, apparently that alone was not enough for it to boot.
