Default How to downgrade 4.3 to 4.1.1?

How can I upgrade from 4.3 to 4.1.1? Any effective method, not risky?

Crazy? Some people think walking down the street muttering to yourself is crazy. I'll tell you what crazy is: Crazy is walking down the street with half a cantaloupe on your head, saying: "I'm a hamster. I'm a hamster." That's crazy.

Really hard to brick these phones. Amazingly I have not yet.


What is your goal? Following my guide and stopping before the MH3 OTA step will get you to a virgin stock LJ2. Only difference it will have the 4.3 bootloader and there's nothing you can do about that.

Your phone will softbrick if it's not charged enough, or your pc takes a power hit, or you accidentally pull the USB cable out.

If Odin successfully completes your phone will be fine.
