Hi there, I need to downgrade from 4.3 (10.4.1.B.0.101) to any Europe 4.2.2 with recovery + rooted stock firmware, becouse I want to flash this firmware : http://forum.xda-developers.com/xper...ock-0-t2759467

I have locked bootloader and no recovery and root on my 4.3, that's the main problem why I need to downgrade to 4.2 as well I have locked BL and I don't want to unlock it.

Thanks in advice.

(have searched before posting this thread, so don't suggest me to use search, 'cause I've found only useless things. I need EUROPE, not with china language and for unlocked bl..)

To downgrade, you will need to flash an FTF. You will not find an FTF that is prerooted/has a custom recovery. FTF files are unmodified stock firmware only.

You will need to flash a stock FTF with Flashtool, root and flash the dual recovery yourself (or use the unrooted install method for XZDualRecovery).

Search in the general section for a 4.2.2 FTF. There are many available. The region does not matter if you're going to immediately flash a different rom anyway.

Please point out where I said you needed CWM to flash an FTF. You use Flashtool.

1. Download a 4.2.2 FTF - Here
2. Flash with Flashtool - Download
3. Install XZDualRecovery using the unrooted method.
4. Flash the rom mentioned in your original post.

All this information is readily available in the forums, so a quick search should help if you're having further problems.
