I have downloaded the Nokia Software Update utility in attempts to try that to downgrade my software back to just WP8, but when it says "Plug in your phone" it doesn't recognize my phone (likely because its a samsung, not a nokia). I have called Samsung and even went to the Samsung booth in Bestbuy whom both have stated that I will need to "send my phone in to samsung to reflash the rom". That seems excessive.
Is there anyone that can help me with reinstalling WP8 back onto my device? I am fine with waiting until the 8.1 update comes out officially.
I could do a long explanation but I keep it short , NO there is no way for you to return to stock wp8.
this will only happen when someone leaks a ROM for your phone.
and a Tip: Don't ever use other then Samsung wp software for your phone (flasher, firmware , drivers ) because it could render your phone in a paperweight.
