It is bit tedious then, there is video on how to flash on the same thread I posted you earlier.

 

I only can simplify by saying that you can install Android 4.1 over Android 4.3 by flashing and that flashing tutorial is given in that above thread.

 

My recommendation is to wait for a bit, we may see Sony releasing an update soon in which issues raised by users are addressed.

Re: pls help,i want my 4.1 update back

as you might see there is some people that face speed problem after update

so i recommend you do factory reset or repair by SUS then think about downgrading

SUS will completly reinstall firmware..and you are sure thats a clean copy of firmware

but PCC try to find and repiar your problem...

 

i recommend to use SUS..SUS is software that built exactly for update and repair but PCC  is somekind of device manager

@ Danial-mach1
The firmware downloaded from SUS is same
as the software updated by pc companion
So how it will fix
Or the firmware in SUS is updated regularly like fixing bugs (I don't think so)
