Re: How do I go back from Marshmallow to previous Lollipop

With Flashtool and previous FW u can get back to Lollipop ! That's the only way to do that ! and no problem on warranty, as far as I know ! So please, start your work at your own risk but remember to Wipe Data when u roll back Winking Face
