Downgrade Android M back to L

Hi,

 

Update my phone some weeks ago to Android M. Is there an "easy" way to downgrade back to Android L?

 

Android M update on Xperia is a major disappointment.

Battery drains super fast, loss of LTE data connection, Google keyboard keeps changing language after reboot,

music audio muting does not function correctly, etc... etc...

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

I have tried to do follow these instructions to downgrade to Lollipop - but there is no way to get hold of the Lollipop firmware, I can only get the latest firmware, i.e. Marshmallow (23.5.A.0.575).

So where can I find the Lollipop firmware (10.6.A.0.454) with XperiFirm??

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

Hi everyone, will be using the following guide to help a friend who has a Z3 and made the mistake of upgarding to Marshmallow. He wants to go back to Lollipop. Here is a link to the guide :- http://www.xperiablog.net/2015/03/17/guide-to-installing-xperia-lollipop-using-xperifirm-and-flashto...

Would be very grateful please to know if any forum member has used this method and it's been a success. Just to add that I have never done this before and am hoping it's relatively straightforward !

Thanks Slightly smiling Face
