Re: How to downgrade my Xperia e dual

Unfortunately you can not go back to previous version. I recommend you to do a repair of the phone software via Sony PC Companion if the phone is slow:

Click on this link to get Sony PC companion:

http://www.sonymobile.com/gb/tools/pc-companion/

Start PC companion, start "Support Zone", start "Update phone software" and click on "Repair".

Follow the on-screen instructions.

Try to root your device first, it's safe and you can go back to original by doing repair with PC Companion. With root privileges, you can freeze unuseful stuff. Install System Tuner for example, you can decide which services start at boot !

No u cananot go back to the old software if u repair it with the sony pc companion or Sony update service. Repairing may fix the lagy performance, i said it MIGHT be helpful in that just.
