I used to be very satisfied with my phone until the latest software update.
How can I remove the latest firmware without losing my data, settings, apps, etc.?
I want to only remove the firmware update.

Apps that don't work anymore (such as calendar: it stopped synchronising and stopped displaying notifications), worse graphics, slower response, battery runs out quicker, ...
If I get text messages there is also no notification.
In short: worse user experience.

nainu1989, thanks for the input.
I'll give it a try; it says I'm about to lose my personal data, which I hope to solve with a back-up.
I hope the phone can be reset to the previous version of the smartphone software, and that I can restore my personal data. I don't like to waste time on these kind of issues, so this will definitely influence my buying behaviour towards Sony.

It didn't work at all: I keep getting the latest firmware!
I want to get rid of the latest firmware, and keep on using the previous -better!- version!

I contacted Sony support by phone...
It seems you cannot go back to an earlier version.
I also lost all my installed apps in the process: when I wanted to do a backup (I had backed up everything) apparently a lot of software and data isn't backed up at all!
No more Sony for me, that's for sure!
