It's the same as upgrading...just installed the 4.6 OS, and uninstall the 5.0 from your computer so it sees the downgrade.

I keep getting an error when trying to downgrade that the apploader will not work with my devices software 5.0.191. Do I need to have DDM 5.0 or will DDM 4.6 work to downgrade? Downloading 5.0 now so I may answer my own question.

Never mind yes you need DDM5.0 to downgrade from 5.0. Just letting you know that the search works in the forum.

Help. Trying to downgrade from 5.0.0.190 to 4.6.0.301.

Have tried numerous methods but will not load.
ANY suggestions? THANKS
