You have to fastboot recovery.img first before downgrading to 184.108.40.206 Otherwise you will get "getprop("ro.build.asus.sku") == 'WW'" error.
220.127.116.11 upgrades recovery to v2.19. so you have to downgrade the recovery to 18.104.22.168. Here's the process to follow :
1) Download the recovery from
2) type this at fastboot :
"fastboot flash recovery 22.214.171.124_ww_recovery.img"
3)boot to recovery and sideload 126.96.36.199

I don't see an improvement on battery as mine was very humble even in the past, but at the same time also not any other problems.
Note that I no longer use flip cover, so I don't know about that.

There are other, unofficial techniques to do that one or 2 pages back, with links to how it can be done. Search for Ranking (1). :)

Choose Android under the operating systems, then you will see the Firmwares at the top of the list that shows up. Why Malaysia? Because it's in English so you guys can read it, and does not redirect to shop like Singapore.
My build is ASUS_TOOJ_WW_user_22.214.171.124_20141003_8008_release-keys-044000307_201407220024

Since this differs from operator to operator, I would suggest you to check their website how to set it up or take it to their shop.
You do not need instructions for this exact model. Most phones have same vocabulary.

18.104.22.168 through mobile. But now the battery draining too fast in normal mode as well as in idle mode. please help. Currently my mobile shows android version 4.4.2 and build number 22.214.171.124

That's why speaker sucks, so does camera flash, there's overheating of CPU, etc.
Because 1.15, 1.16 and 1.17 updates which fix all these issues are skipped.
Anyone with new phone, that hasn't updated anything yet, should go to Asus website, and in support and drivers find the full OS update for 126.96.36.199, and load that.
This full update contains all of the fixes of the previous OTA updates, it is a complete package.
Alternatively, you can download them all from here:
But please beware this folder only contains updates for WWE-Androis and WW SKU.
If you have a Chinese version, do NOT use these files.
Asus website on the other hand has all versions.
The 2 FOTA updates are incremental. They are not complete firmware and are only to be used if you have loaded full previous version.
