please anyone let me know how to downgrade galaxy S4 from lollopop to kitkat
below average, i have so many problems with this is ridiculous, and the update was forced on me. i cannot change lay out, i cannot change lock screen picture, wifi won't work, it broke many of my apps. there is nothing i like about it.
I have an unlocked at&t galaxy s4 sgh-i337 but i live in europe, can I still receive the lollipop update?
Awful update, phone so slow and crashes every five mins. Apps not working correctly, very bad update.

I tried to do the update yesterday. It finally downloaded and then failed the install. It is making me wait 24 hours before attempting again.
I will not update to the apple-esque white i-sore screens.
I prefer black on my oled panel and value battery life more than a iOS looking phone.
I'll wait till its possible to add 3rd party dark themes before I turn to 5.0
Kitkat for me until things change.
Lollipop 5.0 on S4 sucks hard. The phone is working slow, it has a lot of bugs, the color scheme cannot be changed if the phone is not rooted. I will downgrade to 4.4.2.

There are some major concerns, regarding Galaxy S4 that needs to be addressed!
I do own a Galaxy S4 (I9505). Got that Lollipop 5.0.1 upgrade about two weeks ago. And noticed quite few issues:
1) Storage. It says when you upgrade, that it should shrink the OS and that this update should save you 1-2 GB of storage. Tho it does not. It actualy take about that much more than Kitkat.
2) Battery Life. I noticed that battery life dropped about 20-25%. (about 1/5 to 1/4 of what it use to be.) I would say it is due to more demanding apps. Like dial screen and text screens now being white and bright consumes a lot more energy than previouse version that was black.
3) WIFI!!! OMG, this is the most annoying issue ever! And no one is up to fix it. It takes at least 5 times longer to connect to wifi, wifi sometimes drops and etc. Now I just hate using wifi. Before, I was just turning it on/off, to save time and battery life..
To wrap up - I would not recommend to upgrade to lollipop 5.0.1 untill these problems would be fixed. Trust me.
Does anyone know when GT-I9505 will get a Lollipop update? I feel like this is now the only version of S4 not promoted to Lollipop.
