    Default HATING Kitkat already...how do I undo?

    Need to get some help here - please know in advance I am NOT tech savvy at all when replying with suggestions/advice.

    I have been putting-off the Kitkat update as long as possible...but had some phone 'downtime' today and finally updated. I hate it already! I have MANY issues/dislikes - I won't list them - but suffice to say I want to UNDO this update and go back to what I had ASAP.

    Can someone please walk me through this process? And again, I am a tech pre-schooler, so I don't even begin to understand things like "rooting" etc.....

    Thanks in advance

    No way to go back... Short of getting another phone and not taking the update..

    You've Been Kitkatted!

    I proposed adding a new verb to the English language:

    kitkat - The action of a corporation, government or other institution of upgrading a system
    so that the users of the system lose funtionality, configurability, or features, or
    so that the users are adversly affected by changes to the system without giving the users
    any way to opt out of the changes.

    I hope the good folks at the Oxford Dictionary of the English Language are following this.

    I would not suggest you do that. I don't think there is a root method for the latest update.
