Re: Why cant I go back to 4.1 android with the reset?
it did...but on the 1st start up I decided to upgrade it. Then "mail" for god knows what reason started to drain 25% of my battery.....now I reset the whole phone and the mail drainage disappeared. Although the system is the updated 4.4.2. Weird.

Re: Why can't I go back to 4.1 android with the reset?
Yeah, the way Android firmware updates work is by replacing the system files, so the "factory data reset" is kind of a misnomer: you'll erase your user data, but the OS version will never go backwards. The only way to downgrade is to unlock the device bootloader and manually install an old system image.
