    Angry uninstall 4.2.2 update

    Is there any way besides factory reset to uninstall the new update? It makes my Tab 2 10.1 run very slow. My son's Tab 2 7inch won't play some of the games now either. His was updated automatically and I used Kies for mine.

    Well I guess a factory reset is only going to reset my device settings not my software.

    Try rebooting into recovery and clearing cache.
    Here is how: [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.

    Do I need to do a backup of my Tab first?

    Nope. The cache from the prior ROM is most likely interfering with the new one.

    I tried clearing the cache but get an error message, and the tab reboots.
    The final straw broke....4.2.2 killed my ability to stream to my tv's!!!!
    I'm going to revert to factory settings, Hate to lose alot of stuff but im fed up with 4.2.2

    My tab2 has slowed down considerably since the update not to mention the restarting every time I shut it down. I used to enjoy using it but not so much now .If samsung doesn't do something quick I just may jump ship and head the apple way.

    Go to settings
    Then go to application manager
    Find the application whose updates you want to uninstall
    Done!

    Did anyone actually read the question originally posted?
    Is there a way to remove the 4.2.2 update? I think the update writes to the factory system image as well, so a factory reset would only refresh the update and delete all user files, apps, etc. Is this correct?
    I'm trying to root my device (Galaxy Note 3, updated yesterday to 4.2.2) and all the tutorials I've read and seen work perfectly, don't include 4.2.2.

    your note 3 is only on 4.2.2? Mine is 4.3 and many are 4.4. But you can use kingo. Alot of people dont like it because its past history, but its safe to use now.
