    So I had to finally use my warranty for my S5 with T-mobile. I have the replacement but it came with Lollipop 5.1.1 and not Kitkat. I've started using Lollipop and it's a nightmare. I absolutely hate it and many of my apps are incompatible.

    Knowing this, is there an efficient and safe way to downgrade without tripping knox? I did some googling but find more information on 5.0 Lollipop. I'm surprised S5's got that update. I found a few vague threads mainly on 5.0 but nobody really mentioned success with 5.1.1.

    Take it to TMO and tell them you want KK on your phone because you don't like LP. Maybe they can reflash it for you if it's possible. A lot of carriers have incremented the bootloader, so reversion back to a previous OS isn't possible. I don't know if TMO has followed suit though.

    Or you can try the TMobile forum on XDA Forums and see if anyone has an installable KK ROM for the S5.

    What a shame. T-mobile is pretty anal about everything, so I highly doubt it. I will post on XDA as well, thank you.
