    Hello guys! First of all sorry for my English, it's quite bad... I have a small problem, wich is really big for me. Today morning my phone said there is a 6mb update, and I started to download it. Unfortunatly it was 600 mb, and It upgraded my phone to 5.0.2. So the problem is I really really hate that system. Really hate. Really. I can't accept it, and It also looks really bad. I want my 4.4.4 back.. So my question is, how can I get it back? Because I really like the KitKat Version, and that one just gives me cancer...

    Thanks!

    A OnePlus One user.

    Backup apps and contacts. Download cm11s zip. Do factory reset and advanced->wipe system in recovery. Flash the cm11s zip. Reboot.

    He probably did the OTA install, so he can't go back with the Cyanogen recovery.

    Can i ask how u used to backup apps?? Because everytime i flash i lost them but i dont know how to backup them. Do u use titanium?

    Anyway the factory recovery cant be done so u might flash it with the custom recovery using the zip downloaded.

    You will need root access. Enable them in developer options or flash supersu.
    Then use either titanium backup or helium.
    I use helium.

    Many thanks guys, for the fast replies, but I'm a bit scared.. Can it broke my system for forever if I do it wrong? I love this little stuff, but I just can't accept that system..

    As far as my knowledge goes, if you mess something up with /system partiton, you can still access fastboot mode, so nothing to worry about....

    System can be brought back easily by flashing the ROM zip once. But do not reboot after you have wiped the system. Reboot only after flashing the zip(actually you can just go back into recovery even if you reboot lol).
    Just make sure the zip file is in internal storage.

    Because I hate the design of it, and I hate how it's working. I'm just not likeing it.. The last one was more stable, and faster, and also looks much better.

    Whereas liking design is purely a subjective thing to do, I can't agree about lollipop being slower and less stable... There's much improvement over those things, and I find it to be a drastically better user experience overall
