    The only way to is to flash a WP8 ROM on the phone. There is no other way to do it. This means using other software tools.

    Any particular reason why you want to do this?

    If the Nokia Software Recovery tool has WP8.1 as the latest OS to be installed on your phone, then I guess you cannot go back. Earlier on WP8 was available for recovery using the NSR tool so it could be done.

    They said they have the official update and NSRT will only update to the latest version of the OS only. There is no way to select what version you want to install. So that leaves flashing a ROM as the only option.
