Donwgarde Lumia 625 8.1 to 8.0


WPCentral Question


I have a Lumia 625 that updated to 8.1, that is not a Preview of 8.1
Does anybody know if i can downgrade the same way like preview of 8.1?

There is a way but it is a fairly lengthy process and if I wouldn't recommend it if you are not too tech savy.

Also involves obtaining a CV version of the ROM (or your preferred carrier version) containing the Lumia Black Firmware and flashing that onto your device.

The versions that you will get from Navifirm (if updated) or via the care suite or nokia recovery tool is Lumia Cyan since that is now available for your phone.

Do you have any guide for this type of downgrade.
I'm testing with a MDM and WP8.1 is not officially supported so my only hope is to downgrade so i can get support.
