    I have updated successfully to Marshmallow which is around 1.3gb…I was having no problem with the update…
    The biggest advantage is that hw decoding is at its best when playing with mx player and the only con is that the Dolby atmos background tweaking is not the best and loud…
    So I waited for the lenovo to update soon..
    So I got an ota update 5 days before around 16mb..
    After updating.. nothing was improved
    The biggest pros of the update is taken away that the hw decoding is simple and the same Dolby atmos…
    I was wondering whether installing this 1.3gb update will rollback my phone?
    Plz reply soon

Then some of the features of the previous firmware like smooth vedio playing etc were lost. How can i downgrade to the previous firmware? If i download this OTA file and do as per the instructions will it go back to the previous one, Or this OTA will work only when upgrading from build number A7000-a_S153_151127_ROW to build number A7000-a_S223_160405_ROW?
