    How do you correctly downgrade OS from 2142 back to 1925.
    Can you do a full backup so you don't lose any data?

    2142 is a horrible "upgrade" from the 1925

    odd, i was actually about to start a thread about how amazingly few issues I've seen with this leak...

    normally, for weeks after a leak this forum is flooded with issues, but this one I've seen a fraction of the normal complaints... I'm like, has anyone really installed this thing? lol jk...

    but seriously, sorry to hear about your issues, what specifically is acting up for you, maybe someone smarter than me than help you so u dont have to downgrade

    I have successfully downgraded my Z30 back to 1925. Just do a full backup in Link, download the 1925 autoloader and run it. After that just restore your data with Link.

    What problems have you both experienced? Some quite serious issues were resolved in the latest update.

    For myself it was purely battery life. Both ran fine on my Z30 however, battery life was better for me running 1925 with the 1926 radio.
    My Q10 runs just fine on the newer one though.

    Did you try downgrading just the radio file to 1926?

    No, I didn't. If I would have had any other problems with 1925, I would have tried just that. There was absolutely no difference between the two for me except battery life, so it made sense to revert back.

    Revert back? You do realize that a lot of the improvements were internal? Smh

    Yes, revert back. Like I said, there was absolutely no difference between to two for me but battery life. These "internal improvements" that you refer to may be there, but they didn't affect me whatsoever. Therefore, for the simple fact of better battery life, which is crucial for me, I did revert back.

    Cmon man. We all know, no one starts threads about something positive. It's about horrible upgrades.

    2141 has been the best OS UPGRADE so far. Bar none.

    2142 - battery life horrible draining with no use, certain android apps won't work
    1925 - excellent life android apps work the best here.
    I performed a back up on my z10 previously but it said the back up file was not compatible with the OS

    Come to think of it, I used a backup that I had made before I upgraded to 2142. I didn't make one with 2142 as not much changed on my phone to warrant another 1hr+ backup. If you have an older backup file from 1925, try that.

    Biggest difference 1925 and now: my Z10 is running MUCH cooler. 1925 was a nice pocket warmer in Winter but not anymore

    I am curious to know whether this would have resolved your issue but we'll never know unless someone with similar problems is willing to try.

    I've never ran leaked versions of BlackBerry OS so have no experience with 10.2.1.1925.

    I know 10.2.1 is a huge improvement over 10.2, probably what 10.2 should have been (those hub issues were nasty).

    I thought I seen a thread about this, but I'm not sure if someone has tried it. I always install the latest leaks, and have no problems doing so. I may give the 1926 radio a shot on the new OS for something to do. I'll keep you posted if I do.

    One common problem people run across is trying to restore a backup file from your latest OS to an earlier version,e.g. install 2142 create backup downgrade OS to 1925 and try to restore the 2142 backup. Probably won't work, because the backup file has a later OS number than the OS on the phone and it will give the not compatible error.

    agreed.. that's why i'm saying with other leaks, I've seen a lot more people claiming or experiencing "horrible upgrades" and starting threads... but with this one I HAVEN'T seen it... thus, telling me it's one of the smoothest OS out there...

    just installed today myself, and have had zero issues... zero.. it's noticably snappier too, and i didn't do autoloader, so not just saying that lol...

    I've had a few problems myself on the latest in compare to 1925. Always official. In the latest I had a few black hub. It gets lost till a reboot occurs. Some sluggish behaviour also here and there. But none related to battery life which I think is better than 1925.
    Hope though the other problems get fix in next update.
