I'm considering buying a Nokia Lumia 730 (or 830), but it comes with 8.1 preinstalled, while I'd like to be using WP8 instead.
Is there any way I could downgrade?
All the solutions I could find on the Internet apply to the devices updated OTA.
I can also see the similar questions:
- How to rollback Windows Phone 8.1 update? - the difference is that the device was upgraded OTA in this case, while the one I'm about to get comes with WP8.1
- How to install Windows Phone 7 on a Windows Phone 8 device? - there are hadware differences in this case that shouldn't apply to the 8.1 <--> 8 transition
