    thanks in advance

    • If I’m not wrong you are trying to downgrade from Lollipop to KitKat which is not possible and it is clearly mentioned by the YU itself in the software update notification, you can check the image here.

  2. I got my Yureka with kitkat. Then I unlocked bootloader, flashed cwm recovery and rooted. Then I flashed crdroid ROM. I’m on crdroid ROM now. Can I use this procedure or will it brick my device?

    • No, this method will not brick your device, unless you are on the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop firmware which was rolled out by YU.

  3. hey bro. i was downgrading my yureka from lolipop to cm11 then it got strucked and not powering on if i connect my phone to pc it is showing one light on top thats it .. i think my phone has hardbricked then can u solve this problem .. if you can then please reply me soon… i am waiting for ur reply

    • Hey Sunil, I’m sorry to say that you have bricked your device by downgrading it to KitKat from Lollipop. Actually YU has clearly mentioned in the update notification that downgrading is not possible. If you still have access to the Recovery Mode then try flashing the Stock Lollipop version back or else try some Custom ROM’s available at YU forums.

  4. Let me know if you still have issues while downgrading from LP to KK. only thing can help is if you can still go into recovery mode. volume up+down+ power button, if you get into recovery then certainly you can restore the phone to either LP or KK or anything 🙂
