Nope, once the update installs the only way is to flash the previous ROM and there are good chances of voiding the warranty and/or bricking the phone in the process if you don't know what you're doing. Not to mention erasing all the data on the phone.

No, unlike some other devices that go back to the original software when you reset them the phones just reset the user settings and data. The system will remain at the latest version, so unfortunately getting used to it is the only option Smiley Sad
