Stock Marshmallow downgrade to 5.1.1 - Installing TWRP?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My Marshmallow Smart Ultra 6 is very slow, battery life is bad and I can't use AUX cables. I thought I'd do a factory reset but I thought I might as well downgrade to Lollipop. I see there are bits and pieces of info on the topic scattered around the forum but no thread specifically about that. I would like to ask for help with this and I'll collate all info I've gathered here so if anyone wants to do the same in the future, they have what to use as a guide.

1. I have downloaded the UK 5.1.1 VDF-995NB01-UK09b stock ROM & recovery from the Vodafone Smart Ultra 6 stock ROMs, OTAs, and recoveries thread.

2. My phone has 6.0.1 VDF-995NB02-UK10d stock ROM with stock recovery, therefore I need to install the stock recovery for B01-UK09b

This is where I am stuck. I can see you can install a stock recovery with TWRP, but I need root to install TWRP, but I can't get root because I'm on stock 6.0.1.

How do I install TWRP or how do I downgrade my stock recovery so I can install the old stock UK 5.1.1 ?

 

Any help would be much appreciated! :)

Although I have not done this myself I believe people have success using the Turkish ROM to downgrade.

Thank you for your reply, @nutsda !

I am reluctant to install it because without having the right Recovery version. As far as I understand, I will be stuck in a boot loop if my recovery is not the right for the ROM I'm installing. Does anyone know how I can find more details about my recovery?

Many thanks! :)
