    hi, can you tell me how to revert to kitkat 4.4.2 on xolo Q610 as the lollipop release is fully bloated and eats most of the 2 gb of phone memory

      You want to go back to stock firmware?
      The easiest way to do this would be to head on over to the service centre and ask them to do it.
      Otherwise if you want to flash manually it’ll delete your internal storage and you have to do a few complex steps
