    Unfortunately, unless you're rooted you won't be able to revert back to a previous build. And..... If I'm not mistaken, even that may brick your device. (Something about blowing a fuse, which makes it impossible to come back from, resulting in a hard brick) hopefully one of our more knowledgeable S4 owners can confirm this.

    I haven't heard about the fuse issue, but if it's the colors you are having an issue with, which many people do, try a different launcher. You can get a little more flexibility with some in the color selections but as @cr6 said, unless you are rooted your options aren't all that great and falling back to a previous version of Android is risky.

    Current versions of Android don't support Flash player, try Puffin or Flashfox as an alternative browser.

    Hmmm...maybe that was just an S5 issue. Thanks for weighing in @Leeshor !

    Sometimes being on so many forums can get confusing.

    You can't go back to the original version unfortunately. I had an update back in January and one recently. I like the old version better too
