Why go back?? Try a factory reset. I have a note 3 Exynos on lollipop and it works really well. IMO the mobile is faster than it used to be on kitkat.

However if you want to downgrade, the download the latest version of kitkat and flash it using Odin.

Edit: Take the downgrade as a last resort since there is no sure way of knowing.. Sorry.

  • I tried factory reset but there is little bit lag.Animations seems too be little bit laggy also charging seems to be slower then before.Any risk regarding flashing KitKat rom via Odin.When i updgraded my os does bootloader also gets updated? – user3692159 Apr 6 '15 at 17:13
  • Yes 5.0 contains a new boot loader. So you are definitely upgrading the bl. So downgrading is a bit risky. Although you can check. – ArjunA Apr 6 '15 at 17:14
  • So that means i cannot downgrade my phone just by flashing rom from odin – user3692159 Apr 6 '15 at 17:15
  • I am not an 100 percent sure since some ppl have reported that just downloading and flashing the kitkat stock worked while some got into bootloops. You will have to thoroughly research this man. Sorry – ArjunA Apr 6 '15 at 17:17
  • Can flashing KitKat rom may lead to hard bricking of device? – user3692159 Apr 6 '15 at 17:25
