How to Downgrade to Android Nougat

How to Downgrade to Android Nougat

If you make the move to Android O Nougat you aren't stuck. You can downgrade to Android Nougat if your device starts to struggle.

If you get tired of the bugs you can get off the Nexus 5X's Android O beta update at any time. You simply need to unenroll your Nexus 5X from the beta program. 

To do that, head back to the Google Android beta page and click the big green button that says "Unenroll Device." 

Soon after that, your device will be sent an OTA update that will wipe all user data and install the latest stable public version of Android. As of right now, that's the May Android Nougat build. 

This will wipe all of your data so make sure you backup all of your data before you unenroll from the program and install Nougat.

    Gmail never worked for my Nexus 5x, (open and crush) when android beta installed. After resetting the device, could not boot and was restarting continuously. Thank God is still under warranty and just dropped it off to the retailer.

    My device became so slow I had to downgrade out of it. Which wipes your phone by the way. It has some pretty cool features but my 5x was struggling. Web browsing was extremely slow. And cycling between open apps usually involved the wrong app opening. Many apps were sluggish as well. Don’t recommend using the beta.

    I understand from what I’ve read in XDA Developer forum that the objective was to quickly boot Android O (say 15 secs) and the change in the odex files takes place in the background gradually. Hence, when you install O it will be very slow and there will be problems with the smoothness while changing or starting apps. However, in one or two days it will stabilize. Hence, if you want to try O be prepared to hang around on it for at least 2 days before giving up. Try it on the weekend maybe. Battery life from most sources seems to give 2 hours screen on time (SOT).
