Hello,

I have a Samsung Galaxy S 3 SCH-I535. I installed CyanogenMod and after some time a new version came out. I installed the new version but after that everything went wrong. Search bar got changed, can't access Google play, data connectivity was changed and so many other things. Is there a way to undo these changes?

Hi Alex,
The error is because some files of old Cyanogenmod are present in the system.
To resolve this error follow the steps mentioned below:
1) If you system has an older version of Cyanogenmod installed, transfer it to phone through Clockwork Mod recovery
2) Search for the Gapplication file that is compatible with it and install it
3) You need to backup all the files form the phone
4) Go to 'Backup and Restore' option, restore the phone to the earlier date
5) Now uninstall and install the latest version of Cyanogenmod in the phone
6) Restart the device after the installation is completed

Hi Alex,

Reverting to your old installed CyanogenMod is possible. However, since it is a do-it-yourself process might null and void your warranty because Samsung Galaxy S3 now has a built-in custom binary download counter. It is capable to record how many times your phone’s storage got flashed. The process has been tested but it should be understood as an ‘at your own risk’ procedure.

First, you have to back up your everything before doing the procedure. It can be either thru Google Sync or the Recovery Mode Nandroid backup. Second, you need to do the process manually.

Just follow the five (5) simple steps below:

1. Download the old version of CM for your S3. The file usually ends in .zip

2. Then using the buttons, Hold Volume Up, Home, & the Power button, continue to hold all three until the screen flashes, then release all buttons. Choose reboot into Recovery option.

3. Locate the file ending in .zip that you previously downloaded. It is usually stored in /sdcard/partition. If file name is unavailable check /sdcard/download folder. Also, if you have a back up in your computer it is found in adb push filename.zip/sdcard/ to the device.

4. Use the recovery menu and select flash the .zip file from sd, locate the .zip. “Accept” click “yes” if asked about flashing

5. Lastly , select the option to restar your device. Turn off then phone and then On.
