OK, then the answer to the question is: No, you cannot return to the previous colors or version. Even a factory reset will NOT accomplish what you want to do.
What type of old settings? Are you wanting to go back to the original setup out of the box new, or back to what? Are you referring to changes since the last update?
Thanks for responding. I want to go back to original set-up of new factory settings, when I first got it.
This will reset ALL and EVERYTHING back to defaults as you wish, but it will NOT revert from Lollipop to KitKat.
Are you trying to go back to an older OS version or just back to factory defaults?
I want the phone to be where it was when I first got it, before I had to reset it. If ''older OS version' is what you mean, then yes.
No, you cannot revert to your old verison of the OS. I think there is a miscommunication here:
Do you have bright colors on all your apps like Messaging now (orange maybe) when previously you had blue or less vivid colors?
Check your phone....Settings-About Phone-Software Version do you see KitKat 4.4.x or Lollipop 5.x?
If you reset the phone, it will go back to whichever OS version you are on right now. Either way, all will be gone and back to factory settings, not necessarily factory colors.
I you can tell me the above info about the OS Version, I can answer more clearly.
Which do you see first (teal) or second photo (orange?)
Thank you. If you factory reset now using the above instructions/link you will go back to a factory state of defaults, but NOT to how it was out of the box brand new.
What is it you want to change or don't like or what's the problem you are facing?
Thank you. I'm not having any problems, just want it back to the way it looked, before it was reset. But why am I not seeing KitKat or Lollipop in the About Phone settings?
Yes, you will be stuck on those colors until a new update comes out whenever that might be in a year or so.
Under About Phone-Software Version-Android Version, what numbers do you see in a x.x.x format? 5.0.1?
