Google delighted the Android fans last month by rolling out the Android N Developer Preview
to get a glimpse of the upcoming update. Now that you have tried out the Android N preview and enjoyed your fair share of new features (and bugs), you might be thinking of how to downgrade from Android N Developer Preview on your device.
Although the Android N
is officially being unveiled at Google I/O 2016
, it does not mean that your compatible device is stuck with the Android N preview until the update. For Nexus device users, there is a simple way to downgrade from Android N Developer Preview directly from the device itself.
Google clearly states that all you phone data will be wiped off if you decide to opt-out of the Android Beta program. So make sure that you backup all your data before you proceed any further.
Simply begin by heading over to the Android Beta Program page
, which is the same web page you used to install the Android N Developer Preview. You will be able to see the devices connected to your Google account, which has been installed with the Android N preview.
Next to the image of your Android device, there should be a large green button that reads “Unenroll Device”. Click the button and then confirm to downgrade from Android N Developer Preview
by clicking the “Leave Beta” button on the pop-up window.
Just wait a few minutes and you should be able to view an available OTA update on the Android device you have selected to “unenroll”. If you can’t automatically see the available update after a while, go to Settings-> About-> System Updates, and then tap on “Check for update”. You should now be able to view the latest public Android update available for your device, so tap on “Download”.
This will begin downloading Android 6.0 Marshmallow
for your device, and revert back from Android N. Once your device has been flashed with the latest update, you can set up or restore your data back on your newly formatted device.
