Here are instructions on the 2016 A5 downgrade.

You need to find the 2017 stock image to downgrade.

What I don't know is if this will trip a Samsung KNOX security error.

IF you trip KNOX, you have voided your warranty.

If you are not worried about warranty, carry on.

Unfortunately, you cannot downgrade an android phone once updated. If you tell us your problems with the latest OS we may be able to work them out.

I lost all my emails in the notes and personal since my update this morning 3/24/2018. I want it to be put back on today

@cschupp2012 Your emails are not stored on the phone itself. They are stored in the "cloud". All you need to do sign back into your Email account on that phone and they will return.

My phone updated today and I want to be able to attach different notifications sounds to individual contacts and it's gone! Can I get that function back?

by

@strawberrysteve It varies based on the phone, however, in general you can do this from the contacts app. Go to you contacts app, select the contact you'd like to change the sound for and click edit. The edit button typically looks like a pen in one of the corners. On that page, scroll down to the ring tone and notifications settings, and change as desired. Hope this helps!
