    Apologies is this has been asked before. My uk moto e 2ng gen 4G lte has just upgraded to Marshmallow 6.0 firmware, would it be possible to downgrade to the previous stock firmware Lollipop 5.0.2 without needing to unlock the bootloader. I read on another site that upgrading firmware works okay however downgrading needs the bootloader to be unlocked? Could someone please advise if this is correct.

    I'm just curious, and feel free not to answer but why do you want to downgrade?

    Not a problem, I actually prefer lollipop firmware to marshmallow.

    I tried to reset my phone but it just automatically updated. Marshmallow corrupts SD cards.
