    Is there any way to downgrade a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 running KitKat 4.4.2 to Jelly Bean 4.2.2? I've looked everywhere on the internet and everything I've found says you can’t. The reason I need to do this is to be able to display the onscreen keyboard along with a Bluetooth RF scanner. On 4.4.2 as soon as you connect the scanner, the onscreen keyboard is disabled. I've tried every keyboard setting imaginable as well as downloading alternate keyboard apps...

    Welcome to the Forum. I don't believe you can downgrade without rooting your Tab.

    I have the device rooted, I would think I would just flash a 4.2.2 firmware to the tab 4 but I don't think it ever ran that version. All I can find are 4.4.2 firmwares. Would I flash a tab 2 firmware to it (runs 4.2.2)?
