I'm currently on the .86 update & would like to downgrade.

Main reason to downgrade is to get rid of the media storage battery drain & to have the old speaker quality back.

Unfortunately, I can't downgrade using the ROM from Asus as it says "update failed".

How do I downgrade using a PC? Will I lose my Data?

I'm fully aware I'll Lose Volte & other features & I also know that I'll be on a older security patch... But what's the alternative? It's been almost 1 month & Asus haven't released a fix for the aforementioned bugs.

Infact, it's that time of year again, they're releasing a new phone, in this case the Rog Phone 5s so all their time & attention is there rather than on the Rog 5 issues. Any help would be great.
