    Is downgrading of Android firmware possible?

    I have an Android Nexus 7 that is currently on 4.2.2 and it has a 16GB memory. On upgrading the firmware I found that I liked the previous version better and would like to move back to it. Is downgrading firmware possible in Android?

    You could get this done by rooting your device. The process is quite easy to do though if something goes wrong you could end up spoiling your phone. Now use theWugs Nexus Root Tool Kit. First of all you got to unlock your device and get it rooted. After rooting is done click flash stock and get it unrooted. Then choose 4.1 or whatever other stock ROM from the list and get your desired version. While doing this get all your data backed up or you would lose them in the process. You can have them stored back after the process is completed.
