    Hello! Thanks for this tutorial. Let me ask you a question. I have the gt-p5113, it stock firmware was Android 4.1.1. But I did the update to Android 4.2.2 and the “won´t shut off” problem became to my life. Also, i have the tablet “rooted”. And my doubt is this: Do i have to, first go back to the original android 4.2.2 (unroot the tablet) and just THEN do the downgrade to Android 4.1.1 or I can do the downgrade to Android 4.1.1 straight from the “rooted” version of Android 4.2.2? (Sorry for my english). Bye!!

      I don’t know if you will be able to downgrade from 4.2.2 to 4.1.1… Why you should do that?
