How do I uninstall an Android update on an LG Optimus F3?

Anonymous December 14, 2013

I have and LG OPTIMUS F3 4.1.2

T-Mobile just sent out an update to my phone and unfortunately it is set to update automatically. How can I revert back to the original factory OS setting?

I have tried factory reset and hard reset (volume down, home and power button). Both booted back up with the updated operating system. My ultimate goal is to revert back to an older Google Maps version. With the new phone update I cannot uninstall Google Maps. Plus some settings are annoying, I just prefer the way it was.

Any ideas or workarounds?

    perhaps it is in the system partition, then you have to root LG Optimus F3, uninstall Google Maps and install manually older version apk?
