The Windows Recovery Tools seems to help devices rollback to their previous versions upon any changes made to the device. It works on LG, Lumia, and HTC models. However, a portion of changes made is made through the device being USB plugged into a computer to make changes. Not easy for beginners, but reading up on the steps will make it easier.
