Usually a software downgrade can only be achieved by rooting your phone and flashing a lower version which is really complicated and will void your warranty and could also brick your phone (which is complicated and sometimes if it's hard bricked you need to buy a new one, but this will not happen if you will follow instructions on rooting/flashing carefully).

Many thanks for the massage. I have updated to the 4.3 android version. What is really missing the latest android is the theme which places orthogonal coloured borders around each application picture in the screen windows. I guess I have to look at the android:windowBackground ?

Officially, there's no rolling back to the previous version of your Android OS. Typically, updates introduce new features and resolve bugs. Is there something about your update you need help with?
