i know you need to get the recovery image like:




I followed, but it couldn't let me to downgrade


and i see it says it will update to 8.1 something...


So as the title said, how to downgrade the surface rt?


I know someone will ask me why i need to downgrade to 8.0, 8.1 has more services than 8.0


 well, as anyone who already know, window 8.0 jailbreak could let you install Google chrome browser 


so i really want to downgrade to 8.0


or if anyone know how to install google chrome browser on surface rt 8.1, please tell m(_ _)m

I would think if you did a factory reset on a Surface RT it would go back to Windows RT 8.0. If you have a Surface 2, I doubt you could go back further than 8.1. 

I hear about this RT jailbreak, but there is no RT version of Chrome, so I don't think there is a way to get it to run.

Can you post a link to the jailbreak and Chrome info?

You may have read this:


I don't think Chrome and FireFox were ever ported to RT.

What you can run from jailbreak on RT is open source apps that have been recompiled for RT:



The Microsoft recovery image you have linked to above may work, but if your main objective is to run Chrome on RT, I do not think you will be able to get there.
