    My current phone, it's currently running Android 10, with the latest security patch (June 1st), but i'd rather go back to Android 8/8.1, i liked the UI more and it ran faster, while taking less overall storage, due to Nokia's genius naming scheme, i've been unable to find info on it, most tutorials are about the original Nokia 6, or the 6.1 plus

    I do not own the phone myself, but i believe i have an answer for you. Be careful tho and read through all the links before you flash your phone:
    1. You need to unlock your bootloader. This might be the biggest hurdle as Nokia is not officially supporting unlocking the phone. You might have to look around for that
    2. Follow the instructions here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/no.../tool-stock-rom-flash-tool-nokia-6-1-t4023965
    You will find a image of the stock firmware here: https://fih-firmware.hikaricalyx.com/hmd_en.html
    Be careful to select the correct file for your phone (TA-1045)
    Althoug at this point you might even want to look at the custom roms for your phone as they might offer a better design and speed as the stock Android 10 while still having the latest patches.

    thanks! as for custom roms, i don't think there are many people making any for my phone (after all, it's not that popular) but i might consider it if i find some
