    It would be better to refresh or reset than try that.

    I dont want to have to lose all my 3rd party app stuff like games etc. My download speed is terrible.
    Is it possible to remove updates? It's worth giving this a shot

    It's not worth trying to do so. It will usually fail and cause more issues.

    Unless you have a system image that you could restore, not that I'm aware of.
