I love WAZE, is it possible to get the previous version back?

Ware you prompted for an update?

Try doing "clean" install. Wipe cache, wipe data, force stop, uninstall. Delete Waze folder. Reboot the phone and install again from Play Store.
Hardware:
Nexus 5 KK 4.4.2
HTC One KK 4.4.2
Galaxy Tab 7.7 GT-P6800 JB 4.1.2
Nexus 10 KK 4.4.2

Yes it prompted me that it needed to be updated.

I did uninstall, wiped data and cache, and reinstalled from the Play store. Only thing I didn't do was the kill the folder. Guess I could try that. I'd rather just get the last version back...
