You cant DOWNGRADE
to the earlier 4.2.2 now.. as xda senior member @F4k
AFAIK you can't downgrade to ROM with different knox bootloader version, you can only downgrade to a 4.2.2 ROM if that ROM have the same knox bootloader.
AFAIK KitKat stock ROMs have knox bootloader 2.0, so you need find any other 4.2.2 ROM with this bootloader version.
the rom from Russian Firmware gt i9192 click to download
no problems will be there flashing with odin

connect your phone, switch to download mode by pressing volume up (you can see that in the screen).
select PDA and select that CF-Auto-Root-serranods-serranodsxx-gti9192.tar.md5
and select start.
your phone must restart
before restarting hold volume up+home+lock buttons and enter into recovery
select install update from sd card, and select that supersu that you have downloaded earlier ..
after that boot phone normally and you will see that supersu is installed, open it and select YES
to the option to disable knox..
Now to install the recovery..
Actually you can do this anytime...
switch phone back to odin mode (download mode) and select PDA in odin again,
this time select that philz recovery and click start
