Question [Q] Downgrading from NF3 to NE4

Hello I have a N9005 and I want to know whether anyone has tried to downgrade firmware from NF3 to NE4 (still Kitkat)? Is it succesful?

You can't do this. Bootloader will stop you from downgrading as your bootloader doesn't support this.

You will get a binary error.
ROM Problem? Try this or ask me on G+!
Root/TWRP/Kernel/ROM and KNOX 0x0 on N900W8? My guide.

Primary Phone: OnePlus One - A0001
Mahdi v2.7 14/09, ak v40b08, MR-TWRP 2.8.0

Secondary Phone: Note 3 - SM-N900W8
Temasek UO v133, Temasek v3.93, TWRP 2.7.2, NA2 BL, NB7 CP, 0x0

Tablet: Nexus 7 (2012)

OnePlus One ◆ Note 3 ◆ Xperia Tab P ◆ Nexus 7 ◆ Note II LTE ◆ S III LTE ◆ One X ◆ Note I ◆ Galaxy Nexus ◆ S II LTE ◆ S II

You can do it with a lower bootloader.

Regardless doing so will trip KNOX.
