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.

You can do it with a lower bootloader.

Regardless doing so will trip KNOX.
