A question. I have just rooted this with Kingroot and had to downgrade from Kitkat ANL1 down to ANF7.
After rooting and keeping knox 0x0 I am left with the firmware back at ANL1 and the bootloader at ANF7. So to complete I was hoping to upgrade the bootloader back to ANL1.
Do you think this will be a problem in any way? I'm hoping that by returning to the correct bootloader to match the firmware there shouldn't be any danger.
Happy that my instructions helped you,
In answering to your question, i haven't downgraded my bootloader on any of my devices, never take that risk,
although in theory it has to work ONLY IF both bootloaders are for the same firmware, for example in your case both ANL1 and ANF7 are 4.4.2 so i think it might work but im not sure.
I am 90% sure that it is not going to work if you had new lollipop bootloader and you want to downgrade to kitkat.
And finally why do you want to match bootloader versions anyway? It is always good to have latest bootloader (recommended), newer bootloaders are always backward compatible, meaning that if you have kitkat bootloader you cant install lollipop rom(actually you can but phone wont boot to rom) but if you have lollipop bootloader you can install kitkat rom, got it?
