I was reading something about not being able to go back form 4.4 back to 4.3

is is true that I cant go back to 4.3 or lower if I change to 4.4, are they talking guff or is that only to do with if you have update to official stock firmware

thank you for your help in advance

Edit: ive modded my phone already tripped knox so that's not a problem. im running cm 10.1.3 stable at the mo

Have you flashed the stock 4.3 firmware before? If not, you don't have to care about Knox boot loader.

I was on 4.1.2 ripper rom first. Then 4.3 alliance rom and after it I tried many 4.4.2 aosp Roms. Now I wanted to go back to 4.3 and I flashed alliance rom without data wipe and it works like a charm. Maybe it's better to wipe, but for me it worked without it. Important is that you don't have Knox on your Sammy.
