Default [Q] going form 4.4.back to 4.3????????

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

i assume you talk about CM11 - 4.4 - official 4.4 is not out yet...

ofc you can go back...i did it twice already...also got knox to 1(don't care)....
used OMNI ROM(4.4.2) - now on stock rooted and removed some samsung apps.

What about 4.3 Knox bootloader and tripping Knox flag?

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.
