Default Downgrade from 4.4.2 to 4.2.2

Hey folks, just wanted to know is there a way to downgrade from 4.4.2 to 4.2.2?

I don't care about triggering the knox counter whatsoever.

Is it possible by rooting maybe?

Thanks.

hi there!
is it posible to perform this downgrade from 4.4.2 to 4.2.2 in a i9190 device? Because I think the link to the solution is for the i9195 model only.
