Default can I downgrade from 4.4 to 4.2 or 4.3 ??

hello there

I just wondering If I can downgrade my firmware from 4.4.2 to 4.2.2 or 4.3 in safe way

because I read that is not safe to downgrade because ,,, you may lose your network access & IMEI & and get invalid SIM !!!
How I can avoid that ???

because I have a big problem I cannot solve it at anyway I try many rom's (stock rom's & customs rom's like(cm11 )
and the problem not solve it !!!!!

the problem is / I cannot record video (camera video mode) ,,, when I do that the mobile freezing the restart !!! also youtube videos not work !!
and If I play video any video on mobile is freezing and stop working !!!

SO I would like to downgrade my firmware maybe will solve this problem

or I will wait your help for another way to solve this issue

Thanx

No you can't.. Because you may brick your device.... As long as you are with knox bootloader which came with 4.3 and above... Then you can't downgrade.
But you can reflash the latest 4.4.2 tar file using Odin... This should solve your issues.

The problem may be in the flashed file itself ...try to download tar file which is maybe 1.2 gigabyte from another site.
and then flash your device again.
