Default Need help to downgrade 4.4.1 to 4.4 nexus 5

Does anyone have any suggestions for the best method to downgrade from 4.4.1 to 4.4? I have a faulty nexus 5 which I upgraded manually to 4.4.1 by adb sideload. I need to RMA my nexus but they will know I manually updated since Australia has not received ota update. Your help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Flash system image. See sticky thread in general

Google officially supports sideloaded updates though

Always read the OP's of a thread and the last 2 pages before asking questions, unless there has been an update - in which case, read the last 5 pages!
