Not for me. At all. 4.4.2 is no different. Just gotta troubleshoot if battery is bad. Anything can be fixed.
That said. Yes you can download. Have to search for exactly how. And if you take an ota after, you could brick.
In my opinion, its risky business downgrading from 4.4.2 no matter the method, or locked or unlocked bootloader.
Just read read read first. And be careful. Been lots of bricks downgrading. But I do think there's a reasonably safe way to do it....tho I've never done it, or wanted to.
Just my 2 cents.
These aren't nexuses....some things can't be done, or need to be done carefully.
