Default [Q] revert back to 4.3 from 4.4

Does anyone have a noob way of reverting back to 4.3 from 4.4?? Everytime i do it it just gets stuck in a black screen after the google unlock boot screen.

I wipe everything data/cache/dalvik/format system, then install rom and gapps. But nothing. Maybe I am doing something wrong but i cannot find any info on this problem. I also went back to dalvik from using ART so thats not stopping anything from booting?

thanks for suggestions or help in advance.

Before you reboot do a factory reset - have you tried different roms?

Start fresh by download stock 4.3 factory images and then flash them. Once done, start rooting process again.

This worked great, also I used a toolkit to get back to stock 4.3 then root. Thanks for the help.
