Question: If i'm on stock rom I605VRUFND7 4.4.2 (i know that cant be rooted yet), is it possible to downgrade to the 4.3 stock rom or 4.1.2 stock room and then stay with that and root it?

I've downloaded every SCH-i605 rom from the SamMobile Firmware site and tried them all and they all fail in Odin. 4.1.2 got the end and fails, 4.3 Nov failed instantly and i'm about to try 4.3 May in a sec (slow download) 4.4.2 firmware is what i use when i brick my phone (LOL)

I know it sounds like a long shot and all i'v found is that company you can Pay MobileTechVideos. But even on their site i didn't see a service to go from 4.4.2 to 4.3...this is Frustrating and i know i'm not the only Noob that has thought to try this. Can anyone explain why it wouldn't work...talk slow for me... lol

No you can't downgrade by flashing with odin. Reason is the bootloader is designed not to allow this. And yes this has been posted about several times.
