Default [Q] Succesful downgrade from mk2 to mj7!!!

My Samsung galaxy S4 i545 verizon was rooted on mj7. I Odin back to factory with the mj7 odin file.then took the mk2 O.T.A. update.. Then I downgraded back to mj7 using odin.. I've been searching forums all day on this few people already know about this, why isnt this big news? Is this a possibility to get a custom recovery on mj7 or mk2?

No, it's not big news. MK2 isn't a major update and doesn't change the kernel or the bootchain, so it's possible to downgrade to MJ7 from MK2. No, no possiblity of a custom recovery. Santa's not that generous, unfortunately.
My Android devices:
vzw Samsung Galaxy S4 stock MJ7, now rooted!
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also stock but rooted.

VZ Droid Incredible 2 rooted but otherwise stock.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Odin'd back to mj7 tried safestrap last night and got no splash screen. I'll just wait till its in alpha or in a more stable stage then give it another go. I Appreciate the suggestion and help
