Default [Q] Downgrade to I535VRBMF1

Is it safe to downgrade to the official I535VRBMF1 from the current 4.3 update on my samsung galaxy s3 phone? Or will it hard brick my phone?

I have read other members indicate it would hard brick your phone.

It'll hard brick. Once you took the OTA you lost your ability to flash anything, your stuck with TW 4.3 until someone cracks the bootloader or finds away around.
