Angry Downgrading from MJ7 to MJ1, is this possible?

Can I still do this? I wan to update to MJ7 but I'm region locked and the only way I'm having network connection is from RegionLockAway which in case only works with MJ1. So my question is if I'm on MJ7, can I odin my way back to MJ1? Thanks!!

DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!
1. Be glad you came here and asked before trying anything
2. MJ7 has worse battery ever on Note 3
3. No you can't downgrade because of number 4
4. It will flash the new bootloader from samsung which will show Warranty bit in Download mode (Assuming you are on Exynos version)
5. Hold out for now and wait for a more stable release from Samsung. MJ7 and MK2 are not really the best.

Even with my backup on CWM? It will just give me bootloops? So basically once I'm updated, there's no possible way of downgrading. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, MAN. YOU SAVE ME A LOT OF SLEEP TONIGHT

You are welcome mate! I really wish I had someone to guide me the same way. That's why I am happy to help. Don't wanna see anyone make the same mistakes... If you must update, use ONLY Bootloader-free ROMs like from here if you have Exynos Note 3 - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2461580

MY ADVICE, DON'T Update. It's not worth it! Enjoy your phone mate!

Hey is the MJ4 update the same as the MJ7 that others have?

Can the MJ4 downgrade to MJ1 again?

Thanks!
