CANT DOWNGRADE WITH ODIN. You either need to odin the MK4 or flash a custom recovery (twrp) and use billards back to stock mc2 with counter reset which will downgrade you.

Philz is the best all around (a modified cwm). It will install/backup and restore every rom out there. TWRP can have issues with touchwiz 4.3 and AOSP 4.4 roms. If you choose to use philz dont use the newest version 06.12.xx it works but need your zips need to have the latest script and binary (which most dont).
