As the title implies, I'm stuck on a 4.4 ROM and can't get back to 4.3 stock. I've tried using recovery, but it fails or sticks me in a bootloop. Whenever it fails, it says can't mount /preload. I feel reaaaaaaaaaly stupid but I'm stuck. Help?

And I know I'm a huge bundle of FUBAR's, but for some reason I'm acting like a first time flasher.

It ain't so bad for me. I think there's just a problem doing twrp 4.3 restores because of Knox.

Philz recovery will backup and restore touchwiz 4.3 properly. Make sure that you use 6.07.09 version the latest 6.12.xx requires a new binary and script changes to install most roms.

Philz is awesome! Somehow I've never heard of it.
