When you are on 4.4.2, you can not downgrade anymore.

You can't go back to Jellybean... If you flash a JB rom you will get bootloops. You can't flash CM rom as it requires JB bootloader.
You are on, now and forever, Kitkat(4.4.2) rom...
Doesn't matter how many times you ask the answer isn't going to change...

CM is not possible(yet), look here for 4.4.2 roms : http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...-3/development

I advice you to read and understand before doing things the wrong way. Success!

Is the firmware on your phone newly released? It's the first time I've read a NA2 installed on a N9005.

I managed to downgrade from 4.4.2 to 4.3, what is did is :
Rooted my 4.3
applied chengyu recovery through odin
backed up the rom on an external SD card, removed the card and kept it for reference.
After flashing 4.4.2 and having a camera failed message on every 4.4.2 rom that I tried..
Install the external SD card back, go into recovery, restore... that was it..

So if you have a nandroid back up of your system, you can do it..

There are people claim that their phone bootloader remain old JB despite they've had flashed KK. So it's possible to downgrade.

I think recovery bypasses the bootloader.
If all fails, try to flash the JB bootloader on ODIN..

N900w8 is the only known NOTE 3 which can downgrade and upgrade. I am very sceptical of whether you downgraded or not and there is probably 100 + members that have tried, and failed.. So proof that you have done this please
