Try Factory Reset, then if this not help I think should not be any problem downgrade to 4.3 via Flashtool, I did not do that so I guess it will be all ok, theoretically.

Actually the IMEI lost is reported when you jump to some FW like downgrading directly to .257. It was said to do it step by step to avoid that so in your case downgrading to 4.3 it will be just fine.
