Default Root on 4.4.2

Hi everyone.
I have 4.4.2 installed manually and now i want to get back the stock rom 4.2.2 because of a big touchscreen problem.
With flash tool, it always stopps at 15% so i have to flash rom with custom recovery.
The device is now unrooted, so i need a method to root KitKat. I tried already with iroot, vroot, kingo root, super one click root but none of them worked.
I need your help, thanks.

I have a question,

About My phone, Before installing Kitkat:
D802 İnternational (Turkey)

after installed Kitkat, a vodafone amblem started to appear every time the phone i turned the phone.

What does it mean?

Which stock firmware, i have to install?

Thanks

there is a link in the OP of that thread leading to 4.2.2 firmwares. Look it up, there is one for Turkish d802 too http://storagecow.eu/index.php?dir=X...ck%2FTurkey%2F
Just check whether you have 16GB or 32GB version

Root for 4.4.2 is possible - if you flash the stock ROM as a zip file in custom recovery from 4.2.2 (which will be overwritten after the flash)
then you can directly flash the supersu zip:
1. boot into 4.2.2 custom ROM
2. install 4.4.2 zip and don't reboot
3. install supersu zip - don't reboot
4. wipe data, cache and dalvik-cache - then reboot
For zips you can use the forum-search function
There's also a custom boot-partition which enables to stay on the old custom recovery, but that's only made for B-Devices...

Thank you so much
Finally SOLVED!

After you told that i can not root 4.4.2, i completely focused on flash tool with the help of your link.
Finally after 5 days, using the phone with mouse, now i can use the touchscreen again.
Thank you so much again
