Hi all i need some quick clarification,

1) I am full aware that if you purchased a Note 3 on 4.3 and you updated to stock via either OTA, Kies or Odin the bootloader is upgraded and you cannot downgrade to 4.3 stock.

2) So my question is if you are stock 4.4 and install root, install custom recovery, Can you still downgrade to a 4.3 rom via custom recovery? or will it not allow me to downgrade at all?

3) Finally You can't downgrade to a 4.3 bootloader correct?

2) 4.3 kernels do not boot with the 4.4 bootloader, so no
3) correct
