Is it possible to downgrade back to 4.3?
I tried flashing the 4.3 firmware with Odin but it gave a failed message. I also tried flashing a 4.3 ROM but that just sent me into a bootloop. Hado to flash 4.4.2 with Odin to fix that.

I heard it's something about the bootloader that prevents downgrading.
Any ideas?

Not possible atm, maybe sometime later but quite possibly never.

is it possible via custom recovery? go back to a custom 4.3 rom? if you are on the 4.4 bootloader?

NO, once you have the 4.4 bootloader, you can NOT go back to 4.3 ROM's. At least not yet...

There's some hope downgrading here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...62&postcount=4
I haven't tested it, so you might want to contact him for details.
