Default [Q] Downgrade from 4.4.2

Hello. I'm currentry using DN3 4.4.2 on my Note II. Before this, i had 4.1.2 HD Rev. Well, i realized a high usage of battery even from messaging. Now , i want to gab back to 4.3 HD rev, as it has a better battery life. I read about this and couldn't find a proper answer, if i can go back or not.
(openrecovery-twrp-2.7.0.2-t03g.img was flashed with Odin, after i encountered a crash with my cwm recovery)

Go to http://goo.im/devs/philz_touch/CWM_A..._Edition/n7100
and download the philz recovery md5 file. Flash it through odin. Now will have philz recovery installed. But in order to revert back to 4.3 from 4.4 you
need to format your internal partition. After doing this, flash 4.3 rom.

Goto recovery mode and click on "Clean to install a new rom" and then flash the rom you would like to. If your phone still doesn't boot up, click wipe internal storage option. It might be present in the wipe menu or Advanced submenu.
