Default Help! When is 4.4.2 recovery for Odin coming?

I updated to 4.4.2 via OTA today and I wanted to go back to 4.3. I used Odin to try and recover to 4.3 but it failed multiple times. Now I am screwed because the 4.4.2 recovery for Odin isn't out so my phone is a paperweight until it does. Any idea when it will be out? Thanks

I've tried many different ways of trying to fix it but have yet to prevail.

generally speaking, once you have taken an OTA firmware update you can't go back.....thats why we have warned those you wish to keep root not to take the OTA until a method (if possible) is found to root stock 4.4 kitkat

Yes I understand that now. It is just so unfortunate that of all times I try to update it literally just comes out and no possible way to flash stock version of it.

I've unbricked my phone before with 4.3 I just hope a 4.4.2 version will come out to use with Odin...
