Technically,you don't need to downgrade the entire system to 7.2.3,only the boot loader. So,a factory reset to stock Amazon is what I would recommend. Then get the OTA update,root it and install the 2nd booltoader and TWRP on it,AFTER you install the 7.2.3 booltoader. There are various ways to do all these. You can use stanga72's FireFlash app,or my Flasher tool,or install them manually.
Good luck.
