No, unless you have the N900W8 device.

Then no, it could have been done on 4.3 but not on 4.4.2 and you can`t downgrade.

Does triggering knox num really void warranty??
Because I'm really getting mad of this bad system
SODs, lags, microSD erros, keyboard doesn't type sometimes, calling the contact delays 45seconds at least to start calling screen

I suggest doing a data factory reset or if that doesn`t help reflash the rom you have with Odin followed by a factory reset . I`am on stock too and i don`t have the issues you discribe.

You cannot downgrade to 4.3, the bootloader and software will prevent that and installation will fail.

Good luck, also install CPU Spy for cpu deep sleep and BetterBatteryStatts for app activity and battery usage.
