Default Downgrade I9500

i just gave a thought to downgrade process.
i want yo ask the devs that can we downgrade s4 from 4.4.2 to 4.3 after changing the boot.img as i think flashing a boot.img will change the bootloader. moreover i was thinking to exctract a 4.3 firmware's boot.img n flash it.
will it hrlp ? will it work ?
i font care for warranty boid.i just need 4.3 back.

You can no longer downgrade your phone to 4.3 after flashing 4.4.2 firmware from Samsung mate but you can still downgrade your phone by flashing a custom 4.3 rom

Are you on a 4.4.2 stock or custom ROM? The safest way to go seems to be flashing any 4.3 custom ROM via Odin or custom recovery.
