Default [Q] Guaranteed Way to Downgrade Without Bricking?

I have an AT&T SGH-i747 running the OTA 4.3 and I want to downgrade it to stock firmware 4.1.1 or 4.1.2 but after doing some searching all I see are warnings that I will brick my phone. So is there really no way to do this without bricking?

Flashing any ROM always carries the risk of bricking.

Any particular reason you want to downgrade to 4.1.1 or 4.1.2?

if your purpose of downgrading is to unlock, I advice you to give up because you can't downgrade the bootloader
Phone: Samsung Galaxy S3 I747
Network: T-Mobile
Recovery: TWRP latest
Rom: some AOSP
