I received a refurbished phone with KitKat already installed. I am already rooted. What has to happen for me to be able to go back to jelly bean? The one search I found didn't give a final answer

You can flash a zip through cwm and get back to JB, but do not try to flash back using Odin because it'll brick you. And just know that even if you flash back to a JB ROM you are stuck with KK boot loader and modem.
