Default Kitkat to 4.3

Ok, I've been away for quite awhile and was wondering if a way to go back to 4.3 from 4.4 was found yet. I was forced into 4.4 due to it coming preloaded on my replacement phone. I have tried the many 4.4 roms available and just don't like 4.4. Being stuck with it is unacceptable.

If I can't find a way out of kitkat I may have to take the drastic and unwanted leap and trade my gn3 for a gn2.

Thanks...

None of which I'm aware.

Why don't you just install a DeOdex rom with root, and put a decent looking theme on there?

You'll at least have 2x the hardware and updated operating system (yeah, I know you want 4.3 back, but that will soon be two operating systems old).

Either way, I wish you all the best.

Going to perhaps start bringing a theme to 4.4 shortly.

I loved your themes back on the Galaxy S3, would love to see what you can come up with when you have a little more screen real estate. Welcome!

Lol. I have a themed Rom and 3 additional themes for both the note 2 and note 3. However it's for 4.3 and not 4.4. That's why I wanted to go back to 4.3. Check out the thread for toxic swamp in the gn3 development forum. That's kind of what I'll be doing.

Haha, oops... I haven't been much into the themed ROMs/theming on the Note 3, so I didn't notice... Anyways, glad to see your work on here!
