Question [Q] Downgrading 4.3 to 4.1.2 on GTN7105

I only really used to lurk the forums, but I've seen a lot of conflicting threads with regards to rooting/downgrading methods for this particular model which is why I'm asking here today:

My understanding is that KNOX itself will trip when rooting occurs and voids the warranty, and that it also blocks bootloading(?)

I made the mistake of updating to 4.3 a while back and I've regretted it ever since, and now that there's an OFW update to 4.4.2 (I'd rather not update it) I'm stuck between updating to 4.4.2 (Which might lock me out of downgrading) or staying with 4.3 until a solution appears.

Here are my device details:

SAMSUNG NOTE 2 LTE
GT-N7105
Android Ver: 4.3
Baseband ver: N7105XXUEMJ9
Build: JSS15J.N7105XXUEML3

I'm already past warranty so tripping knox isn't a problem, I just want to bring it back down to 4.1.2.

Can anyone give me advice or a step-by-step on how I should proceed? I've been looking for a solution over the last few months without any real progress...

Once Knox is triggered or updating to official 4.3 and higher one cannot downgrade to 4.1.2. So you are stuck with 4.3 and higher ROMs. Bye bye 4.1.2

Is this reliable?
