I think you will need to root it and such install a custom recovery so that you can flash that older version. Check this thread for rooting info: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1956180

Make sure you actually read the instructions. Not reading everything fully means bricking your device. As for getting your MSL... Here's an app that might work, if it doesn't watch the YouTube video and see if that helps.

You will never be able to go to stock 4.2 not matter what you do. We have 4.1.2, 4.3, and 4.4.2 stock roms only. Like stated above root, flash recovery then the rom you want.

Tryin to revert everything downwards is where semi bricks are coming from. It is really not needed and not for normal users to try and do.
