Downgrading to JB is as easy as booting into recovery, wiping data, booting into download mode and flashing the stock rom
or booting into recovery and flash a custom TW rom or restore the backup if you made any before flashing Omni.

I have a non-rooted phone upgraded with what Samsung provided (several OTA, then Kies to 4.1.2, N7000XXLTC).

I'd like to downgrade to stock 4.0.4. My steps are:

1. wipe cache & data from Recovery (would a Factory Reset do both?);
2. use Odin to flash the ROM;
3. never do any sort of wipe again.

Is that correct?

Steps are correct... Use the recovery option to wipe data / factory reset ..instead of the settings menu.

same thing for me,

but I have a issue here. I had made a backup of my 4.1.2 rom in cwm, and flashed a 4.4.3 omnibus rom,, after flashing omni I have twrp recovery rather cwm recovery , so I am unable to restore cwm backup

do I need to flash cwm again ,?

or any other ways

omni rom draining battery very fast, and it made a dead battery

thanks

Yes you will need to get CWM.. flash raw or philz kernel and then reboot recovery, wipe and restore the backup.
