Hi.

I have a Galaxy S4 m919 with Android 4.4.2 and I need to put Android 4.2.2, I'd like that someone explain me which is the procedure that need I to do.

I would appreciate much your help.

Here is a link with a DL link for the firmware. Just Google "how to flash stock firmware with Odin". Trying to downgrade may brick your phone so good luck

I would like to downgrade to 4.4.2 because the 4.4.4 version is hard to root (i've rooted with Odin) but it lost the effect in lock screen (light that follow the finger without touch the screen).

Use cf-autoroot for root, and for the light you need to have air gesture or air view enabled

These settings are enabled, I compared all settings with another S4 and they are the same but it doesn't work at 4.4.4. Any suggestions?

Then I don't know I'll try it when I update in the next few days, but there is no way to downgrade the firmware. You can however flash a 4.4.2 ROM instead
