Now you can downgrade 4.4.2 kitkat to 4.3 jelly bean

You must have

1)an official stock 4.3

2)mobile odin

3)pc odin(computer odin)

4)This kernel (http://goo.gl/8MGXnQ)

5)custom recovery

6)rooted 4.4.2

Instructions:-

1)copy the stock 4.3 to sd card

2)flash it using mobile odin and make sure that all boxes are checked

3)flash custom recovery via pc odin

4)flash the kernel via custom recovery

Enjoy 4.3

Tested on my Gt-i9505

Notes:-

1)if you didn't flash the kernel you won't be able to use wifi

2)make sure to backup EFS and IMEI using EFS PRO (https://www.mediafire.com/?4smom74xg5tfkxu)
I wish i could helped many people to get rid of 4.4.2 kitkat

Thank you for posting this... won't do me any good as I'm not rooted...and need to downgrade to saferoot. But what is known about the custom kernel...I was under the impression using stuff for s4 variants that are not yours is dangerous. Im using the sprint version.
Regardless, I'm giving you a "thanks" for posting this as its a step in the right direction.

Has anyone tried is as follows
Flash MDM or MDF firmware that can receive OTA update and thereby update the phone
These two still receive firmware 4.2.2 OTA updates
Does not get downgrade with this way
