Maybe you can try try to downgrade to Jellybean from the same region(China).
If it still fails, meaning your current P601 Bootloader doesn't allow to downgrade to Jellybeans once update to KK.

Thank you for the explanation. I tried to use Russian Kitkat version and it worked.

Please don't use the chi a firmware; since it doesnot have google play store or any google stuff.
Russian firmware is ok. It has all google stuff plus extras.

Hope this helps for anyone with a similar issue.

Well, I could only install Russian Kikat version. I guess anyone who tried kitkat on SM-P601 would not be able to downgrade due to boot loader issue.
