Used the Flashtool to downgrade. I was on 4.3 .569 firmware then simply flashed .67 firmware using flashtool. No luck

Did you choose to wipe data? Its important to do that since you are downgrading from higher Android version.

Try a different region just to ensure that there is no issues with the FTF. Make sure the MD5 is the same after you download.

Ok sorry guys didnt reply earlier.
Here is what i did
1- upgraded to 101
2- used flash tool and flashed the .67 stock on a clean stock 101 with wiped data...etc.
3- rooted and installed cwm dual recovery and booted device
4- flashed exsitenz v6 and its important not to boot rom just shut down from recovery
5- while shut down, flash the 101 kernel (stock kernel as am on LB) then boot.

Evweything is working great now.

You have a unlocked bootloader, right?

i downgrade with flashtool
dudes, I did the downgrade (4.3 > 4.2) using flashtool, you have to find&download C6602_10.3.1.A.2.67_India Generic.ftf, and it's done...

btw you can root 4.2.2 using kingo andorid root, with lb, and later wait for ota (twice, until .101), it's pretty easy but you need some patience
