No you don't need to downgrade.

Only if you own a z1 you have to upgrade to 4.3 or your cam focus will be broken.

Dont forget to backup ta partition. Unlocking bootloader will void your warranty and wipe all data in phone.

You can restore ta partition to return back factory state with drm certificates.

to backup ta partition you have to be rooted.
if your phone is not rooted yet, only way is downgrade to 4.2.2, which can be rooted.
