Thanks!

Last night I tried to downgrade without knowing about this thread. It went into a bootloop like you said

Now I have just flash 254 based on your post - viola - it is loading even as I type...

Mucha gracias, arigato, thank you, nandre, mercy...

Edit: don't know if it's just my phone or because I have not installed any third party apps - it is fast! Faster than 4.3. Some things are missing though, but I can live without them (say "auto brightness").

Now to root it...

There is no way. But I think you can download the update before you install it? I have never tried it..

Did you unlocked your bootloaders by following Doomlords tutorial? If yes you would have read some things about TA partition and backing it up. The same is with restoring and unlocking.
