Help Stock firmware question

Okay, great. I should be able to upgrade back to 4.4.2 OTA after, right? If I go to upgrade software in phone settings, will it prompt the 4.4.2 upgrade?

Yes this is correct,But be sure to remove your sim card while flashing back to the stock firmware,As it will wipe your sim card clean.Then put sim card back in when your done flashing,Because you will need it for the OTA updates.

Sorry to disagree AMOCO, but you can't go back.

If JimKnuckles flashes a 4.3.x ROM (any 4.3 ROM) he will end up with an irreconcilable bootloop. This can only solved by flashing a ROM with a version equal to or larger than what he was trying to downgrade from in the first place. (ie 4.4.2 to 4.4.2 or 4.4.4).

My bad,Don't own a Note 3.Just going off of what I read from the web.
