You cant downgrade to Kitkat.
The Kittkat firmware won't work properly because they're not for your variant.
You'll have to revert to Lollipop

Theres a way you can deal with the lollipop firmware drop your whatsapp number
And for the custom recovery we will inform you as soon as we can find a way around it since your phone has been rejecting most recoveries ported already

You'll need to revert to lollipop first then provide your scatter file and stock recovery.img for that
