Almost all step are same with upgrade, the different is file that you use to upgrade.
use 4.4 to 4.2 upgrade.zip for first upgrade
Use 4.2 upgrade.zip for second upgrade
But you must know, when you downgrade your firmware, the original 4.2 is in chinese, so you need make some adjustment but still it can not be same with your default stock rom.
