    Is your phone rooted? If not, it's going to be very hard to go back to Jellybean.
    Need more info: What phone do you have ? Carrier/Model? Which messenger app are you using?

    I'm sorry but it doesn't look like you can go back to Jellybean even if you rooted.

    any downgrade from 4.4.2 to 4.3.x? - Page 2 - xda-developers

    hi Tube, that sucks! i had a app that hides your text messages in a private box from google play, it worked perfectly until i updated to kitkat, and i wrote the developer they don't know how to get around it!

    for some reason kitkat makes you use choose what will be your default messaging app, with jelly bean it did not matter, now it makes it not work or you have to use a 3rd party app to get these private texts!

    how i wish i never updated to kk!! :-(

    KK has messed up alot of apps. I know the feeling.

    I root whenever possible because I don't like these OTA/Official updates. The rooted versions are so much better. Plus, you can try different ROMs when rooted

    JB isn't possible to my knowledge. But in place of that route. Try handcent. They have a privacy box feature where you can set certain contacts text messages to go there. You have the option of making it password protected and customize the notifications for those messages or even have no notification at all.
