Android update aborted and crash

I have a droid maxx and I have apps that will only run on android 4.3 or below. My phone automatically downloaded kitkat months ago and I jist deffer the update. Well i let a friend use my phone and they accedently hit install instead of deffer. So they powered my phone down during the install. Now my phone gives a boot error and goes into service. When i hit boot normal it boots normal and everything works fine for about a minute but then the phone powers off and reboots trying to update again . It is a vicious loop. I k ow the restore partition is dead and I can probably never restore the phone again. But is there a way to stop android from trying to reinstall the update everytime. 4.2.2 still works fine until it goes back into reboot.

Thanks

Bring the phone to your carrier's store and ask if they can fix it - just tell them that it died during the update. (They can reflash the update, so it finishes.)
