Is firmware downgrade possible to prevent OTA updates?

I have a PW3 that was jailbroken via serial jailbreak, latest hotfix was installed. KUAL is working. The settings menu shows firmware 5.12.2

It's currently on airplane mode, however I will need to bring it online to get removal of special offers. I would like to avoid forced OTA updates when I bring the kindle online.

I've been trying to understand if it's possible to downgrade the firmware to a version where the folder in the root directory trick prevented updates. Is a firmware downgrade possible? From what I've read through searches it seems like it's not, but wanted to confirm with the experts. Apologies if the answer is understood, common knowledge, I'm learning.
