Phone [Q] very weird firmware numbers for an original stock s4 galaxy i9525

Hi,
My firmware numbers are:
pad:ml2 /phone: ml2 / csc:mk1 (xsi)

Can you please help me understand these codes? as far as I researched xsi should be the country code but I can't fund a country whose code is xsi.

This is an Original Samsung Galaxy S4 Active phone that I originally bought from Duabi.

Moreover, I should be getting kitkated but I'm still at 4.2.2 and kies says no firmware upgrade for me.

All help is appreciated.

XSI is for the United Arab Emirates regional firmware.

You should be update the phone with any unbranded firmware for the international version.

Thanks for the link, much appreciated.
I'm surprised that Kies didn't offer me an update yet, I'm now located in Egypt, maybe that's the reason?

Kies sucks. Manual updates with Odin are 100 times better.
