I would advise you to first go to About>>Software Update and check if their is any official firmware for your phone. If there isn't, then proceed to rooting your phone through ODIN and then select your favorite rom from XDA forums and flash it! WELCOME TO XDA ROOTED USERS GROUP!

And yeah, you may flash Official firmware but not from other carriers because they have different hardware dependencies.

I forgot to mention that I am already rooted! The only reason why I need to update to the latest version is because my data speeds are terrible. Hopefully, the latest update will fix it.

Bro.... if you're already rooted, then you will no longer be able to flash official OTA updaates that are provided by your carrier. BETTER look out for custom roms.....
