No it will not harm your device but you have to make sure you know what you're doing. I recommend waiting for the update to get released in your country and download it over the air easier.

if you want a decent upgrade wait for your country .. if you want it so bad download the firmware of the countrey near you to get a good signal BUT i have to address the following
-if the firmware isn't for your country it will work 100% but in wcdma you may lost h+ connection (will remain h.. not sayin it will but may do that.. didn't happen to me thankfully but some guys reported this)
-upgrading to official Sammy kitkat will upgrade to Knox 2.0 so YOU WILL LOSE ANY WAYS OF DOWNGRADING AND YOU WONT BE ABLE TO GET ROOT EASILY !!
whats your model ? i9190 or i9192 or i9195 ??

Just look for a good tutorial and carefully follow every step. It's not that hard, and if you make no mistakes, you'll have your phone running Kit Kat normally.

Do this, the latest one. http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/3/?download=35478
The country thing won't change anything.

You are able to downgrade to 4.2.2 in the i9195 version, but I am not sure about the i9190 version. Be careful. Be sure what you are doing when flashing with Odin.

Good Luck.

Press THANKS if I helped!
