I should note i got the phone from Australia, however i cannot see Australia in the firmware list for GT-I9505.
Just an update.
Not sure if its possible to flash to 4.4 because I've just been on SAMMobile.
Clicked on FIRMWARE
Then clicked Check Your Firmware.
Which i did. The phone is unlocked so i just chose vodafone.
Then it directs me to a 2013 update which is android 4.3.
So does that mean i can't get one for 4.4？
Hi mate ,
For Australia seems like the newest firmware is 4. 3 but you can flash a firmware from other " similar" countries like UK , check other countries that you may consider closer to yours
BTU means unbranded
Model name: GALAXY S4 LTE
Country: United Kingdom
Version: Android 4.4.2
Build date: Fri, 14 Feb 2014 03:15:30 +0000
Product Code: BTU
Language is similar and if the modem gives you problems ( it should not) you can always flash ( odin) another the only thing you may lose would be maybe any specific carrier service that is on your current carrier rom you have in your phone and your CSC will be from UK ( in this case)
