Default [Q] Installing Telus ROM on Fido Canada

Hi,
I am planning to install Telus rom v 4.2.2 on Fido S4 which is on Android 4.2.2 Baseband i337MVLUAMG1.
I have unlocked (SIM) the phone using unlock code and Rooted using CF auto root.
Have TWRP installed. Have made nandroid back up.

So here are the steps I am going to follow.
1) Download Official Telus Firmware (4.2.2 AMG) from sammobile.
2) Wipe to factory default using TWRP.
3) Flash Telus firmware 4.2.2 using Odin.
4) Root the phone.(CF-Auto Root)

Can someone please tell me if this is OK?
Are there any chances of bricking the device if you install telus rom on fido phone?
Just want to make it sure before I proceed.

Don't have to install new ROM for. Just dial *#272*your imei# and select tls for Telus
You click OK and your phone will reboot and install everything Telus.

Thank you very much. That worked like a charm.

One more Question. In future which version I have to select for updating to 4.3? Fido or Telus?

Doesn't matter which one. Just use that code again to what carrier you want. All stock 4.2.2 and 4.3 are the same . They only install with the carrier you phone is coded like the csc code ( costumer sales code)

But just go with Telus if you want just to be safe and that code doesn't work on 4.3

What was the purpose ?
I wish fido had BT tether option but it does not...
Was this the reason by any chance ? Telus offers it ?

Thanks

I guess I need to wait cause don't have telus firmware downloaded.Sammobile is re-uploading all the firmwares on to other file sharing site since hotfile is no more. Any other site I can download the firmware from?
