Info 2 [Q] Update to Official 4.3 via Kies (or other)

Its to my understanding that samsung released the 4.2 update for the galaxy note 2. I have the international verison. When I connect my device to kies it doesnt recognize my firmware version. I think they have been rolling out based on country my concern is that because it is an international verison and the only news that I've heard about the update for that note 2 in the U.S is the carrier verisons, is there a way to update officially?

Wait for it to come out for your country and flash it with odin.
You can check here: www.samfirmware.com/ or here: http://samsung-updates.com/

Keep in mind that you will get the new KNOW boot-loader and the up-mentioned update is 4.3 not 4.2.x

I9505 - TW 4.4.2
P3110 - CM 4.4.2

I forgot that 4.2 was skipped. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll keep a look out.

Is there any issue of I download firmware from sammobile for India region and install on my note 2? My phone is rooted. Please check the attached picture for my build and details. Little guidance is appreciated as I'm still newbie.
