Default Trouble flashing CM11 M2 to i9500

I know where to get the CM ROMs since I have flashed a device once before (the i9300) and was able to use it without any issues after the rooting and flashing process, but I have a weird issue...

I have the latest CWM installed (via terminal app command to install the .img) as well as the unofficial CM11 installed (found on these forums, thanks!) BUT...

I go to the downloads for the jfltexx (says international version, which is correct since I have the i9500) but when I use it with CWM it stops the flashing process because of something similar to it being the wrong version (think it said Verison's? i9505 or something like that).

I am really confused right now, and yes, I have the correct CWM installed for i9500 as well for my device for my device otherwise this unofficial i9500 ROM wouldnt of been able to be installed, I guess.

The reason I would like the M2 is because this unofficial version seemingly doesn't have the OTA update function seemingly to work (for anything, even nightlies, and yes I have internet cause I was able to go on any website. I have tried all the options, even the refresh button, no luck), not sure if M2 has the function working, but its worth a shot or if one of you guys could let me know if the OTA update feature is working.

If you guys could let me know whats going on, that would be great! I also want to know what is going wrong because when and if CM 11 becomes official, I fear I might run into the same issue...

Your move.

That's actually where I got the current unofficial ROM I am running.

Just got more info since I tried it again, here is CWM's output when trying to flash:

-- Installing: /storage/sdcard1/cm-11-20140104-SNAPSHOT-M2-jfltexx.zip
Finding update package...
Opening update package...
Installing update...
This package is for "jflte, jfltexx, i9505, GT-i9505, jgedlte, i9505g, GT-i9505g" devices; this is a "ja3g"
E:Error in /storage/sdcard1/cm-11-20140104-SNAPSHOT-M2-jfltexx.zip
(Status 7)
Installation aborted.

Weird...

http://download.cyanogenmod.org/?dev...&type=snapshot it says its for a Samsung Galaxy S4 (intl) device (aka the i9500, which I confirmed in the settings) so I am confused. I tried out other builds other then the M2 and same error.

**EDIT** Also, I looked this up: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Unoffi....28GT-I9500.29 apparently there is a international LTE version, I think that's the issue. Mine is just international without LTE. Oh well, this solved my issue. I just have to wait to see if and when this becomes official or keep my eye on the thread that @ice.modding mentioned. Thanks all for helping anyways!

Your move.
