Default [Q] update from Poland 4.4.2. KITKAT to German version

Hi,

I am now on the 4.4.2 from Poland, rooted, no CWM, everything runs fine. I was wondering whether I could switch to the new German release. OTA says "System modified", Kies says "This is the newest firmware".

So, is there a way to switch or to set the system status back to official to get OTA update?

Thnx
HTC One (M8), Stock Rom 4.4.2, Sense 6,0, not yet rooted / unlocked / S-Off
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, (8020) LTE/WiFi, Stock Rom 4.1.2,
Unfortunately still have the
Samsung Note III, Stock ROM rooted, Android 4.4.2, + Galaxy Gear Black
which is pain in my a.. because Samsung spoon-feeds and patronizes me with Knox. Wanna have it? PM me!

Just reflash the Stock ROM so you're unrooted again, you can use Wanam to get Official status, however you won't be able to install the OTA update but it will download.

Ok, but...

- if I flash stock rom from Poland, I will loose all data? I have flashed with the one-part-rom from Sammobile.
- I could also flash German Kitkat directly instead of the original Polish rom. Will that erase my data?


.Could anybody please provide the German update (Kies) for me to flash via Odin?
