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

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?
