hey guyz my gf is using s4 from past year now, and it is still on android 4.2.2 (screen shot attached for details)

shes having problem of updating it to next versions of androids 4.3.x, 4.4.x

when we try to update from samsung update (setting-->about-->software updates) it shows up to date

when we try to install via kies it shows latest firmware installed.

You have some options:
1. Flash a custom firmware through custom recovery.
2. Download the latest firmware and flash it through ODIN. For know what firmware is the best for you, conect it to Kies and tell me the 3 letters close to ur CSC

Download 4.3 Here
You Want to download 4.4.2 you will need to signup to www.sammobile.com
then enter firmware section then search for your device in search bar "GT-I9500" then choose country and download

PS: if you dont know how to flash VIA Odin Search XDA or Google it
