Default How to unlock gsm on 4.3

Hey All
right i have just ordered this sprint s4 Blue from ebay for personal usage internationally
Suppose i get the phone on stock 4.3 , can anyone outline the exact process of how i can get this one to work on international GSM networks.
My fault that i didnt ask the android version from the seller.

with what i have learned : this is how this can work

1.. run knox removal script, i mean remove knox files ( as the phone will be used internationally i am not worried about the warranty)
2.. root the stock
3.. downgrade the modem to MDC ( this i have in a form of one click odin tar )
4.. run the unlock tool and thats it ( that also i have from autoprime)

but i am not able to find the required files which will work on the 4.3

I'd like to know how to do this as well, so I can use a Rogers Canadian Pre-Paid SIM card in my Sprint GS4 and save me a fortune in Int'l roaming (and data roaming) when I head up to BC.

I too am looking for similar info as to if this would work to downgrade my note 2 sch r950 from 4.3 to a lower version that can be flashed or unlocked to work with H20 wireless. They had no problem taking my money and not saying anything about bring your own phone needing to be unlocked. And I'm not even sure if this cdma phone can be unlocked, even though there is note 2's that can be and mine even has sim card slot so lay some truth please
