Unhappy [Help] How to install ZIP stock firmware from Samsung

I have a Galaxy S4 i9506 model SHV E300S from SK Telecom (Korea). I can't update it via OTA as I'm currently in the Philippines and don't have a SKT Sim which is required. Kies is also not pushing any updates for me. So I searched the web and saw a firmware here: http://live.samsung-updates.com/inde...vice=SHV-E300S

My question is how to install this firmware to my phone? I only have Philz recovery installed but my phone is not rooted as I don't know why the guides aren't working for me. I also have another problem, as I can't boot to download mode since I have a Philz recovery installed. Please help me as 4.3 is really and eats up the battery of my phone. Thank you very much!

Hi sir, thanks for the reply. I already tried once using odin when I installed Philz recovery CWM. And now that I have to use Odin again, i have to go to download mode again, right? It's actually one of myproblems as I don't know how to go to download mode since i have recovery installed and therefore when I press home + volume up + power button goes to recovery mode... Please help.. Thanks!

Download mode is accessed using volume down not volume up.
