I have a Galaxy S4 i9506 model SHV E300S from Korea (SK Telecom). Currently running 4.3.
Please give me detailed steps on how to install the firmware i downloaded from live samsung updates for my firmware. Do I have to extract the file and what to do on Odin. Is it also safe to do it via Odin if I have Philz recovery installed but my phone is not rooted? Can I also jump in from 4.3 to 4.4.2 without installing other firmwares between them?Thanks!

I dont recommend u update ur phone to Kit Kat. The final updates arent recognized by KIES. This mean are leaks with bugs. Wait for the OFFICIAL update.

What does your screenshot means? I have tried updating via Kies and it actually downloaded the firmware I need. Isn't it official then? I just can't continue the process as Kies does not recognize phones with customizations or modifications, in my case I have Philz recovery installed as CWM. I want to upgrade because 4.3 in SHV-E300S has battery problems, as it terribly drains so fast!

What I want to know is the exact steps on how to update the phone via Odin IF Philz recovery is installed. Thanks

Thanks sir. Additional question: Do I have to install earlier versions of 4.4.2 or 4.3? I'm currently using 4.3 and I've read from another thread here that I have to install other fiemwares progressively (from my current version to the next and further versions till I reach the desired one) to make sure partition configurations won't go wrong. Can you confirm this? Thanks again!
