Hi everyone. My mom's s4 won't update. I think it's because we're outside of the US. The phone it's unlocked. Do I need to update to every firmware until I reach the desired version? Or I can just put the 4.4.2 OTA on the sdcard and update?

You can just Odin to the latest version. I doubt your mom does rooting or custom roms but that will be severely limited after the update.

Just root the phone not many people are on MDL, I for one am and all I did was root my S4. Take advantage of the fact bootloader is unlocked trust me.

There's people who would die to have a phone on mdl. But I'm sure it's not your mom. If you want the latest firmware see the second post of the attached and flash it with Odin. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=50667360

Lol. Thanks I appreciate that. Getting off topic but as an ex s4 owner I recommend those people to migrate to a nexus 5 or wait until nexus 6 come out. It's a really awesome phone imho.
