Hellou,

Recently I bought Samsung Galaxy S4 I9505. Unlocked and updated to KitKat 4.4.2. It was used i CH for a very short time, but now, it will be used in BiH. Somewhere I read that KitKat was distributed for different regions, so as phone is moved from CH to BiH, I want to do fresh install of KitKat.
From where should I download appropriate KitKat and what is the easiest way to install fresh KitKat, and also root my phone?

Informations can be seen in attachment.

And KitKat 4.4.2 is not yet available for BH Telecom. Assume I should downgrade my phone to 4.3, as it is last version available for BHT.
But I read about many problems with downgrading from 4.4.2 to 4.3

What should I do?

1. Unlock ur phone thorugh IMEI. You can find a lot of pages in Internet that do this cheap.
2. You cant downgrade ur phone without millions of problems (signal lost, no sound, no wifi, random reboots....). Dont do it

I messed up updates related to regions and operators. My phone is unlocked as I mentioned above, so I can use my BHT card, so you can ignore my previous post. But what about updates? I must wait every time those updates for CH region?

Can someone give detailed explanation what these distributions according to region mean? Why there is not ONE OFFICIAL ANDROID DISTRIBUTION for specific phone model?
