I have a Galaxy S4 (I9500) currently in 4.2.2 rooted, I want to update it to 4.4.2 Touchwiz (OFW) and i want it to be rooted.
So what should I do?
Should I remove the root first and then update it with Odin? Will I lose my data/apps in result of this. I don't really want to lose my stuff too. (Altough most of the stuff is in External SD, i still have saves and stuff which i would prefer not to loose.
Also my device is currently rooted, what should I do to update it?
Also a last question, does region matter? Do I really need my current region's firmware to be installed? Or just any region would be ok?
I'm a not really a tech noob, I just don't really have enough experiance over this Android stuff.
I live in Turkey, my device was imported and registered to passport. It does not has stuff like simlock, I can use any sim.
