Hi all, I have not touched my S4 (i9505) for a while and still running stock rooted 4.2.2 with (wanam) Adam kernel 1.6

Now I want to flash stock 4.4.2, can I use mobile Odin? Will my phone be REGION LOCKED ? I don't care about Knox. Thanks

If you say untouched, means not rooted? Mobile ODIN needs root access.

And some part will NOT be flashed by mobile ODIN, you have to do with PC

Hmmmm, for stock firmware I don't think so, mobile ODIN will flash, but some of part like bootloader it won't flash. And I am not sure if it's working on 4.2 bootloader.

Personal suggestion is that you flash recovery and then using recovery to flash KNOX-free ROM
