Samsung Galaxy S4 I9505 Original

I am having the problem of not seeing the option in Network menu to enable 4G/LTE. I am running 4.3 right now. Our service provider Ooredoo in this country (Maldives) has released 4G and several others with the same model phone as mine can switch to 4G. I was wondering if there is any fix for this. I did hear about rooting the phone and deleting a file to fix this problem. I can't find out which file. and I have already downloaded a 4.3 firmware that said would fix the problem and flashed it. But there is no change.

And I am looking for the 4.4 Official Firmware for Galaxy S4 I9505 which can be used in my country.. Maldives.
And also is it possible to Downgrade the phone back to 4.3 after I flash 4.4?? From what I know so far it isnt.

I will post more information about the phone soon. Don't have it atm.

Thanks for any help you guys can provide.

1. Install Kies 3. Look for the 3 letters btw parenthesis close CSC. It will give u the code for know what firmware you have to download.
2. Go to Sammobile.com, log and sig in (pic 1)
3. Look for your firmware and download it
4. Flash it through ODIN like in the pic attached 2
5. Enjoy it

Alright so I was directed to a firmware on Sammobile

/firmwares/3/?download=27582

Model: GT-I9505
Model name: GALAXY S4 LTE
Country: Unknown
Version: Android 4.4.2
Changelist: 481100
Build date: Wed, 19 Mar 2014 10:39:06 +0000
Product Code: OMD
PDA: I9505XXUFNC9
CSC: I9505OMDFNC1
MODEM: I9505XXUFNC9

Does the country being Unknown have any effect on the firmware? The I9505XXUFNC9 firmware is said to be the international one but there is one on Sammobile that has country/carrier of Russia.

Thanks.
