Default can I safely update to kitkat?

I have a rooted n9005 that I bought from Brazil and use in the USA on Tmobile. It has 4.2 on it now, but I want to update to kitkat. Can I flash any version of 4.4.2, or will it turn on the region lock if I flash the wrong version? Thanks in advance.

If ur device is SM-N9005, it is an international unlock version of LTE Note 3.
As long as u flash N9005 firmware, u should be fine. Just check ur storage, is it 16gb or 32 gb. U have to flash the correct one. Yours I believe is 32 gb, only hongkong 9005 is 16gb.

And jdomadia is correct, N9005 never comes with 4.2 since day 1. I assume is typo error on ur post.

Thanks! You are both correct: it is 4.3. It is 32 GB. I will do N9005VJUEND1 since it is from Brazil and appears to have no phone company connected.
