Question [q] sgh-i537 (4.4.2)

Okay. So I recently updated my Galaxy S4 Active, SGH-I537 from 4.2.2, to 4.4.2.
After doing so, I decided to take a turn, and root my device. I used the new popular method, TowelRoot.apk
I was able to successfully root my device with a breeze, then I looked up some recovery's for the device. I found this thread on the website on specifically the S4 Active. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2387980
My confusion at this moment is, it seems to be everyone who updated there S4 Active is now on Samsung-SGH-I9259 but yet, I am still running on SGH-I537. My phone's version is 4.4.2, but it isn't I9259, how does one fix this issue?

SGH-I537 is the model for the US, SGH-I9259 is the European model. They are not interchangeable.

You will need SuperSU and Busybox before safestrap will install properly.
