How can I check if I got the MDK version... It has Kit Kat on

FIRMWARE INFO

Bootloader Version:
I545VRUFNC5
Baseband Version:
I545VRUFNC5
PDA Version:
I545VRUFNC5 / I545VRUFNC5c
CSC Version:
I545VZWFNC5

I am trying to find out if I can install TWRP instead of Safestrap and try to run something like Cyanogenmod

Thanks in advance

I think I might have found my answer .. according to http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Install_CM_for_jfltevzw

its says

WARNING:

This guide is for advanced users and does not come with support. It is provided as a means to install CyanogenMod. A working adb connection as well as adb being in your PATH is required for this guide and users should not proceed without this. Additionally, you must be on build I545VRUAMDK or this will not work. In fact, if you try to use this method on a newer revision, you will almost certainly brick your device. Seriously don't try it. Downgrading won't work either. If you've updated, a qfuse is already tripped and any attempt to downgrade will also result in a brick.
You can check what build you are on in System Settings > More > About phone > Baseband Version


Can anyone confirm this?

Your bootloader is nc5...means you are not MDK

Yes, confirmed. Trying to flash CM will brick your phone.
Consider reading the sticky threads in this forum before you flash anything, as you're asking a very frequently asked (and answered) question.
