Default Is klte the same with SM-G900F

Hi! Sorry to be a bother. I would only like to ask if my S5 variant is the so called klte? I saw it on the other threads, but hesistant to flash.
A little confused with the term. My S5 is a SM-G900F. I am already familiar with this recovery with the Galaxy S3 & S4.

Many Thanks!

BTW: Are there any current issues I should know?

Actually, I can't find the past 3 backups I made! I'm not sure what exactly is the issue. I have about 4-5 backups there, but the dates are off. They show January, and this TWRP wasn't even available back then. So what's going on? What am I missing? And why did it not write the backup to the SD card since it showed success?
Found it, they are in a folder inside TWRP/BACKUPS

Yeah, that's where they should be, both on the internal memory and the SD card unless you customize that path yourself.

However, my problem still remains and I think I found out why. It has been overwriting my backups due to a bug that TWRP exhibits: it can't set date/time correctly.

Right now for example it's saving my date in backup folder: /external_sd/TWRP/BACKUPS/<id>/2014-01-23--18-06-31 KOT....

The time displayed above is 6:17PM right now, which coincides with army time 18:00 hours.

Normally the minute and second would make a difference, but who knows, maybe it took me the same amount of time to slide to backup as it did before it happened to be overwriting, because my other backups are nowhere to be found. I've restored each one of them, and all are older versions, not the one I know I backed up specifically.

You hear me TWRP devs? You have a bug in this version. Check for date/time bug.
