As I understand it, that is a 4.4.x loader while the telus loader we have is for 4.3. Does that mean that it won't brick the phone to update because it is to a higher version? Since the bootloaders actually came out around the same time I am not sure what constitutes an upgrade/downgrade. Sigh, why did they make this so troublesome!? I actually tried flashing I747MVLUEMK5 from recovery but it won't allow it because the downgrade safeguard doesn't recognize this firmware. I am tempted to find an odin file and flash via that but the warning scared me and I'm not sure if it will brick. Could someone chime in on if this is safe and if it is, where to find the odin files? Is it possible to flash a recovery zip via odin? I don't think so.
