After some research. I had determined that article to be false. Those builds for the Verizon note 3 are 4.3. I went to the download link which led me to the user who posted it. @DutchDogg54 is the contributor to that download. I checked his name here in the forums and confirmed, those are older 4.3 builds.

So. That being said, don't flash them.

Hope this helps.

Yea I saw those there is another link in the article that says it's for a kitkat download and I opened that link and it takes you to a download that's labeled recovery.tar not sure what's it's all about but I kind of figured it was bogus since I'm sure it would have been here before I posted the link

Yes, that site is posting bogus info. There is no 4.4.2 update for Verizon or several other variants. He has heard from me about this and about linking directly to my files which is a no-no. Sorry that you all had any confusion, but that's unfortunately what often happens around major version releases - people try to boost their sites click count by posting false information. Shame really.

To find all current and relevant information go to a trusted source - my thread in development - bold link in my signature.
