Default [Q] Can I use any country firmware on a factory unlocked int. Note 3?

Hi, can I use any country firmware on a factory unlocked international version Note 3?

I rooted since last November, with no issues since then, but yesterday I noticed that root access was not working anymore. I'm on JB 4.3 now and maybe I will upgrade to KitKat 4.4, if this is possible, since the phone is for Nigeria and there is no update yet for that country.

Model SM-N900
Baseband N900XXUCMK1
Kernel 3.4 39-2217357
Build JSS15J.N900XXUCMK2

Thank you for your help!

I would think so, just have to make sure the baseband is compatible with your provider.

ODIN flash the KKrom of your choice. As stated by hey_joe, just make sure you cn use the basebands with your carrier...

In theory you can but (no matter ignorant people say) if you look around here this forum is full of people that soft-bricked their phones with strange upgrades - most notably updates of Note 3 phones for Hong-Kong and Nordic EU countries using the XEO first KitKat ROM.

Thank you for your replies, I'm trying to do it with the stock firmware, actually I'm on stock right now, I'm OK with stock Rom, whatever I want to change is accomplished thru Xpose Framework.
