Well. I went for a leap of faith. After backing up my phone with TWRP I decided to use Kies to update my phone with no issues. Now I'm at 4.4.2 with out root. Dose anyone know how to root and install TWRP on the baseband I337MVLUEMK6? Or to downgrade to 4.3?

Did you try to root with Kingo root and install TWRP as usual ? I don't know much about Canadian version of S4 but I think you can downgrade using odin.
