Angry [Q] Upgrading rooted at&t s4 with Kies?

i have a s4 SGH-I337M and i was wondering if kies is still safe to use when upgrading stock firmware? i have already rooted and installed TWRP and i am currently running stock koodo 4.3. also will kies unroot my phone if i use it to upgrade the traditional way?

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.
