Default [Q] Which firmware update to download for Kitkat 4.4.2?

My region (Singapore) hasn't gotten a official update yet. Which firmware should I download to flash via odin? And will such flashing break the knox counter?

You can flash any firmware that matches you variant, & no it will not trip your Knox.

I thought country code also had to match, not just the model version.

Running the us version in Europe. Works just fine but I think Samsung is working on a new build with Bugfixes since it's been over a month now since the initial few 4.4.2 builds came out.

Your signature states that you have the WiFi model. I can see why the ROM region would be less consequential in that case.

I doubt that degree of flexibility extends over to the the models with SIM slots such the SM-P605.
