Hi,

I'm currently running jellybean 4.3
AP:N9005XXUBMJ1
CP:N9005XXUBMI6
CSC:N9005OXXBMJ1

I want to update to 4.4.2 Kitkat, but I'm not sure which firmware to download on sammobile site.

How do I check what country my firmware is from?

The firmware doesn't have any carrier branded stuff which I would like to keep.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Cheers

Install 'Phone INFO ★Samsung★' app and you will get all info you need.

- To check what country your firmware is from: under the CSC INFO section.
- To get the right firmware to download on sammobile site: enter the Menu --> Firmware Browser...

Download link in my signature.

Thanks. I just realised that I'm running Australia (which is where I'm from) XSA software. latest version is 4.3.... is it worth using a different countries firmware?

Is it risky?

I have root currently and my KNOX is 0x0 and I'd like to keep it that way.. I want to have 4.4.2 unbranded with root.
Any recommendation on which version I should download? and instructions for root?

does KINGO android root trip the KNOX counter?
