    Just bought a GS 4(i9505). Its an EE device which has EE stuff on it. I want to flash it with a generic fw. Here is my phones details below, can anyone point me in the right direction of the correct FW I need??

    This is the latest generic, unbranded, firmware for the UK...

    Model: GT-I9505
    Model name: GALAXY S4 LTE
    Country: United Kingdom
    Version: Android 4.4.2
    Changelist: 481100
    Build date: Thu, 13 Feb 2014 11:47:45 +0000
    Product Code: BTU
    PDA: I9505XXUFNB8
    CSC: I9505BTUFNB3

    This NB8 release is older than the EE, NC4, build. You can flash this using the instructions contained in the link #1.5 of http://androidforums.com/samsung-galaxy-s4/760098-28-galaxy-s4-models-know-yours.html#post6580830

    Alternatively, you could flash the generic, unbranded, German firmware, NE5...

    Model: GT-I9505
    Model name: GALAXY S4 LTE
    Country: Germany
    Version: Android 4.4.2
    Changelist: N/A

    I'm afraid that SamMobile is your best bet.
