    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

    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...

    I'm afraid that SamMobile is your best bet.
