Hello guys. Wonderful community have recently decided to make an account as I have run into a problem with my s4.
It was given to me when my girlfriend got a work phone. She flashed it to custom firmware .
I have tried to get the recent update for my phone but am unable to as it has been rooted. She didnt keep the backup firmware before she flashed it....... Is anyone able to point me in the direction of firmware for telecom s4 i9505 that is able to be updated.

Many many thanks

You'd have to flash that with Odin on the PC. Make sure you read a guide, it's not difficult but there are a few things to be aware of in Odin.

Interesting thread here too. What version of Android are you on, 4.2 or 4.3?

If you're on 4.2 and want to keep root and not have Knox you might try the WanamLite ROM. I did it last week (was a bit nervous) but it went fine. Same as stock but with a few performance tweaks and without knox. Strangely wireless charging is MUCH faster now.
