    Hello there,

    I own a Samsung S4 Mini I9190 unbranded from United Arab Emirates, using Android JellyBean 4.2.2.

    AP: I9190XXUBNA1

    CP: I9190XXUBNA1

    CSC: I9190OJVBNA1

    I am unable to make the KitKat 4.4.2 update since apparently it is not available for such region. However, I came across this article on the web:

    update-galaxy-s4-mini-i9190-xxucng1-android-442-firmware from Team Android (sorry I'm not able to post links yet)

    The author claims any unbranded I9190, regardless the region, should be able to perform the manual update to KitKat using the firmware provided:

    Model: GT-I9190
    Model name: GALAXY S4 mini
    Country: Russia
    Version: Android 4.4.2
    Changelist: 1995154
    Build date: Thu, 03 Jul 2014 03:51:09 +0000
    Product Code: SER
    PDA: I9190XXUCNG1
    CSC: I9190SERCNG1

    Is it safe to try it out? I have already backed up everything.

    Is there anything I should know about? I don't feel that comfortable with using an update intended for a different firmware.

    Thanks a lot for your time.

    Welcome to AC
    If you have backed everything up, you can now flash that firmware using Odin. If it is not for your intended model, it might brick it though, so it's up to you if you want to risk it.
    But from looking at the model number, it looks fine.
