Here’s the screenshot that shows the software build info once your device updated to Android 4.3 (M919UVUEMK2)
You can download and install the MK2 update through OTA (over-the-air) or by using Samsung Kies. The file size is around 781 MB, so it might take an hour to download and install.
For those who have a rooted T-Mo Galaxy S4, keep in mind that the 4.3 update now comes with a new secured bootloader. As the KNOX is being implemented, you are about to compromised the KNOX warranty void red-flag if you’ll try to install root, custom recovery and any unsigned firmware files. You cannot also downgrade back to the old software build version since the implementation of the new bootloader is quite sensitive and might results to unwanted soft-bricks. Anyway, if you ain’t not care that much about warranty, then you can still root and do whatever you want to your device. But if you messed-up something then you’ll probably pay the damages for repair once you send it back to your service center.
