Is iphone 5s model NE296LL/A from Koodo support both gsm/cdma or gsm only? I'm confused why my iphone's model is different.

I'm going to request Koodo Mobile for factory unlock maybe next week but now, I'm trying to choose which iPhone firmware file should I use to update to iOS 8.1.2. There are two, Should I use? 8.1.2 (5s GSM): iPhone6,1_8.1.2_12B440_Restore.ipsw or 8.1.2 (5s GSM+CDMA): iPhone6,2_8.1.2_12B440_Restore.ipsw

So, you're restoring a jailbroken phone. If you purchased that phone from Koodo (or any other carrier in Canada), use the 1st IPSW file. Only Verizon/Sprint iPhones south of the border are GSM/CDMA hybrids. Also, the NE296LL/A isn't the model number. There are the various 5S model numbers: •A1533 or A1457 or A1530: iPhone 5s (GSM model) •A1533 or A1453: iPhone 5s (CDMA model) •A1518 or A1528 or A1530: iPhone 5s (GSM model China) Note how Apple has a same model number for both a GSM and a CDMA model. This is taken from their website.
