Default [Q] ROMs issue

I have an AT&T Galaxy S3 with Android 4.4.2. I used Towelroot to root my phone and it worked really well. My only concern is about which ROMs to use. It looks like most ROMs for the S3 are for android 4.3 and not what I have. Since I used a root technique for an S4 does that mean I should use ROMs from the Galaxy S4 4.4.2?

Any information would be great. I do not want to brick my phone!

NO. You must stay within the roms for your device. Flashing anything else is highly likely to give you a brick.

You have already started out on the wrong foot; these forums are for the Sprint S3, not the AT&T variant. Look for your device forum and you can flash any rom listed, regardless of whether the rom is 4.3 or 4.4.2 based
