Default (Q) please help a retired customizer out

I have been basically flashing KitKat ROMs this whole year and due to life events have gotten fuzzy on the ins and outs of flashing OTA's. So here's my question/favor...

Can someone please tell me what I need to do to install superlite ROM? I THINK I have an unlocked bootloader because I am on ML1 firmware. I just keep seeing warning signs saying if I'm unlocked then do not install the NE1 based ROMs... I truly just want to get back to touchwiz and am thinking I will brick my phone if I even try ...

I figure this has been answered, but I'm so confused that I am asking for simple step by step instructions to go from SlimKat 7.0 stable on my Verizon S3 to the SuperLite rom

You would need to be in the stock, VRUDNE1 4.4.2 OTA before you could run any VRUDNE1 based rom. The firmware on the VRUDNE1 update actively prevents it from booting on mismatching or older firmware. So you'll need to 1) Odin VRUCML1 4.3 and OTA to VRUDNE1 or Odin VRUDNE1 2) use Towel root to get root access 3) use unofficial Safestrap tool 4) flash Super lite using unofficial Safestrap.

Once on VRUCML1 stock OTA or higher, there is no bootloader unlock. There is no more using AOSP. There is no flashing custom kernels.
