Default OTA on rooted international s3 -, help needed

I've just revived an OTA on my rooted international Galaxy S3.,

It says in the "Update Details" *You cannot downgrade to the old Software after this new software upgrade, due to the security reason.

This makes me think there going to lock my bootloader or something and if that's the case I'll just delete the update and change the phones internal settings so it won't download OTA's.

Recently I've been keeping my phones pretty much stock, a few small tweaks and a few apps that require root,

I'm thinking it will probably just fail the OTA update with the phones status now saying / being modified.

I've also got Mobile Odin installed with enable Everoot, Inject SuperSU and Inject Mobile Odin.

Has anyone been through this ( Int SGS3 Stock Samsung firmware, rooted with chainfires root software - OTA to 4.3 from 4.1.2 if you have how did you get on ??

Any help greatly appreciated.

OTA will fail if you have rooted. If you want to update to 4.3 then best results come from wiping, format internal storage then flash MK6 via odin.
