Flash a recovery of your choice...via odin
I prefer philz touch recovery...
Go in recovery and backup your current rom... in backup and restore options to ext SD card so that it remains safe when you flash a new rom after factory reset...
2.. Backup efs by any tool available.. There are many on play store...
K tool, neat efs tool etc...
And same thing... Keep it at some safe place so whenever needed it can be used..
3..of course you could upgrade to 4.4.2 if you like.. But as Samsung hasn't released 4.4.2 for s3 so no Samsung features with 4.4.2 as of now...
But 4.3 us available and it's quite stable...
But before flashing any 4.3 Sammy rom change your modem to any modem which is mg4+... read about that on xda..
Always have a legitimate backup in case anything weird happens...
