Default Can i change roms with a locked bootloader?

i'm sorry if this sounds stupid but i did look very hard and can't find this simple answer

i have a locked xt1058 which is rooted at 4.4.

kind of sick of waiting for ATT to release 4.4.2 and i have been wondering if i can actually change roms or is root all i can achieve?

There are a few Roms, but not many, and they come with some glitches.

4.4.2 won't change your life....personally I'd wait.

I'm assuming you went the safestrap route, so check the dev section to see what you can use with a locked bootloader and for your phone model.

i know.. i was asking if it's physically possible to change roms on a locked bootloader, if side loading itself is possible in some method?
