Great news I am on 4.3 with root via OTA. Yes it did work!
So what you must do: Flash .534 via flashtool, then root, then OTA (with ota survival mode enabled) to 4.3!
Don't do anything else like disable system apps, only what I said in this post!

Well it worked for me! So if you do what I described there, you will still have root on 4.3.
Ask if you need further help!

Are you sure you have full root? Others have reported that they have partial root and cannot write to system files.
