Default Should I take the upgrade on MI1

My S4 shipped with mi1 however I immediately rooted and frozen sdm
Now since there are safe root with the latest ota, should I update or not? is there any chance that unlocking bootloader on MI1 would be easier than MK2 or they are essentially the same?
This locked phone is really frustrating
Samsung Galaxy tab 7 1st Gen Verizon AOKP milestone 6
T-mobile Optimus t unlocked on Att GenetICS 9.1.7 + New baseband
Nook HD+ CM10.1 for Ovation
HTC Droid incredible 2 with S-off Phycho's CM9.1
Verizon Galaxy S4 Stock MI1

I only have a few days experience with this, but in everything I've been reading, there's nothing really past MDK that works with the recovery images...think we're stuck with MK2 until the pros figure it out.

Safestrap 3.7x works with JB 4.3 ROMs so you can Rom away.

Have to agree with equake here.

You're already past MDK, so AOSP-based ROMs are no longer an option while the bootloader is locked, BUT there are several good ROMs available for booting from Safestrap.

Lots of them listed here (try Verizon GPE and HyperDrive first):

Just a side note.. Hyperdrive 12 only works on Safestrap 3.71 which is either mj7 or mk2. And us 4.3 users really only have HD 12 and maybe a couple others to choose from currently. No GPE as that was on 4.2.

Again there are people working to bring more roms our way on 4.3 you can find them in the dev section and Eclipse is gonna be coming soon for us to I hear.

There's Omega, darthstalker, foxhound and Hyperdrive last I checked.

ImO Hyperdrive and Foxhound are the ones to really check out.
Not a huge difference option wise... Hyperdrive and foxhound seem to be tricked out the most. I'm a Hyperdrive man myself.

If you are already beyond MDK, the only reason not to upgrade is no method of root or getting back to stock.
Right now not an issue.

I was rooted on MI1 just went directly to MK2.
