Just stop thinking about the bootloader lol you only need to be concerned about the bootloader if you're going from fresh, out of the box S3 to rooted and unlocked bootloader prior to flashing a custom rom OR if you accepted this 4.3 OTA (because the bootloader is locked). Generally the build number and the baseband will match. Pretty sure that's what you mean. The build number is which OTA the rom is based on. The bootloader is of no concern for you so long as you continue to flash custom roms and ignore OTAs.

Ah I see. Makes sense.
Nah I was actually curious about the bootloader, but your post makes sense. Seems like as longs as it's unlocked, not to worry about it.
And yeah I understand the build number, and I just updated my baseband. I suppose I'll start looking into flashing some newer ROMs.
The only thing I noticed was that I have to update my CWM to flash any 4.4 ROMs. So I'm gunna look into that.
