Phone [Q] Are 4.4 kitkat roms possible on baseband i535vrbmb1 with cwm?

I have an S3 that I am currently running. SenergyRom 484. Using Android 4.1.2 and CWM.
Is it possible to run one of the 4.3 or 4.4 custom Roms on CWM without locking the boot loader?
Also, is there an easy way for me to update CWM to TWRP 2.0 without using Odin?

To flash a 4.4 base rom u would have to be in the latest recovery. I use goo manager to update my twrp recovery or u can download from there site. If u take the 4.3ota u will lock ur bootloader. Theres a rooted 4.3 that wont lock ur bootloader

Recovery options and install instructions here:

And you can flash any rom you'd like without locking your bootloader.

Thanks you all!
Updated with EZ-Recovery to TWRP 2.6.3.1
Now to Nab a 4.4 ROM - Backing up my phone now -
Will be making a Nandroid backup soon as I get finished copying the SD card contents.

I just got a Note 3 so I will be selling this S3. I wanted to make sure I had a clean rom and rooted for whom ever ends up getting it.
Keeping the unlocked bootloader so they can enjoy custom roms is pretty awesome.

I was just thinking of sticking it on Ebay. Is there a better site to sell it on?
