Angry May be a dumb question?

If I took the 4.3 update and Im on a custom unlock according to bootup, am I able to do anything as far as custom recovery's and or rom's? Im a flashing addict and I fear that taking this 4.3 update has screwed the potential I used to have lol. I know there are forums on the update and some news but I'm trying to get it narrowed down could someone be of assistance?

The only recovery you can use is safestrap and the only roms you can use are TouchWiz 4.3 roms.

Yup your screwed. Everyone says you can use tw roms but u cant. Ohh you can root and put safestrap on it. And create rom slots but when u flash one it just goes to a black screen. So yes. Your flashoholic days are over my friend. Trust me. Im stock now. 4.3 JB. Yup. Randomly shuts down, freezes, battery last about an hour. Throw your phone as hard as u can at a verizon rep

Where did you hear this? I highly doubt we're going to get the update, even if the international version is going to get it It'll be months afterwards before Verizon even thinks about pushing an update to us. They really have no incentive to push a kit-kat build to us.
