Why would you take the OTA if you are s-off?

You might be able to s-off with firewater...but taking the OTA you will not loose s-off. I would just flash the firmware and a sense 4.4.2 rom if you flash the Full firmware.
If you flash the modified firmware you can flash any rom.

As far as I know only 4.4.2 sense roms can be flashed.
Others should work fine if the kernel was updated, as the 4.4.2 OTA came with a new kernel.
