You can't install AOSP 4.4.2 , you have to unlock your bootloader.
Roms you can install with locked Bootloader : Cm10 related ROMS and Stock based Roms

u can install after unlock bootloader.u can relock anytime anyways,so go ahead and try the kitkat.dont use as daily driver if u need camera and video recorder.both work good but no good as stock.cm10 has been made to work with locked bootloaders.so there are some cm10 based roms that u can try with locked bootloader.just read before u flash happy flashing new roms.its fun
