Default [Q] KitKat Roms in the Dev Section

I have 2 questions about flashing a KitKat rom from the dev section.

1. Will I be able to go back to a Jellybean rom if I want to?
2. Once I have upgraded to a KitKat rom, will I have to use odin everytime I want to flash a mod or can I still use safestrap?

Thanks in advance for your support.
Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

Thanks a lot graydiggy. Although I did a lot of ready up on my questions, I still wanted to ask just to get that warm and fuzzy lol.

I have read somewhere or I thought I did at least, that safestrap will not work with kitkat roms because it hasn't been updated yet. I went ahead and flashed X-Note 12 and sure enough safestrap doesn't work.

Now that I can't flash, how do I install mods now????

It tells you how to get safestrap working in the first post of that rom's thread...................

Go to http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2654992 and look in the very first post for
INSTRUCTIONS FOR FLASHING ANYTHING ON TOP OF ROM (WITH SAFESTRAP):
