Default Unlocked s4 mini and rom questions

I have an S4 Mini witch i took to a store and got it unlocked ( it says set warranty bit :kernel wen it boots)
It was bought from UK EE and its on 4.2.2 android version
Since i cant update via ota due to it got flagged has modified i have 2 questions

Is there a way to update without ruining the unlocking of the phone?
Or installing a costum rom ( since the original is full of useless samsung crap) without ruining the unlock ?

Best regards and thanks to who can awnser my questions

I think the unlocked state wont change even if you flash a stock rom, dont worry flashing a custom rom those wont change the unlock state of your phone.

You could always get the triangle away app which was made by Chain fire I believe, but check that your s4 mini model is supported before doing so.
