I'm on SCH i545 4.4.2 Build NC5
#1) There's nothing you can do until a Root Method is achieved for NC5. It's probably going to be awhile. Look at the Galaxy S5 forum; high bounty for root on that device.
#2) Once Root is acheived then my guess is Safe Strap will be the mechanism to boot into recovery for flashing Rom's.
#3) FWIW you should NEVER take any OTA's from the carrier unless you can settle for a locked down bloated OS. Just keep tabs in these forums and hopefully our trusted Dev's can find a solution......
