I think as long as you don't have a custom rom on it should be OK
But not %100 on that

Has anyone posted a flashable zip version of the OTA for the unlocked/dev version?

You need to have a 100% stock system (bar root), including the stock recovery and kernel, to flash an OTA as it requires the stock build to be able to upgrade it. Root files are additional so aren't checked, although you'll probably have to re-root the phone once the OTA is complete

I have got a 100% stock phone apart from soff and unlocked bootloader...but kindly tell me that using the ruu updates avaiable here in some threads work? As they are of 45mb while the ota update is off 119mb..does that mean to get a full update feel ill have to flash a latest update custom rom with this ruu update?..ive been using nexus 4 before this so kindly excuse the complicated querries !

If you're just S-OFF/unlocked but otherwise 100% stock the OTA will be fine. There are no RUUs available yet bar the Sprint Harman Karmon one - hopefully more will arrive eventually
