Before updating the bootloader beyond 4.1.1, unlock your phone using the free method, flash a custom recovery, then the custom ROM.

If you want to know if a particular ROM needs a specific bootloader, look at the updater script in the ROM itself for supported bootloaders.

Before updating your you should be aware that you cannot down grade your bootloader once you are on the 4.3 bootloader, this does affect which roms you can run. Do a search on 4.3 bootloader there are many threads with very good info on this topic.
