Question Flashing Stock 4.4 FTF on SGP321

Hi
I am using Australian Tablet Z LTE 16GB version (SGP321) and running on the 4.3 and wanted to try 4.4. This is want I doing now.

1. Downloaded SGP321_4.4 10.5.A.0.230_CE1 1272-8686 from one the threads here
2. Downloaded Sony Emma
3. Registered an user and waiting approval

In the meantime, I have few questions to clarify.
1. Will flashing this German version affect my future OTA(s) if any???
2. Should I be worried about anything else?
3. Is there any other tool other EMMA, I can use?

I searched the XDA and not able to find answers exactly.

If you keep your bootloader locked and the ftf is not heavily modified you can continue to update through OTA.

I forgot to answer your other questions,

1- you can still receive ota updates as I said in the previous post. But you will only receive update for the German version (unless you take some additional steps) backup your sdcard and know that all your apps will be deleted

2- just makes sure you know how to flash an ftf. Exclude the ta partition if it exists in the ftf that you have obtained before flashing.

3- actually I think the right tool to use is called flashtool http://www.flashtool.net/index.php
