Default Question about ota update

I took the ota for 4.4.2 and I was wondering if I backup the stock ROM I am on could I install other Roms from the development section?

If you are talking about custom ROMs, I believe it should be possible. I haven't taken the 4.4.2 OTA update yet but I haven't seen or heard of anything that would preclude the flashing of custom ROMs. Of course, you need to a lot of research on customs before flashing and, especially, be sure they won't attempt to mess with you bootloader. Most custom ROMs don't touch your bootloader but it's still important to make sure.
