How do you go back to 4.3 after taking the OTA and then rooting it? I dont want to brick my phone. I have the 4.3 stock rom from sammobile that i could flash using Odin but not sure if that will work?

Best practice is to flash custom recovery then a custom rom. If you try using odin or other methods then an issue may/can arise. If you only flash custom roms you will have no issues with bricking hard or soft.

I used Odin to do a complete restore back to 4.3. I like a fresh start, seems I have less issues that way. Worked great then I rooted with cf auto root, then back to smoothest rom 2/3 imo.
