Default OTA Issues

Can anyone confirm that the upgrade from 4.3 to 4.4.2 is safe when using the renamed CFG file instead of doing the OTA? I would like to try out KitKat but I don't want burn-in and an unresponsive touch screen.

The 2400258.cfg IS the OTA just not in the form of a tidy set of ODIN files as many are accustomed to. It is perfectly safe and I've personally flashed it several times as have many others successfully as is well documented in Sunderwear's 4.4.2 root thread.

I have tried to search for this but am confused. Can somebody confirm if I can install this file by renaming to update.zip and installing through the recovery. My config: i537 with 4.3 ML2 rooted, Knox apks removed. No additional mods. Appreciate the help in advance.
