Im just now after reading countless threads wraping my head round this device. Its way more complex of a situation then the note 2 (previous phone).
My understanding is that we stay away from anything loki'd.
2 days in and im still not comfortable flashing any rom 4.2 or 4.3 lol. Another day or two of reading :-\

Ponder that, a canuck is less subject to tyranny? Your bootloader isn't locked? NICE! AT&T has degenerated from American Telephone and Telegraph into a globalized melting pot of greed and required upgrade costs and technical support that uses broken English spoken by people in India. You Canadians luck out this time!
I jumped in with motochopper to get root back in May and had the AT&T Software update service frozen with Titanium Backup back in June, I was so lucky to be "on top of it" by reading this forum. I used "Casual" to obtain TWRP 184.108.40.206 a custom recovery. I've never seen it so easy. After burning an image 3.56 GB of my stock firmware, I have since deleted it from my handset and replaced it with a nandroid of my daily driver here because GoldenEye is flawless. I saved a copy of the stock firmware on my desktop computer just in case, but I doubt I'll ever flash it and all of it's horrendous bloatware.
So I'm a happy camper, that only suffers the jone'sen for a fix as a "flash junkie". I will try CyanogenMod on this S4 after they iron the kinks out.
