Default [Q] can I use official OTA zip to update my phone?

I'm currently on cm10.1 with s-off and unlocked.

just wondering if I can use the JB OTA zip file from ruu.androidfiles.org to bring my phone to official JB. If yes, can I just load the zip file in TWRP and flash that way? thanks!

If you do it may lock your phone back down and I don't know what would happen if you flashed a sense based update to an aosp ROM.

Just flash a stock rooted ROM posted in Development.

Simple rule, don't install OTAs on a rooted Android device. At minimum, you will lose root.
