First of all,4.4 roms available right now are only for unlocked bootloaders
before unlocking your bootloader,take a backup of TA partition (this helps to relock it in the future)
Also before flashing the new rom take a nandroid backup of your current rom (this will help you get back to your phone's current state if u wish after using any other roms)

Nandroid backup is needed to return back easily to your current rom
Its not necessary to make but i still recommend to have it in case you face any problems with the 4.4 roms
