Have a Verizon GS4/SCH-I545. Build is MDK, JB 4.2.2. Device is rooted, OTAs are blocked, etc.

Want to change my ROM but don't want to lose root/unlocked bootloader. Also, SD card doesn't appear (i.e., this was before Samsung changed it, so any time I try to move an app to SD, the option doesn't even show. Any time I want to use ROM Manager to install a ROM from SD card, I can't even put it on the SD first).

Ideas on how to get a new ROM on my device without a) bricking b) losing root and c) losing bootloader? Should I use ODIN? Directions on how to do so without screwing it all up?
How do I get SD functionality (it reads media on the SD from when I pulled it from my old phone)?
Which is ROM is best (i.e., most functionality with fewest bugs) for my device?

Advice is to read these forums and look at YouTube videos

I can't say which ROM is the best. There r many good ROMs but depending on ur taste and style. I really don't like aosp so I dislike aosp ROMs but I love tw. So its up to u. But if u like tw hyperdrive is the best tw rom.
