    Flashing roms wont change anything with your firmware. Just install your custom recovery and make a nand backup in recovery before you do anything else.

    You need to remember that your bootloader will show unlocked or relocked, so i suggest you go s-off so you can flash a hboot that will make it look stock untouched.

    I'm pretty sure this question is already answered, but if anyone else wanted to run stock Android, you could simply download google's Google Now Launcher instead of having to s-off
