    You will get OTAs still if you unlock/root, so long as you don't alter the system or remove any system apps.

    You can wait for the OTA or flash a ROM.. If you want to flash I suggest waiting a bit until source-built ROMs are available. The current batch are ported ROMs which I would not recommend for a person without experience, lol.

    Jelly Belly I would say.. They are all about the same, IMO. Check the stickied thread on top "Jelly Bean Now".

    TR4NSCEND is pretty heavily themed. Lots and lots of black. I tried it earlier, and I hated it.
