Question about updating to KitKat without losing wifi hotspot....

Hi Guys,
Quick question(I hope)......I currently have ROM Manager Premium v5.5.3.7 installed on my phone and am using Cyanogen Mod. I Have a Samsung Galaxy S3 (Sprint), SPH-L710, Android 4.1.2, MD4. I am tired of the incessant reminders to update but I don’t want to lose my wifi hotspot ability.

It appears that Cerberus 2.5.1 on ROM Manager will work with the update so now I can finally update to KitKat.

My question is…should I do the update THEN go into ROM Manager and install Cerberus? Or install Cerberus THEN do the update? I am limited to the ROMs that are currently available on ROM Manager since my charging port is broken on my phone. If there is another program similar to ROM Manager that I can download with my phone without having to connect to a laptop, don’t hesitate to let me about that also.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, just want to confirm what I think I should do before I actually do it since you guys know a lot more about this than I do. Thanks!
