i could be wrong,tho... trying it shouldnt cause any harm. if it doesnt boot,then youll just have to pull the battery,and relaunch recovery to fix it

after some thot,here is what you should do:
-reflash GB backup and take OTA
-restore current backup(dont reboot after)
-wipe cache and dalvik cache
-reflash rom

relflashing the rom without a data wipe should preserve your setup,and replace "/system with old firmware patch" with fresh /system install,ready to run on new firmware

Sounds like a plan. The OTA has released, but doesn't appear everyone can grab it yet, I will try this in a week or two and let you know what happens
