A nandroid is a good backup, we have complete system tars of our last few android versions available in case of anything catastrophic. In fact, I can't think of any posts that spoke of any issues you won't be able to recover from. There's an update comming, to 4.4 for our device (tmobile got theirs already) soon hopefully. When it does, I'm sure someone will snag the tar for that update as well. There are some things you should know before updating about the bootloader updates and KNOX if you don't already. Check out our UATR post for that info as well as some recovery and Tmobile roms that definitely work for our device.
Do you have an S4 for metro? What ROM are you using?
