    You'll be able to unlock the bootloader and root the phone. Since you have installed the OTA battery update, you most likely will *NOT* be able to *USE* any of the custom ROMs nor custom kernels. That OTA upgrade installed a version of the radio that causes the phone to boot-loop (i.e. the phone runs for ~30 seconds and then reboots, constantly) with any non-stock ROM / kernels. As far as I know, none of the custom ROM/kernel developers have "fixed" this issue.

    If you flash the original RUU with the old radio, you will be able install custom roms and kernel.
