    Yes, the important part of the OTA(the radio) will persist even if you install a ROM.

    When you install a rom, you are effectively deleting the current rom on the phone, it's like formatting your PC and re-installing the OS. As long as you have access to a custom recovery, you can install any rom for the phone you want.

    Actually I must forworn against this. I posted in the ROM section, for ICS Roms if you have taken the OTA, and the rom hasn't been updated; then the mainver won't update to ICS and you'll have to McGuyver your way out of it. You might want to check my post to learn more. You can flash Scott's CleanRom 2.3 ICS edition. He has updated it for the OTA.

    You can install clean ICS 2.3 and then install senseless because the kernel is the same.

    Just flash the kernel manually and you won't get stuck.

    My advice...stay on CleanRom 2.3 and run this tool: [UTIL] DeSense & clean-up v5.1 ** [updated 2/1] - xda-developers . It De-senses and adds launcher2 and stock ICS messaging. It leaves some of the bloat of Sense behind but it's a ton more stable than Senseless(no FC's on SystemUI).
