and to add to this, to find all relevant info on your build I believe you can find it in bottom left when you boot into fastboot/bootloader
which is done by holding both volume buttons and power button down all at the same time

I think I may have screwed up pretty majorly,
I rooted and installed cwm as usual and tried flashing updates but that didn't work
Then I decided that I would install a custom ROM on it which I wasn't going to, so now I'm stuck as I wiped data and tried flashing both pa and slim but both failed, I assume this is because of an older version of cwm which was used because it was needed to flash the updates.
So now I am stuck without an os and when I boot it just goes through the Google logo twice then goes to cwm.

What is suggested for these situations aha? Thanks

Just use adb sideload. Saved my ass a couple of times too.

Thanks but I found a really good method on XDA because I believe it was soft bricked. I used Odin to flash stock 4.2.2 and that got rid of root and custom recovery. Once that was done I then updated to 4.3 in the settings via ota

Thank you for all you help
I have no idea about any of this adb sideload stuff so I'll learn about it before I screw up next time aha
