If you use the stock google 4.2.2 images, it doesnt matter what you currently have....you would be replacing it.

if you are trying to run an OTA file, then it might matter....

you should stop.

just stop.

go read what root actually is, then come back and look at your question.

THIS very thing has been asked 100 thousand times in these forums.
