JRO03C.I9250JPLH2

Now whats the point here .. ?
how to update the device in this situation

It would support JRO03C... in the 2nd screenshot (below the two videos) in the post u can find that it supports JRO03C (it's at no. 5 under the list of device model & build)

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.

that's why I've told you that you don't have to root for updating to stock 4.2.2
