Download root checker app (the one with the blue android) from the Play Store. It will give bootloader info. Or use adb.

Synapse (which comes pre-installed with the CivZ ROM) also shows the bootloader version under "INFO & REBOOT".

I think @CCallahan already gave you the official way, which is the "bugreport" ADB command:

There's a bunch of stuff that dumps after that so be prepared to do a Ctl-C break after the initial information is displayed or you'll lose it when the command line buffer overflows.

Edit: I found these variations of the "adb bugreport" command in a post on another forum:
Quote:
You can try if on windows :

adb bugreport | find "bootloader"

or if on linux :

adb bugreport | grep bootloader
Those commands will save having to use Ctl-C to stop the report if you are only interested in the bootloader version.

Thanks for the reply guys,

I just got my note 8.0 recently and it was on 4.1, I have now officially updated to 4.2 as the french version has not had kitkat update yet.

But don't think I will update to kitkat officially due to knox, so for now i'm going to leave it on 4.2, root it and flash withs civs rom.

Do you reckon thats the best thing to do?

Yes. Avoid the KNOX KitKat bootloader as long as everything works without it.
