Ok so i am on 4.3 with bootloaders and modem, with a 4.3 rom

is it safe for me to flash a 4.1.2 rom and still keep the same modem and bootloader.

so for example i am rooted running a stock rom with a custom recovery, and i want to flash the rom 4.1.2 Axis (SDS) rom will it be safe for me to do so or do i risk the possibility of bricking my device.

NOTE:

I have bricked my device and used a method posted i think in the general forums of the gs3 to unbrick it, so if possible don't want to go through that experience again if you know what i mean

Yes, it's safe - Just make sure you don't flash a older modem/baseband or bootloaders. Although, there's no reason to go back to 4.1.2, it was awful for our device. Then again, it's your decision!
