Default [Q] lost backup 4.1

Hi guys, For some reason I lost my 4.1 back up. I'm on 4.3 and custom recovery. Can I just flash the stock 4.1.2 back to go back to 4.1.2 or am I stuck with 4.3? Thanks

People have been flashing back to 4.1.2 without problems.

Are you sure? Cause I thought you were supposed to make a backup of 4.1 before flashing 4.3?

That's so you don't lose your setup.

Read around and you'll see MANY people have restored back to 4.1.2

In fact it's in the thread you got the leak from. ...

I was on UCAMH3. I couldn't find the stock rom of that version. Is that ok if I downgrade my phone to ALJ2?

I plan to flash custom rom due to Note 3 features.
I am worried about backup and restore issue.
I hope that you can solve the problem.
