For my employer, I developed an app which needs Android 4.1.2 to be executed. Some employees will be equiped with S4 GT-i9500. I would like to downgrade those phones to Android 4.1.2.

I need to know if S4 GT-i9500 is compatible with Android 4.1.2 and if the downgrade from 4.3 is safe.

Thanks in advance you for your help.

i think the best you will be able to do on stock samsung rom will be android 4.2.2.

and i am not sure any custom rom developers will invest time in developing android 4.1.2 rom for the s4.

It can almost certainly be said that you can never expect to find a 4.1.2 ROM for GS4 as it had 4.2.2 as it's initial ROM. So the more viable option would be to make your app compatible with 4.4 (to make it futureproof!), or at least 4.2.2!
