Default [Q] Note 2 pre-release version: Firmware/root question

Hi there,

I have what I believe is a pre-release (ie. "4g test device) Note 2. It has a serial # stamp on the front top left (and I never received the OTA 4.3 update... i assume my IMEI number was excluded from whatever pool of IMEI's Verizon uses to push updates to). I'm still on what I believe is the stock firmware and I'm finally looking into rooting it and putting a custom ROM on. Unfortunately I'm not well-versed enough to look at the baseband, kernel, and build versions to determine if my phone is truly a stock hardware unit and on the original stock software (in which case I'll just follow the root guides in the Development forum) or if my stuff is somehow different because it is a test device.

Here is what my "About Phone" screen shows:

Model # SCH-I605
Android Version: 4.1.2
Baseband Version: I605VRAMA4
Kernel Version: 3.0.31-886776
se.infra@SEP-110 #1
SMP PREEMPT Thu Jan 24 22:23:50 KST 2013
Build Number: JZ054K.I605VRAMA4
Hardware Version: I605.06

So, based on the above, is my phone the standard Verizon Note 2 hardware and is on the original stock software? I searched pretty extensively but I couldn't find any other thread with this question. If this is out there already I apologize, please link me to it.

Thanks in advance.
