My S3 is on 4.3 FW. However I would prefer to run Darthstalker 4.12 as some apps do not work in 4.3.

Unfortunately my camera does not work with that rom. I suspect thats because the camera has updated FW and the libs/drivers in 4.1.2 cannot connect to the camera.

Before I go through the trouble, I have a flashable camera zip and I am thinking of taking the camera files out of a 4.3 rom sticking them into the zip to flash them. My other idea is to simply replace the files in /system.

Will this work? Or is there a better way.

Any advice would be appreciated.

What is your Current Rom version and how did you apply 4.3 ? Was it via the Stock OTA Update or another way ?

It was a insurance replacement phone, so it came preloaded with 4.3. However I would like to use 4.1.2 Darthstalker x2 because of the theme and some app compatibility. At this very moment I am using S3rx 4.3.

In that case, there's no way to downgrade without hard bricking your phone.
