Your version is displayed in settings - > about.

But doesn't matter. If you're on 543 you can root with vroot or 360root or kingo root.

Then backup your ta-partition. Last thing: unlock your device via flashtool.

After that you can use fastboot to flash custom kernels, boot to recovery and flash custom roms

I followed NUT's tutorial, and when I downgraded I lost my SIM card, rooted and then upgraded. Once I upgraded all returned to normal and my phone is working. Give it a try and do not get mad about loosing SIM...
