I'm getting a Note 8.0 in a couple weeks, and I plan to root and install a custom ROM right off the bat. My question is, do I need to update from 4.1.2 to 4.2.2 before rooting and installing a 4.2.2 custom ROM, or can I just root on 4.1.2 and go for the 4.2.2 custom ROM straight away? I only ask because in Canada, we don't get the 4.2.2 update and it'll take some extra steps to install Samsung's 4.2.2 firmware manually. I would rather skip that step if it's not actually necessary.

No particular need to update. Just install Cwm, wipe everything and flash your rom (Civz rom suggested).
