First off , correct me if any of what im saying is wrong. IF u updated via OTA to 4.3 then u cannot go back to 4.1.2? Something about knox. I never did an ota upgrade , i just flashed a 4.3 rom .. now i wanna go back to a 4.1.2 rom (better batterlife) but im not sure if i have to or can Odin to do so or if i can just flash a 4.1.2 rom Via Philz recovery.? My phone is rooted and bootloader unlocked since 4.1.2.

Do not use odin to flash roms....use custom recovery if you are bootloader unlocked.

same as above, only use odin if you want to back to stock factory.
since your bootloader unlock, just find a custom based 4.1.2 rom and flash it via philz, cwm, or twrp.
