How can I find out the kernel version?
If you have a terminal app installed (like Terminal Emulator), you can run the following command that may tell you more about what kernel is installed:
$ getprop | grep -i kernel
Note, this doesn't work for all ROMs, but for an official 4.1.2, it should work. If you don't have a terminal app, then you can also use 'adb shell' to run the same command (if you have the Android SDK installed on your PC).
