Unhappy [Q] Help! Can't see what kernel I have!

I can't see what kernel I have. I got it in South Africa and got the Official 4.1.2 OTA update (not downloaded from XDA or anything). I still have the stock android Recovery and want to flash another recovery, so I can flash custom ROM's.

How can I find out the kernel version?

You have to see the build number and match it with philz kernel.

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).
