My guess from looking at these threads is that if I tried to even put the 4.2.2 update for the 5120 on from late last year, it will brick my device since for some reason certain carriers, including all Canadian carriers, have a basterdized version of the hardware.
So it's possible I'm on 4.1.2 forever. But thanks for the reply.
Outside of a few games causing 4.1.2 to lockup or pause... 4.1.2 is fairly good. Though there are some things it does not share with 4.2.2. Until there is an update, you can always do what I have done to my 4.2.2... It works with 4.1.2 as well on the 5120.
Saferoot, and you will not void or cause the system to detect rooting. It leaves OTA and Kies available to update.
Run what I have in my list for signature, and be happy... A great improvement over having a basic stock ROM.
Though editing the build.prop is not difficult, you may want to search as there are plenty of threads with the info.
I use Solid Explorer Pro, though many like Root Explorer though it does not require rooting... if your rooting might as well use Solid, as it works well in landscape mode split screens, or swipe back and fourth in portrait.
