I've seen various methods for rooting this version 4.1.2 (15.1.C.2.8).
What's the simple/best?

I'm on 4.1.2 (15.1.C.2.8) and my carrier doesn't have another update.
Should i flash the last 4.3 version or stay with this one?
I've heard people talking they have problems with this last versiin, battery drain, heating...


I'll answer both of your questions here.

For rooting I've always been fond of using Cydia Impactor, installing BusyBox and then using the Mount Reboot Fixer by [NUT].
You can also use the Framaroot Gandalf (I think) exploit, install BusyBox and then use the Mount Reboot fixer.
I suppose towelroot would work, not sure of the procedure for that on 4.1.2.

As for upgrading it is your choice, I get better performance on 4.3. However it does come with bugs what can only be fixed by rooting (you'd either have to use the method by mbc07 or towelroot).
The only two bugs I've come across are the processor heating up (I've managed to get it to 65c-71c) and the theme bug where you cant install them.
It also appears 15.4.A.0.23 is more stable than 15.4.A1.9 from what I've seen.
