So i was looking to maybe upgrade my kids G Stylus from 10 to 11 re-root etc etc. ( runs a bit slow and laggy sometimes ) Then i see this option in the Retus list??
Anyone try it even though it say XT2043-8 and we have XT2043-4 I was curious if its compatible etc ( i mean its listed in the same sofia list ) as all other roms???

Also leaning towards the 2022 G-Stylus with 8gb ram ( any thoughts) BUT this maybe a cheaper quicker fix / upgrade before buying her a new phone

Use the RETAIL one, which is compatible with 2043-4 if you want android 12:

The xt2043-8 one is not a real retus model (it's actually sold only in non-us markets with TD-LTE networks) and has different hardware/modem from the actual retus xt2043-4 model.
All set she now has a G-Pro running A12 with no issue so far and Android Auto wireless works much much better
one thing since A12 has more battery optimizing stuff built in i had to kill of a few otimizer apps seem they were fight the system

Root was same as before so no problems so far

she still liked the 2022 5G Stylus with 8gb Ram so that may happen but not such a rush now
