Default 4.1.1 to 4.1.2 rooted update?

I have a verizon Galaxy S3, I535. its rooted. I'm running 4.1.1 and verizon sent out a OTA update last week. It won't let me update through that otherwise I get a message saying "software detected that shouldn't be used, take to nearest verizon store" so what are my options to get to 4.1.2?

You cannot install the OTA update with a custom recovery. You need the stock recovery, take the OTA update (losing root in the process), then re-root.
Orrrrrr,
Find a custom rom with the OTA goodies baked into it
See this for a small list of roms that some clown put together based on the 4.1.2 update:

You will have to replace CWM with the Stock Recovery, then it should work.

Why do you regret it?
Here is a link for the stock recovery, and instructions on how to install it.

Hi, thanks for the link. But this is pre-4.1.1 . My phone is on JB and im afraid this could brick it. The odin file i just downloaded is for 4.0.4 . I regret it because it severely slowed down my phone and I have no idea what im doing when it comes to Android. If it was iOS, i can use iTunes to correct any mistake. However, there is no itunes in android and therefore you are on your own.

Well, it should work with that recovery. And the only reason I say that is because it is the only thing I could find and others have linked that also.
Now, you can go into your custom recovery and wipe cache and dalvik cache, then reboot to see if the lag goes away.

Wiping the cache and dalvik cache will not wipe data, so you are fine there.

I used the DE ODEX file, http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2178482
But have moved to Liquid Smooth ROM 4.2.2 since then, no more Touch Whiz ROMS for me, they are nothing but a lag fest. If you have any more questions let me know, if you need guidance I will help you step by step.
