    Don't flash it, it has a locked bootloader and is different from the other bootloader of 4.2.2...

    Are you rooted? Custom recovery?

    It won't take if you have a custom recovery. I have one and I tried to take the update but it didn't take. Took me to CWM and I chose "install untrusted zip" and it just rebooted. Still 4.1.2 and still rooted.

    Yeah, I'm aware. That's what I'm trying to find out so we can get to a solution. If you update OTA, you'll install Knox boot loader(which you're stuck with). If you want 4.3, you can always flash a Knox free version while rooted through CWM.

    Oh I meant to quote the person above you instead of your answer. You obviously knew that. Sorry man. But yeah I think I might check out 4.3 via how you suggested. Do you know by chance if the battery life is any better?

    Stock TW Roms are pretty much all going to have so-so battery. There's nothing custom on this build, but you can get rid of alot of the bloatware that runs in the background. That will certainly help.
