Help I want to know if the reverb comes with built in jelly bean system?

I bought the Reverb 3 weeks ago, and it came with ICS. I bought mine from a brick and mortar store though as well.

Stores buy a certain amount of X phone as they are, then sell them over time. When you buy online, it is usually bought and shipped as an on-need basis, so the phone is as up-to-date as it can be.

If you want ICS it would be better to go to a VM store and power a Reverb on and check yourself.

I have a newer Samsung Galaxy Reverb SPH-M950 Virgin Mobile that came with JB 4.1.2 pre-installed.
NONE of the Reverb Roots for JB are working.
I tried reverb-cwm-test-8 and cwm-touch-iconvmu-signed(cwm6030) for the Reverb with no success. I tried different versions of TWRP made for other Samsung phones, with different results, but still no success.
Odin3v304 does flash the recovery successfully, but the previous CWM's made for the older ICS based Reverbs do not boot when i finally get into Recovery mode with the OutOfBox 4.1.2 Reverbs.
Something has changed with the JB 4.1.2 pre-installed Reverbs that is not allowing the commonly know JB roots via Odin.

I really just want to put an older ICS build on this phone because of the TouchScreenLock issues it has with any JB build...
I've had the phone for 2 days, froze on the 2nd day once so far with JB.
I have not disabled Hotword detection.

Anyone had success with newer Samsung Galaxy Reverb SPH-M950 Virgin Mobile that came with JB 4.1.2 pre-installed?
I notice the Kernel Version is dated April 30 of this year...hint?
NOTE: I have not Activated the phone yet (not sure that makes a difference)
