Sorry I did not mention but that is sadly what most (if not all) custom ROMs does as well. Only an official update roll out from Sinoprima (Sinotec) would be a core update and not a mere tweak. I recently installed a 4.2 Custom ROM on my 2.3 preloaded Galaxy Young (came with a ROM specific kernel). Under the 'About Phone' the version read 4.2 but I still could not run apps that required an Android version minimum of 4.2 and the menu was essentially still Ginger Bread (2.3) though few changes were notable.

Custom updates and ROMs are only few steps better that Launchers and themes which leaves the core menus untouched and add no feature of the version UI they mimic.
