Android 4.3 is a sweet update. I can't wait until the custom ROMs start to implement it.
Root-Box Android 4.3 anyone? I say in less than a week. lol

XDA will be my best friend these next few weeks. :)
But 4.3 hasn't been pushed to my N7 yet. :/

You can download the original firmware and flash it right away if you want. Did it on my Nexus 4 ^_^ It's now rooted too :D

I don't want to delete everything from my N7 that's the thing. I'm updating the minute I'm able to.

How's the improvement on battery life? Pocketnow mentioned their Nexus 4 saw a huge improvement. Of course that was the leaked version....

Why call it 4.3? Why not 4.13, or 4.1.3? Every prior #.# iteration before 4.2 was a unique update.

4.x are updates that bring in new features whether they include software or hardware support. 4.2.x are bug fixes and minor improvements basically.

What's the name of the game in picture 4? Reminds me of the Gears of War series on my Xbox 360.

So no emojis after all? I don't understand why Google would add emojis to the android keyboard
18. Igneel (Posts: 19; Member since: 23 Jul 2013)
There is. It has a specific keyboard for it included. It's called iWnn IME (Emoji). It contains tons of emojis but some of them are pretty weird. Haven't tested it to see whether it works with other messaging apps.

My Nexus 4 running 4.2 seems to have Emojis. Is that unusual?

Am extremely curious to see how Ingress will run once i get the update what with ingress currently being a huge battery drain.

There's s couple things about this update I look forward to, it's not fluff and stuff for myself.
This will likely be last update I get on my phone once it bleeds through channels of red tape and other hold ups . (2012 One-X)
