Android 4.3 update for international Samsung Galaxy S III leaks
posted by Alan F. / Nov 03, 2013, 2:59 AM
Because the firmware will wipe your device, make a backup before proceeding. And while it is not an official release from Samsung, installing it will not void your warranty. What you will find is that the UI has been changed to the one used on the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with a new tabbed interface for the Settings application.
The launcher and widgets remain the same as the ones used previously on the Galaxy S III, and secure business application Samsung KNOX has yet to be included in the test builds of Android 4.3, although it is expected in the final build. If you can't wait for the official release, click on the sourcelink to install the leaked Android 4.3 update for the GT-I9300 version of the Samsung Galaxy S III.

Whoa.. you are using custom ROM!! I have been looking for you for such a long time. Pls pls tell that the custom ROM can cure cancer. I know that, many people told me that once you have custom ROM, you are like GOD-mode. This is exhilarating stuff. I was told that even Einstein never used a custom ROM. You must be someone very special.

Have you heard of a company called SONY? It updates 6 months after Samsung does.

How is SlimBean 4.3.1 build 2? Bugs? Annoyances? Been rather hesitant on trying it until I know it's ready for daily use. Still using Omega ROM 4.1.2

Other than launcher redraws (despite keep in memory checked or even Nova's hardwired screens - these can be drastically reduced via memory locker) and some slight annoyances (no separate display timeout setting for lockscreen) - it's great! When not overheating my SGS3 can easily have 3-4 hours of screen time + 20 - 30% battery left. Much much much better than 4.2.2 Can't wait for 4.4! :D

I'm selling my 2 international S3s as soon as my Nexus 5s gets here. Also ordered some fathead Nokia DT900s to go with them.

Good choice on the pillows, although I doubt you have to worry about the 5 scratching like the 4 did. The Fatboy combined with the DT900 is my favorite wireless charger, to date, and it's a lot cheaper than the Nexus wireless chargers.
