Nothing here on my Nexus 7 or Galaxy Nexus yet. Anyone else?
Nothing here either.
Nope not yet. You can download and install the 4.3 factory image but that wipes everything on your tablet.
I'm going to wait for CyanogenMod to put it in for my Nexus 4.
So what is new in 4.3?
Bluetooth 4.0 and other small features. Hopefully better battery on standby but no one can confirm or deny that yet.
Supposedly better touch responsiveness too.
And supposedly a memory leak issue resolved in the Nexus 10, plus now we have Miracast (it wasnt there before). Better overall performance indeed. Awesome update for the Nexus 10, much needed.
Have they corrected the lag issue with TRIM not being enabled?
I've got a Nexus 4 just sitting in a box. Perhaps I'll boot it up, and see what happens.
Edit: System is up to date on my Nexus.
Smart BT (4.0) is the single biggest feature as to why everyone should upgrade. iOS has had this since 2010 for gawds sake!
Multi user sign in has been available since 4.2.x so not sure why they are saying this is new?
Better battery performance will be icing on the cake though.
I'm waiting for Root box to implement it from Cyanogenmod.
How is the Galaxy Nexus holding up?
Can someone report on touch responsiveness and battery life when the update comes? A pocketnow guy claims his battery life had a really big change after 4.3.
Edit: here is the link to the pocket now video. The battery stuff is near the end. http://youtu.be/IKrHNkqw-dM
Do we have any concrete evidence that there are major battery improvements?
Gonna take more than a few hours for people to confirm. In fact, it should take 3 to 4 days for the new kernel to settle in before people can confirm battery performance increases... or decrease... or no change.
I have my doubts on kernels. In my usage of 4 different kernels, they really only helped idle battery drain and thats about it.
Anyone can dl the factory image for your Nexus device, you will just lose your data and have to start over. This might not be a bad thing for some.
I have already dl'd the image for my WiFi Nex7 and will install tomorrow. To tired to mess with it right now.
I would also like to know about the "easier text input" feature Google claimed for 4.3.
I would but that sounds quite complicated, too much coding and stuff ..
why cant u just drag and drop the file to the phone and install ^^
anyone bored enough to write a noob tutorial?
I agree it should be much easier. Installing iOS 7 Beta on my iPad was so ridiculously simple. Just hold down a simple key combo when you click restore in iTunes to choose what file to restore from.
I like it, it's a nice phone. Nice screen but it lags slightly on everything compared to my iPhone 5. I'm hoping that the rumors are true about 4.3 fixing some of that. Plus I don't like the fact that it only has one speaker.
No update showing on my Nexus 4 ATM (1715 hrs UK)
so annoying why cant google just release it at the same time online and u simply "synch" and "install" it to your phone? jeeze
So Google don't actually roll out an OTA update to everyone at same time either ? I thought it was just other android handset manufacturers and carriers to blame.
Seriously with all the blinking servers Google must own how can they not push out the OTA to everyone like Apple do?
At least they have it available to download though which is good.
