With the KitKat Kraze (sorry, I had to) in full effect, you’d be forgiven for forgetting that other versions of Android do indeed exist—namely Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, a version that some OEMs are seemingly going to skip, in favor of direct updates to Android 4.4. However, this doesn’t stop firmware leaks from appearing, and who are we to complain!
XDA Recognized Developer Faryaab has posted the leak to our forums, courtesy of Sammobile, along with simple instructions on how to get it up and running on your device. The build is intended for the international Galaxy S III (GT-I9300), and it brings many new features that were previously seen in official capacity on the Galaxy S 4 and Galaxy Note 3, as well as the leaked build for the Galaxy Note II. Surprisingly, Knox is not yet implemented in this build. However, it’s highly likely to be included by the time the final build ships.
Make your way over to the leaked firmware thread to get started.
[Many thanks to Faryaab for the heads up!]_________
