Leaked T-Mobile Moto X 4.3 Dump Appears, Now Flashable
Good things are happening to the Moto X. Not too long ago, we talked about how XDA Elite Recognized Developer jcase released the PwnMyMoto Write Protection Bypass for the device. Now, we are happy to report that a leaked Android 4.3 dump for the device has appeared.
Before we get into the leak, let’s rewind a little bit to the device’s launch. While the device is inherently exciting due to Google’s direct involvement during development, many were saddened to learn that it would launch on an earlier version of Jelly Bean, not the recently released Android 4.3. That said, we knew it wasn’t long before Googorola shared the tastiest flavor of Jelly Bean with its subsidiary’s newest flagship.
While 4.3 still has yet to come in official form, those wanting to get an early taste can do so thanks to XDA Forum Member TheOrangeRemix, who came into possession of a recent Android 4.3 engineering build for the T-Mobile Moto X. From there, XDA Senior Member jimmydafish turned it into fastboot flashable boot and system images.
Naturally, as this is prerelease, do not expect a completely bug-free experience. To that end, user reports seem to indicate that the official 4.2.2 ROM runs faster. That said, the engineering build seems to carry interesting camera tweaks, as well as the expected benefits of 4.3 itself.

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
