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.

Head over to the leak thread to learn more. And if you’re looking for the images themselves, head over to jimmydafish’s post.

Earthquake Early Warning in Your Pocket

Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
