Oh, Android 4.3, why must you tease us so? The new version of Jelly Bean's been making cameos all over the place for a couple months now, so it was only a matter of time until we'd see a build available for download. A working TWRP backup of Android 4.3 just popped up on XDA Developers and Google+ user Jeff Williams recently purchased a Nexus 4 running the new version of Jelly Bean. Some industrious folks over at Android Police were then able to extract a system dump from Jeff's phone (minus radio and bootloader) and confirm that the build is legitimate. Meanwhile, our friend Paul O'Brien of MoDaCo fame is currently testing the TWRP backup. We'll keep you updated as we find out more, but one thing's abundantly clear: it won't be long before Android 4.3 becomes official.

I know it's supposed to be a fairly small release with nothing new but I still want already!

I had it for my S4 briefly, most of the changes were under the hood and not noticeable to the end user. Sadly it was rather unfinished because the phone ran very warm 24/7 and my battery life was abysmal.

Hopefully that will be fixed with the final release, I just about get 15-16 hours with a not a massive amount of usage so I don't need it to die quicker!
