    Glass half full, huh?

    Although it would be nice to get the update within the next couple of days, I'm realistically not expecting a rollout announcement for at least another week. If we don't get anything by the last week of August (about 4 weeks from the start of the Nexus rollout), then we can start getting concerned.

    I've been accused of being negative in the past. I'm trying to think positive here. I'd love to see even a leak of a new build at this point.

    There are bugs in the JWR66V S4 GPE leak. I'm HOPING against hope they haven't released it to do a new build that fixes the bugs. Things like TiBU and HBO Go not working. Sim unlock is broken. Samsung also forced everyone to take down the JWR66V leaks, so, maybe they're just trying to protect people from a bad release. I'm trying really hard to spin that in a positive light.
    That's interesting. I wondered what happened to all the leaks. I was able to download the latest one and flashed it through Odin before the leaks disappeared. It runs really well with no lag so far. It was weird because I found the leak buried within a thread on XDA and now I can't find it anywhere.

    They were all pulled before I knew an ODIN image was out there. So now I wait. But yea, Samsung forced everyone to pull it down. I hope they get an official build out soon.

    Who said I'm going to be the brave one? LMAO! I'm VERY happy with the S4 GPE at this point on 4.2.2. I've yet to put 4.3 on any device I own so honestly, it's not a big deal. Especially given the issues with it so far. Root being another problem. I may start checking out some custom roms soon though.

    lmao fair enough. i'm happy too. I got my nexus 7 2013 with 4.3 - seems stable etc., but exactly the same lol. i'm excited for the trim but that's it and i'd rather have allll the bugs worked out to 4.3.1, 2, 3 whatever it takes lol

    Despite all the interesting changes, I've read there are specific issues with apps. Is there any reason to not upgrade immediately when you can?

    I usually defer to brave souls! I will usually wait until it hits my phone versus trying to force it with the google framework trick...

    I'm downloading it now but unfortunately I don't have stock recovery so I don't think it'll install. I'm not sure how to fix this issue, either, so it may be a bit before I'm able to install it. But it's downloading. And guys, I'm impressed. 9 days after Nexus devices? I can certainly live with that! Not quite the week I was originally saying, but, close enough.

    Can take many tries on the clearing Google services framework. I will wait but I think it can take up to 10 times...

    All I did was check for updates and it was available. It's now all installed. I had to do some nasty tricks to get stock recovery back. Lesson learned on that one believe you me. I'm quite sure I've lost root and didn't bother backing it up like a moron. No matter. I'll figure something out.

    I was a little reluctant to get it but took a chance anyway. Even after I got my GPE GS4 I was a little weary as to when the 4.3 update would come. If this is how the updates are going to be handled on Google Play devices then I'm totally sold. Good job Google and Samsung! I'm so happy to own the best stock Android device!
