    If I have rooted but didn't install custom ROM, what should I do to keep the phone rooted? Or is the method I use to root also applicable once I update to 4.3?

    I'm not certain about the gs4 but with the ONE I had to flash the new super user for 4.3.

    Here's the thing. If you installed custom recovery (twrp cwm etc) the ota update won't install. You have to restore stock recovery and that is a fairly daunting task. Even I was a little nervous as if you do it wrong you can actually brick the phone. Chain fire says that moving to 4.3 means that you have to install root clean... Iow voodoo may not work to protect it. So once on 4.3 you'll need to install custom recovery again and flash the latest su zip from chainfire. I haven't done that yet. I was hoping to extract stock recovery from 4.3 but I need root so it's a catch 22. Weighing my options on how to do that.

    I'm still waiting for my 4.3 update. Last time I did the force update trick with my Nexus 4 it killed my gps in google maps and I had to wipe.

    I have a Nexus 4,7,10 and the S4 GE and I always get updates very late.

    If it borks your maps you can clear the data and cache for the maps app and it should reset.

    Another day no update. I think if I don't get it tomorrow I will try and force it. I'll just back up with helium first in case anything goes wrong.

    In case this is useful, there is a way to work around the 4.3 issue with not being able to write to the microSD card from some apps. You have to be rooted to use it. It's been working fine for me. Here's the URL for the information:

    Why wait? Root and install a 4.3 ROM. Isn't that the whole point of buying a Google Edition S4? And I guess people still don't realize Google Edition is a TW NOT AOSP.
