    I have it as well. Is it really 4.3? I haven't downloaded it yet.

    Yes it's really 4.3. I didn't believe it myself until I checked after it installed.

    Oh yay! Even shittier boot animation!
    At least they put the WiFi back in it's correct place.

    I'm shocked my screen shot worked. All I see is a box with a broken pic or something.

    I read on another forum where, after updating to 4.3 (Verizon S3), the free Hotspot was gone. Can someone confirm this? Gosh, I hope not.

    Thanks.

    Is Knox included? Any root yet?

    Pretty much DONT update if you plan on rooting. Custom roms for the s3 are at 4.4.2 now anyway

    Came from the lg motion a month ago or so. A locked bootloader is a no go for me. I'm on cm10.2 so I have 4.3 anyways. Just like to know what I'm missing.

    I downloaded it. So far I see no more live thumbnails for the videos, and a different looking calculator.

    Edit: I see the live thumbnail, but stock browser sucks

    They just made it look like the s4.

    I really cannot tell of any speed improvements, but I did move a lot of apps to my SD card. Cannot tell about battery life yet.

    Reboot into download mode. If your phone has Knox you will see a new line that says Knox warranty void: 0x0 or 0x1.

    I just downloaded and like it much more. It seems easier to use and we can finally customize the toggle in the notification bar. And they got rid of that little cross hair for GPS which was an eye sore. I haven't checked any things but the menus seem easy as well. Good stuff. I'll keep an eye on this thread and see if people find some cool new features or options. Wow and Verizon actually let us keep blocking mode this time

    I second that. I need Hotspot when I'm in the pocs; can't access internet w/o it there in the boonies.

    They changed the size of the pattern lock grid, I think... Seems that the dots are closer together. I don't remember it having "Draw your unlock pattern" above the grid, and emergency call text area seems larger now too.

    Other than that I haven't noticed anything odd. Finally putting the WiFi toggle back where it's suppose to be is nice...

    Oh... Just realized that the Talkback hand didn't pop up on start up! It had been popping up in notifications on every start up since the 1st JB update on my phone.
