Let me start off by saying this. The android 4.3 leak the GS4 has in incomplete (it is after all a leak). It does not have any 4.3-specific goodies, it is very similar to 4.2.2. It does have a new camera, though, but the Google Edition 4.2.2's for the S4 and HTC One have this camera as well.

Samsung has also implemented SELinux in a way that it blocks root access (though strangely enough not to ADB).

EDIT: Samsung only seem to block their leaks/beta's while the releases are ok. Do you think they do this to ensure that they can't be rooted, so they can gather our reports on how they are? After all, some root-related activities may or may not affect the performance.

This is what I've concluded by reading around here and there and also based on what Chainfire has said.
I'm only responsible for what I say, not for what you understand.

Phone: HTC One | S-OFF Galaxy Nexus (temporary)

Can I add that the 4.3 leaks will be almost impossible to successfully port due to them being compiled for a completely different hardware spec (chipset, gfx, camera etc).

It may be possible to port and get it booting and a couple of functions working but this would be a long and pointless endeavor

Always read the OP's of a thread and the last 2 pages before asking questions, unless there has been an update - in which case, read the last 5 pages!

nexus 5 | SlimKat | ElementalX kernel | Philz Touch Recovery

I do NOT reply to support queries over PM.

well im not an very developing advanced user but i think if there is not even the official 4.2 released for the s3 . making and 4.3 based would be a VERY hard work to make it full operative. i think istead of trying this difficult work, there should be someone figuring out how to unlock the internal storage blocking issue (obb folder for example) that you can't copy anything in it without and third party app. sorry for my crappy english hope u get my point.

Yup, by the time we get anything working, official 4.3 would be out. Plus, we wouldn't get much from porting anyway since it barely has anything new yet

The changes are under the hood, also why should Google change the UI in 4.3 when 5.0 is just around the corner.
