Default [Q] Updating rooted i9300 to Android 4.3

Hi,

I have a rooted i9300 that's currently on Android 4.1.2. Apparently I can't update it to 4.3 via normal "software update" since it's rooted. How can I update it to 4.3 otherwise? The device is rooted but otherwise running stock ROM.

Thanks.

Or you consider flashing a sammy custom rom, since the 4.3 sammy update is far away from perfect. But there are some devs which improved the 4.3 firmware. So I could recommend you for instance NeatRom a lot over the original firmware, but see for yourself. As I said many custom roms based on the official stock sammy 4.3 are actually a lot more stable, smoother and battery friendly. Good luck
