Default Touchwiz 4.3 (VRUCML1) update discussion thread

DO YOU WANT 4.3 WITHOUT LOCKING YOUR BOOTLOADER OR KNOX? DO I HAVE A LITTLE TREAT FOR YOU: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2591895

We now have a safestrap! Mind you its an ALPHA and should be used with caution there are currently NO Roms that support it but it does have TWRP. So backups are possible. Read up and download here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2605648


Now that the 4.3 update is out the old thread isn't very accurate.
So I'm making this so we can talk about it!

Rules:
-No spamming
-Be nice
-HAVE FUN

DISCLAMER FOR TAKING THIS UPDATE: your bootloader will become perminantly locked after updating. So if you are fine with no more Roms or Kernels then update away. any rooting applications other then the one listed below will cause hard brick. any attempts to downgrade to MF! HARD BRICK

Some general info on the update rooting ROMs and such

Useful information:

Default Emoji Input

View Changes I don't like:

On/Off Button uses words "on and off" instead of the sign

Emojis have changed and they look worse than 4.1 (IMO)

Cannot swipe left (or right) to access lock screen camera (3rd app must do that)

No Swipe to Unlock with passcode on

Not sure many actually "installed" the OTA, think most are waiting for beans and them to crack it open.

You may want to retitle this thread as "TW 4.3" since, you know, 4.3 existed on AOSP for some months.
