I haven't seen the leak at all, so I can't answer that. Got a sha1 off of it?

Didn't want to lose data, but had sort of prepared for it.

Just flashed the system image. Went into recovery, cleared data/cache, and immediately applied update from zip. Went right through. It's booting back up now.

Thank you again. What a PITA.

I wouldn't have wiped the data personally. But I'm glad you're updating now. Sorry for the PITA process you had to go through.

PROFIT! just did mine

The downside you will have to re unlock (wipe data) and reroot if you want root

I'm trying to follow this to relock my boot loader and it doesn't do anything
This is what it says when I run the command

...
OKAY [ 0.003s]
finished. total time: 0.003s

but nothing happens on my phone.

I know it is connected cause I can do fastboot oem unlock and it brings up the option to unlock but it shows it as already unlocked. I just want the OTA update for 4.3

I was able to take the OTA and never relocked my bootloader.

Default FYI force update breaks stuff

This had issues

connect to your wifi

System setting / apps / all / Google Application Framework

click on all 3
Force stop / clear data / clear cache

system setting / about phone / system updates
click on
check now

found new update
you may need to repeat theses steps

I have TWRP and rooted, and unlocked bootloader
I rebooted after the update

Google play dose not allow me to install or update apps anymore and i am still on 4.2.2 (wipe fixes this)

UPDATE:
ok i flashed the stock recovery back from the dump that i made and the update worked
i had to reroot and i update my "[HOWTO] Root Stock i9505G (Google edition)" to make it work

FYI I NEVER INSTALLED THE LEAKED COPY

I have a fix. I did a little research and found that you can edit /etc/permissions/platform.xml and add a group to WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE

Original:
<permission name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" >
<group gid="sdcard_rw" />
</permission>

Add the media_rw group:
<permission name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" >
<group gid="sdcard_rw" />
<group gid="media_rw" />
</permission>

Done. Doing a TiBU right now to my external card.
This _may_ fix other apps that have issues writing to the card, I personally didn't find any.

Suggest that you do an adb pull of the file for safekeeping before doing this.
If you pull the file, edit it, and push it back make sure the permissions are set to 644.

Thanks to everyone who made this "OTA" happen.
I was able to do a no wipe update to MH1

THANK YOU!! That works wonders! =)

I'M LOVING JWR66V! Even the camera is better. My only wish/hope is for us to store pictures on external SD card.

@faux123 when you get a chance, would it be possible for you to add exfat support back into the stock kernel as well?
i believe it needs to be added to init.rc
Code:
# ko files for exfat
insmod /system/lib/modules/exfat_core.ko
insmod /system/lib/modules/exfat_fs.ko
i haven't taken the kernel apart just yet so that was a stab in the dark. thank you!
