Hey guys, here is a flashable zip for the new Android 4.3 update.

Features
  • Still odexed to keep performance optimal
  • Rooted (Chainfire's special 4.3 SuperSU)
  • Busybox & Toolbox installed & symlinked
  • Added some useful tools such as vim, nano, openvpn, cpustats and more
  • Changed the boring nexus bootanimation to the Google Play edition devices animation

Downloads

GROUPER
TILAPIA
Instructions
  • Wipe /data, /cache & dalvik-cache (wiping /system is recommended, but not mandatory I guess)
  • Flash the ROM
  • If the recovery says the stock recovery might be flashed over and asks you to disable it, answer NO.
  • Reboot & Enjoy

Updating Bootloader/Radio

This is not mandatory.
If you want to update your bootloader or radio (radio is for tilapia only, obviously), here are the images:
You'll also need fastboot for your platform (just search on google or xda, or install the Android SDK).
I will not provide flashable zips for these as I do not believe it is safe to flash a bootloader via recovery (be it by using dd or by copying the raw image directly).
  • To update bootloader (replace XXX with grouper or tilapia depending on your model):
    Code:
    fastboot flash bootloader bootloader-XXX-4.23.img
  • To update radio
    Code:
    fastboot flash radio radio-tilapia-1231_0.18.0_0409.img



Tips
  • Titanium Backup users: Point TBU to /storage/emulated/legacy instead of /storage/emulated/0

If enough people request it I'll do the same for the 3G model.
Enjoy

Oh wow, not only are you amazing for putting this .zip together for us too lazy to figure out how to install the image itself, but if this keeps root, you are officially the best person in the world today. Many thanks.

Nope, if you want to update your bootloader you'll need to fastboot it, I attached the new bootloader to this post if you need it.
The fastboot command is
Code:
fastboot flash bootloader bootloader-grouper-4.23.img

It probably wouldn't boot until you flash a compatible rom
EDIT: actually, the updater-script wouldn't let you install it, it checks in your current build.prop if ro.product.board is set to grouper
