This is a stock non rooted nandroid for Android 4.3 from the Google Edition. I will not be supplying a flashable zip as I don't have the time so either wait for someone to release a flashable zip. I'm posting this so other devs can start working on their custom stuff :)



TWRP Back up (system & boot): https://mega.co.nz/#!aAIgULQK!IJxicTh5qWC8csn3uwY2GmjgAelXttxn5cJNrd2sFpg
(this needs to be unzipped into the same folder on your sd card where your backups are)

CWRM Image Back up (system & boot): https://mega.co.nz/#!KAQDHRBD!VkaAAGPQa1VyLEG2k6qH8Hn1E9N7dN8FGlQ9i-HbpxE
(this can be flashed in CWM it will not flash in TWRP)


Radio (Flashable Zip): https://mega.co.nz/#!HdwxkQqC!TgSeIFmErtLL8iJkpzdR5ThAPn8S0U5BmoEZKrJ_87w

Firmware: This contains radio, Recovery, Hboot and all the other firmware for 4.3 This is not flashable and must be flashed in fastboot RUU mode https://mega.co.nz/#!6M5nCRLD!fAUWUAXWv1Sl-7HAcycrR3oxBQ0_5co3s2N5OCUt-n8


It doesn't matter what CID you're on, If you are running sense, CM, or any other rom. If you are running any other rom besides the Google Edition 4.2.2 rom you will have to perform a factory reset (aka wipe data).

There is going to be nothing maintained in this thread. it's simply for development purposes


4.3 full conversion RUUs now available in both pre rooted and stock non-rooted versions.

Thanks for the zip. Just a quick question though, how exactly is a nandroid different from a cwm zip? From what I've read you flash it just like you would a regular zip, except it deletes all user data and restores it to whatever was there during the nandroid creation?

You place it in your CWM folder into backups then go into cwm and restore. Same for twrp I'm assuming

Assuming all the other steps were done prior to this, correct? I.e. recovery and bootloader.. etc

graffixnyc - so if I understand you correctly (not asking for spoon feeding) I need to root/twrp recovery on 4.2.2, put the file you created for us (thank you) into the TWRP backups folder and restore it from there correct? Just checking.

You don't need to be rooted really. Just flash TWRP and do a back up (just your boot image so it's a quick back up) just so it creates the backup directory structure on your sd card. Boot into android and just put the folder that you unzip from the file in the OP in the same folder /sdcard/0/twrp/backup/HT?????/ folder (you'll see a similar time stamped one that you just made) plop the unzipped folder into there and then reboot back into twrp and restore.

Or you can just flash CWM and then flash that zip like any other zip

Does anyone have the radio.img from the 4.3 dump? Would love to give that a whirl over here in the states, see if anything improves.

    I posted a CWM version that I used the image.zip feature. That CWM zip CAN be flashed in CWM, I'm not sure about TWRP

    edit: Does not flash in TWRP, just CWM.
