Google is yet to release Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, but this doesn’t mean that the OS version is not out there. It’s not anything official, but the leaked Android 4.3 firmware has already been rooted.
I guessed it, the source can’t be something else but the XDA-developers forum. And the author of this root is no other than XDA Elite Recognized Developer Chainfire, who has succeeded in adapting his SuperSU root application for Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
The software is working on the Google Edition of the Samsung Galaxy S4 that runs Android 4.3 OS, version which leaked a couple of days ago (JWR66N.S005.130625). There is no need to say that this is the first Android 4.3 root available.
Chainfire says on its Google+ account that he isn’t sure of the protections are included in Android 4.3 or are just Samsung’s work, but the root needed “quite a few mods to SuperSU.” Nevertheless, he mentioned that all the features work just fine, so those of you who own a Samsung Galaxy S4 and desire to install Android 4.3 Jelly Bean on it, you should know that the device can be rooted, as well.
Of course, we remind that installing a custom ROM or rooting your device can be a tricky process if you don’t know what you are doing, so bear in mind that you are totally responsible for what happens to your smartphone or tablet in case something goes wrong. Still, if you want to do it anyway, and I don’t see why not as it’s your handset and you can do whatever you want with it, it’s always better of you back up all your data before you start. Also, if you follow the instructions of the developer you should be fine.
Anyway, we are still waiting for Google to officially roll out Android 4.3 Jelly Bean so that everyone can enjoy it. Until then, you can download the rooted version from HERE.
