Jelly Bean 4.3 Update for Galaxy W
Jelly Bean 4.3 Update for Galaxy W
After Arco68 declared to stop making Android update for Galaxy W, I was so worried if my device can no longer taste Jelly Bean 4.3 Update for Galaxy W. But my worry was soothed gradually when I read a post from xda forum stating that davidteri91 has started making Jelly Bean 4.3 Update for Galaxy W and this is his work. Thanks to davidteri91. You save my device's life.

After being released on July 24, 2013, Jelly Bean 4.3 Update for Galaxy W has been widely discussed whether it is still possible to port Jelly Bean 4.3 Update for Galaxy W. I am so glad that Jelly Bean 4.3 Update for Galaxy W actually cames true and I am going to diliver it to you.

Probably most of you are still wondering what's new on Jelly Bean 4.3 Update for Galaxy W. The User Interface (UI) is similar to Jelly Bean 4.2.2 but there is some improvement on the system. Here I give you the list of new features on Jelly Bean 4.3 Update for Galaxy W.

Jelly Bean 4.3 Update for Galaxy W - Restricted Profiles on tablet

Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Restricted Profiles are similar to Kids Corner on Windows Phone. The feature of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Restricted Profiles lets you manage the apps and content which is accessible on a certain user account.

Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Restricted Profiles enable parental controls, so certain family members are prevented from accessing mature content. 

Jelly Bean 4.3 Update for Galaxy W - Bluetooth Smart support (Bluetooth Low-Energy)

As expected, version 4.3 brings low-energy Blutooth which has been dubbed Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Bluetooth Smart. Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Bluetooth Smart support minimises the amount of power used when connecting Bluetooth accessories and also measures the data being transmitted.

Jelly Bean 4.3 Update for Galaxy W - OpenGL ES 3.0 support

4.3 Jelly Bean adds support for OpenGL ES 3.0, the latest standard for accelerated 3D graphics. Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OpenGL ES 3.0 brings photorealism to a whole new level in the games you're playing: blades of grass on the soccer field come alive, asphalt on the street looks real as you screech by, stubble on a villains' face almost pokes out of the screen.

Jelly Bean 4.3 Update for Galaxy W - Dial pad autocomplete

If you start typing numbers, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Dial pad autocomplete will suggest contacts or numbers to call.

Jelly Bean 4.3 Update for Galaxy W - Languages

Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Language has improved its support – namely Hebrew, Arabic and Hindi. Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Languages enable right-to-left layouts across the platform user interface: dialer, home and lock screens, settings, and more. There's also added support for Afrikaans, Amharic, Swahili, and Zulu in Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Languages.

Jelly Bean 4.3 Update for Galaxy W Other new features and changes

Here's a quick list of all the other tweaks included in Jelly Bean 4.3 Update for Galaxy W.

Keyboard & input 

  • Easier text input - an improved algorithm for tap-typing recognition makes text input easier. 
  • Lower latency input for gamepad buttons and joysticks. 
  • Location detection through Wi-Fi - use Wi-Fi to detect location without turning on Wi-Fi all the time. 
  • Bluetooth AVRCP 1.3 support - display song names on a car stereo. 
  • Disabled apps tab - check which apps are disabled in Settings > Apps. 
  • Restricted profiles - put your device into a mode with limited access to apps and content. 
  • Setup wizard simplification - getting started on Android is easier thanks to the ability to correct previous input, and because of streamlined user agreements. 
  • Faster user switching - switching users from the lock screen is now faster. 
  • Enhanced photo daydream - navigate through interesting albums.
Now It's time to explain how to install Jelly Bean 4.3 Update for Galaxy W. But before that please pay attention on this note.

Your warranty is now void. I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

Ready? Let's go.
