Update your Nexus device to Android 4.3 manually
While Nexus users may be happy to know that they will be the first to get Android 4.3 OTA updates, all the users will not be getting them immediately. Even though Google has started rolling out the updates, it will take some time before everyone gets it. However, impatient fellows can just download the factory images of Android 4.3 for Google and flash their devices.
Google currently has Android 4.3 for manual download for Nexus 4, Nexus 7 WiFi, Nexus 10 and Galaxy Nexus, currently running stock Android 4.2.2(JDQ39) only.

Only people on stock Android 4.2.2 should follow the methods below to manually update their devices.
- The “adb sideload” method will help you move to Android 4.3 if you do not have any custom recovery installed. However this method is bit tricky, follow the guide here by droid life carefully.
- If you were not successful with the “adb sideload” command, you can use a custom recovery (TWRP or ClockworkMod) and flash the images. Use this guide.
- If you have already tinkered with your device and have it rooted, just flash it in recovery with the downloaded zip file and you are good to go. Don’t think so you need any guide for this.
