Android 4.3 build for the Moto X leaks from test device

While Moto X users seem to be getting along just fine with their current build of Android 4.2, we're always looking for something new — and we now have a purported leak of Android 4.3 for the device. The leak comes by way of a purported build pulled from a "test" phone" that was running the latest software.

We certainly expected that Android 4.3 was in testing for the Moto X, and the poster over at XDA indicates that this build is still far from final. They claim that the build seems to be slower than the current Android 4.2.2 that's shipping on the phone, but that the camera seems to be improved over what's available now.

In order to flash this leaked build onto your device you'll need to have an unlocked bootloader and a little bit of time. There is currently a download link with all of the files necessary to fastboot flash it onto your device, provided you're handy with that sort of thing. As always, proceed with caution when trying out experimental or test firmware.
