    Android 4.3 Shows Up in Server Logs on Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10


    Here's an interesting find from our friends over at AndroidAuthority. They were perusing their own server logs and found a curious amount of devices using various versions of Jelly Bean that we haven't heard of yet. They spotted Android 4.3, Android 4.3.3 and Android 4.3.1. All of these versions were running on various devices like the Galaxy Nexus, the Nexus 4, the Nexus 7 and the Nexus 10. Could some Google employees be using a newer version of Jelly Bean on their devices while browsing content over there? Seems like a distinct possibility. It's also possible these were faked, but it seems like a difficult and strange thing to pull off for almost no reason. Here's a quote with more of the details,

    As you can see in the screenshot above, we can easily spot a bunch of Nexus devices including the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 running a variety of Android 4.3 versions including JWR25C, JWR24B, and JWR29/JWR29B. We also notice a Nexus 4 running build JDQ39 (Android 4.2.2) which is identified for some reason as Android 4.3.

    Of the build versions mentioned above, we spotted JWR25C on the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10, while JWR24B was seen on the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4. Build number JWR29/JWR29B has been seen on the Nexus 4.

    After digging through the virtual dirt, we found out that visits from these Nexus devices running these Android 4.3 variants were registered in the last week of April, hitting as early as April 29 and coming from a variety of locations, including Google’s Mountain View home in California, other California-based locations, but also London, UK and India.

    The screenshot above also shows two other non-Nexus devices running other Android 4.3 versions. One of them is listed as the Huawei U8819 (a model number awfully similar to the Huawei Ascend G300 U8818/U8815) running Android 4.3.3, while the other one is the ADR8995 4G (known to the public as the Pantech Breakout) running Android 4.3.1 (which is interestingly, and probably mistakenly, dubbed as Key Lime Pie).
    Could Google be preparing a newer version of Jell Bean for launch at Google I/O, and then preparing a later launch of Android 5.0/Key Lime Pie for later in the year? It definitely looks like a possibility now. Thanks for sharing this!

    i dont think it's all that hard to fake them, all it requires is a couple build.prop edits i think? and one or 2 of those logs might have been people trying to "troll" different sites with faked build numbers or they just made the mods for themselves to mess with friends
    like this one
    We also notice a Nexus 4 running build JDQ39 (Android 4.2.2) which is identified for some reason as Android 4.3.
    could possibly be a faked one due to the mismatch, and all the ones other than strictly 4.3 (i.e. the 4.3.1, 4.3.3 4.3.0) could be faked ones as well, especially since they appear to be on non nexus devices

    that said however, the ones on the nexus devices could very well be legitimate, especially since some were traced back to google in california and a 4.3 build number and still jellybean would make sense for the next update, which will most likely be more of bug fix update than one packed with new features. 4.2 introduced a few new things and new issues to work out before they jump into making even more features

    just my $0.02

    How come they are all running mozilla (and 5.0) shouldn't they be running chrome?
