Hate waiting for your OTA? download 4.3 OTA links for Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4/7

So 4.3 is here.  For some... I guess.  I haven't heard of anybody who's got the OTA yet.

If you're brave and want to fastboot the factory image (thus wiping your device) you can do so with the links to the images I posted earlier.

But what if you just want to apply the update?  There's some help for that as well!

+Ryan Lestage just shared a post from +Shaka Huang:  https://plus.google.com/u/0/109598013262032506525/posts/4yKsruPrNwZ

Essentially providing you flashable zips for you to use.  (his post isn't public, so they'd have to have you in their circle to get it).  If you can't view it, here's the links they provide

Galaxy Nexus (yakju) : http://android.clients.google.com/packages/data/ota/google_maguro/6c7ff815e7762f651ad6f8c74e5cb281093f1e0b.signed-yakju-JWR66V-from-JDQ39.6c7ff815.zip

You could download to your device and if you're rooted, just go ahead and flash from a custom recovery.

If not... well, there's still options.  In fact +Android Police wrote up a great step by step on how to do it, so instead of me trying to 'translate' what they've done, just go ahead and read theirs:  http://www.androidpolice.com/2013/07/24/how-to-flash-your-nexus-4-to-android-4-3-jwr66v-and-root-it-right-now/

Word of warning - I haven't tried these yet (I'm trying to be patient here), but there's been plenty of others who've followed the steps and it's worked out swimmingly.
