Cyanogenmod 10.2 for GALAXY s3

Now if you want to experience how Android 4.3 might look in your phone than for Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 users here is the big deal 'Unofficial Android 4.3 cyanogenmod for Samsung Galaxy S3 is out'.

Recognised XDA developer, codeworkx has shared the unofficial builds of CM10.2 and an easy instruction guide to install the ROM on Galaxy S3. Head over to the original thread to learn more about the custom release.
This is an experimental build, and the Android device is likely to encounter FC errors, boot loops, several other bug issues with the installation of the custom ROM. To fix this, users will have to reinstall stock firmware or any other stable version of custom build. 

Install Android 4.3 custom Rom on Galaxy S3
1) Install USB Drivers for Samsung Galaxy S3 to transfer files between the Android device and the computer.
2) Enable USB Debugging Mode on the phone to connect it with the computer and use Android SDK with it. [Press Menu>> Settings>> Applications. From there navigate and click on Development option and then check the USB Debugging Mode.]  
3) As the tutorial might wipe out all data of the phone, create a backup. If the device is having any custom recoveries such as ClockworkMod/TWRP already installed, then backup data using the recovery.
4) The Galaxy S3 should have above 80% battery charge.
5) The phone should be rooted and have ClockworkMod (CWM) recovery installed.  
6) The CM10.2 unofficial builds work only with Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300. As flashing these on any incorrect variant is likely to brick the device, verify the model number of the Galaxy device by navigating to Settings>> About phone>> Model number
7) After flashing the ROM if the device gets stuck on Booting animation or experiences boot loop, then perform wipe cache partition and wipe dalvik cache five more times before rebooting the device. 
8) Users are advised to give five to 10 minutes to the ROM after the device boots up the first time to settle everything for a better using experience.
