    This is what I think that jerrylamos did.

    He used the QA tracking zsyc url to update a Raring ISO image. But I am wrong. I have just tried it and I get the error message No relevent local data found - I will be downloading the whole file. Now I am sure that I did things correctly. Copied a Raring ISO image into the Downloads directory. CDed into the Downloads directory. Copied the zsync info in terminal. Yep.

    So, I am as baffled as you. Any way I now have a Saucy ISO.

    Edit: Re-reading jerrylamos post, I think he changed the name of the ISO image from raring-desktop-amd64.iso to saucy-desktop-amd64.iso (Assuming it was an amd64 ISO). I will have to try that.

    Second Edit. It is working. Rename the raring ISO image to saucy and run the zsync download url. Target 57% complete. So, already we have a big difference between Raring and Saucy

    Regards.

    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    ..or simply rename :

    raring-desktop-i386.iso to saucy-desktop-i386.iso

    then

    dale@dale-desktop:~$ cd Desktop
    dale@dale-desktop:~/Desktop$ zsync -i ./saucy-desktop-i386.iso http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live...i386.iso.zsync
    #################### 100.0% 234.6 kBps DONE

    Re: how to change repos to Saucy

    I updated my sources list, per the instructions at the start of this thread, for a 13.04 install in Vbox. The first few times I tried to run updates, I received error messages and no updates were downloaded. Once the Saucy ISO was available, then the updates came. I'm finding no issues so far with the addition of the 3.9 kernel and the 13.04 programs installed. I don't have Netflix desktop installed on this particular Vbox and I'm not so sure I'll try to do so right away. It was quite a while in 13.04 before I could get that to work and once it worked then so did everything else.

    My install still thinks it's 13.04, btw.

    Nope, simpler than that, just did a
    Code:
    cp raring-desktiop-amd64.iso saucy-desktip-amd64.iso
    then did a
    Code:
    sudo zsync http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/cdimage/daily-live/current//saucy-desktop-amd64.iso.zsync
    zsync reported 74.8% complete, as of that date, goes ahead and completes the zsync
    which gets me a saucy.iso I can boot directly from the hard drive,
    then I use an exec to do my setup....

    I do this early in the U+1 when it looks like the U+1 daily build will install, using the last previous .iso. Don't know what will happen with the next "rolling release"?
