Galaxy S III Jelly Bean

Does anyone know when ours is coming? Sprint got theirs in October, and T-Mobile is pushing out the update today... I don't understand why it's taking AT&T so long

Also you may or may not have an issue, java must be updated for kies and if running win 7 or you have admin rights "right click kies" run as admin!  that will help you avoid a lot of issues !

Kies is the biggest pile of garbage I've ever encountered. If one of my software development teams had written Kies, I'd fire them all the way from the senior architect all the way down to the very last intern and blackball them to make sure they never got another job in the software industry, ever. Kies makes iTunes look well designed. That's how horrible it is.

 

The first time I tried updating my phone to Jelly Bean with Kies, it bricked the phone by crashing halfway through the process of flashing the phone no matter how many times I tried, and I had to take it to the AT&T service center to be re-flashed back to ICS. Then a new Kies update was released and that one actually managed to flash my phone without crashing during the upgrade process, but it crashes whenever attempting to do anything else with the phone. 

 

So anyhow, if you're having Kies troubles, they did release a new update around 48 hours ago. Check for updates and update to the new one if you don't have it. And then once you manage to flash your phone to Jelly Bean with Kies, uninstall that pile of garbage and install iSyncr WiFi or DoubleTwist WiFi to do actual syncing of content to your phone, because Kies doesn't manage to do anything other than crash, crash, crash, crash, crash.

 

Oh, my setup: HP Envy 17 with Windows 7. All software programs were closed while using Kies. I got the first Blue Screen of Death with Windows 7 that I've *ever* gotten with Kies the first half dozen times I tried to update my phone to Jelly Bean. Even Open Source programs like VirtualBox have never managed to crash my computer hard like that despite dealing with the hardware on a far more fundamental level than Kies ever will. Like I said, if one of my own teams had designed/implemented Kies....

I agree that Kies is garbage... I updated Kies removed it , re installed it per their help desk, turned off the antivirus , firewall, One told me the USB Debugging has to be checked on , the next person told me no it has to be off , do a factory reset... Within the hour it was made public that the update was available I tried the update and still nothing.. In fact their answer was well there is something wrong with your phone. In this case AT & T has to get their act together and do the OTA update with these many failures updating.

Got my s3 a few days ago, got home, installed Kies, updated to Jelly Bean in about 10 minutes seamlessly.  No problems on Windows 7.

I second elnino21's post...I'm one of those having issues.  ICS was rock solid.  JB has been unstable...random reboots with occasional lock ups where nothing is responsive....where I have to hold down the power button until it restarts.  Honestly, the few new JB features are not worth the issues.

Make sure you have the right settings checked. I believe you need to have USB debugging checked. Also when you connect there's two options to connect to your computer. Make sure you don't have the camera one checked.

Don't know if anyone has noticed, but after the update we now have the official Swype keyboard.  However, there is no voice input button.  To solve this install the Swype beta Installer through their website here http://beta.swype.com/

 

After doing the install and entering the verification codes (2 of them) I now have beta and the speech to text works amazingly well.  If this helps anyone, please give me Kudos. Thanks!

@jakel24 - I'm considering exchanging my Nokia Lumina 920 for this phone. Please tell me the Android 4.1.1 update doesn't reintroduce the Samsung Captivate (original Galaxy S) random power off bug. That was a nightmare!

I hear that the new Galaxy is supposed to be out around Oct or Nov here in the states, if that is the case I would imagine that the newest Jelly Bean would be on it.  I wonder if that is why they wait, strategic move to make us want to just buy the new phone and spend more money...  I do not know why AT&T is always the last to roll out an update but it is extremely irritating.

The new Galaxy S4 is actually coming out in less than a month, with AT&T pre-orders starting on April 16.

One of the big selling points of Android devices was their Adobe Flash compatibility. Now that flash is being phased out of convention, you won’t be able to download flash from the Play Market. That however doesn’t mean that you can’t get it.Ures can Manually install flash on thier Samsung Android Device

However, even if flash is installed on your phone and you use Chrome on your phone to browse the web, flash still won't work.  You'll have to either use the stock Samsung browser or find a different one. I don't know which ones actually work since I rarely visit flash sites on my phone.

It's sad and pathetic that Sprint is running circles around AT&T when it comes to keeping their flagship devices updated.
