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

I got it fixed. I was at the latest version but I ran the troubleshooter and it reinstalled the drivers.

As soon as it fixed the drivers it found the phone and said that there's a firmware update!!!!

Saving some files and then updating!

Updating right now. I'm actually very surprised they rolled it out! Shows that blowing up Twitter does work!!!

Re: Galaxy S III Jelly Bean

Not sure which thread to report in but the update keeps failing for me. On Windows 7 with the latest Kies. The update process begins fine, it even downloaded a huge file. But when it goes to install, it fail saying my PC couldn't recognize my phone. Tried several times following the instruction and such.

Yay!!! Going to install soon. Was wondering if it will show up later tonight since I did a "Check for software" and it says it is up to date. I know it's available via kies, but I want to see if they're going to send it OTA as well.

Sorry Phil from AT&T! LOL. Anyway, just read it's not available OTA, so I'm going to install via KIES now.

Using the Samsung Kies, it detected that there was a new firmware 4.1.1 build JRO03l.i747UCDLK3 I had 4.0.4 i747uclh9

 

Service version : Android Version : 4.1.1 / Baseband Version : I747UCDLK3

 

click upgarde firmware, flow the instruction displayed, and let it do it's thing,be patient it took about 30min so just chil, and do not disconnect you usb cable. 

 

it was long but seemless all my setting from 4.0.4 are still there.

 

Done!

Seems the 4.1.1 update via Kies removed Latitude and VPN Client from the pre-installed apps, while adding Help, Mobile Hotspot, Music Hub, and Voice Search apps. This kind of thing normal? I never used any of those two that are gone anyway.

Re: Galaxy S III Jelly Bean

So I upgraded to JB right before leaving work and I wanted to try the Navigation. For about 3/4 of my drive home (only 5 miles in town) it showed me 2 blocks to the north.  Then the last 1/4 of my drive, it showed me right where I was. I'll try it again tomorrow morning.  Hopefully it was just working out a little kink.  If not, this will be a HUGE upset (for me) because I use my Navigation all the time when I go to Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA.  Please let me know if anyone else experiences troubles w/ their gps/naviation. Thanks!

Re: Galaxy S III Jelly Bean

Per the Samsung site, 4.1.1 will not be OTA. Update will only be via Kies. There's a notice on the main support page for the 747. Here's the issue I have with that news - Kies has never worked for me, on my MacBook or my Win 7 PC - and I've never bothered with it because I've never had to use it. Wonderful.

Re: Galaxy S III Jelly Bean

Finally managed to get my phone updated by abandoning Windows 7 and going to Windows XP. Before the update I had no data network problems. Now, however, there's nothing but data network issues. I'm not using the phone until there is a resolve to this data issue.

 

By the way, as is my custom, I did a complete wipe after update. Started fresh.
