Finally got it in mine after flashing back to stock. Now after updating to 4.1.2 and rooting phone back, it says on Kies Firmware not supported.  So anyone know if this is because it is rooted or are you all getting this after update.

Re: Samsung galaxy s3 jelly update 4.1.2

I don't get it either..  KIES says my 4.1.1 is the latest version as well, and IT'S NOT.  I tried the time hack where you change the time then update again, but now it says I have like 100,000 hours before I can check again, and it's up to date (when again, no it's not).  Before that it kept saying software update has been interrupted.  Now it won't even let me change the time either.. it keeps going back to todays date.  You CAN'T CLEAR DATA on at&t update service.. that is greyed out as well.  What can I do?  When will this be on KIES?

You Must do the 4.1.2 with Stock Non Rooted phone from settings in phone NOT Kies!!!

Ok so here is some good news for those of you who got hosed using the time change trick..  Just root the phone, install titanium backup pro, and then wipe the data on the AT&T Software Update app (it allows you to do it through the titanium backup pro app)..

 

After a reboot, sure enough it said software update interrpted and it will try again in 48 hours..  Then I tried it again and it said software is up to date and I can check back in 24 hours..   So long story short, still no update, but at least I got the timer back to normal without having to wipe the phone.   Always a good idea to do a full backup to your google drive account anyway since you now have root and Titanium pro..  It's worth it.  Just always restore to the same rom / android version if you are going to restore, and THEN update to the new version, then re-root (if you want to keep root)

Update the Software for the Samsung Galaxy S III (i747) to Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean)

 

Update summary

On July 31, 2013, AT&T and Samsung released a software update for the Samsung Galaxy S III (i747). This software package updates the baseband version to I747UCDMG2, and is available for download via Wi-Fi.

  

Software update includes

  • Multi Window: You can open two different apps at the same time into two different windows on the mobile screen.
  • Auto Share Shot with NFC: By setting the camera to "Auto Share Shot" mode, you can quickly share your photos and videos by simply tapping their GALAXY S III with other NFC and S-Beam enabled devices
  • Camera features: Paper artist and best face options.
  • AT&T apps: AT&T services, Drive Mode, AT&T Locker; Family Map, Live TV, and SmartWifi have been loaded.
  • Other enhancements:  Includes calendar, SD Card, and S-Voice enhancements.
      

What to expect after the update

Although there should be no impacts to settings or data, we recommend that you back up your media files to an SD card, a PC, or using a favorite application (from the Play Store), prior to upgrading the software. For information on backing up and restoring your phone using Samsung Kies, click here.

  

How to update

Customers will receive an alert and be prompted to download the update, or have the option to initiate the update manually. When prompted, you can postpone the update up to 3 times, and 4 hours per occurrence. After the update has been postponed for the maximum allowable time, your device will automatically download and install the update.

  1. To initiate the update manually, from the home screen, press the Menu key, and then tap Settings.
  2. Scroll to and tap About device > Software update > Check for updates.
  3. Tap OK.
  4. The device will determine if new software is available, and begin downloading the software update.  Once complete, the device will restart.
  5. Please wait until your device reboots completely, and then tap Done to finish.
     

How to verify the update

  1. From the home screen, press the Menu key, and then tap Settings.
  2. Scroll to and tap About phone.  The following information will be displayed:
      • Android version: 4.1.2
      • Baseband version: I747UCDMG2
      • Build number: JZO54K.I747UCDMG2

Re: Samsung galaxy s3 jelly update 4.1.2

I'm very happy with the update. Multi view is very convenient. Ingress doesn't freeze up on me and text copied to the clipboard isn't randomly restarting my phone.
It's interesting though that a few days after the update my SD card comes up as damaged and days to try reformatting. Good thing I back stuff up...

Re: Samsung galaxy s3 jelly update 4.1.2

Dmitriy,

Some users have been unable to connect to the OTA server(s), when will the update be given back to Samsung to make available through their KIES software suite? I believe this is also an issue with the latest update for the Galaxy S4 as well (based on some comments in that thread)...

Thanks,
-Steve

Strange, mine just notified me *yesterday* that the update was available - downloaded and installed OK, but it sure took a long time to roll out!
