Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update is originally expected to release some time in Q4. However, thanks to SamMobile we already know what the update would look like through an official (yet unofficial) leaked Jelly Bean build and apparently another build for Jelly Bean has been leaked again.
The first update which made its debut in the previous week had too many restrictions and limitations with respect to carriers and the firmware itself but the latest update does not have any of those irritating limitations and can be easily downloaded and installed on any international Samsung Galaxy S3.
The luck few owners of Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 are the people who get to taste the Jelly Bean update first, while the rest of the people would have to wait for a few more weeks to get their hands on the new OS.
However, before you go down that road, it is our moral responsibility that we should let you know of four things. First, installing a custom firmware will void the warranty of your Samsung Galaxy S3 at the very instant, secondly, this a firmware which is still in its testing phase so expect it to be a little buggy, third, installing a custom ROM requires the device to be rooted so if you are not familiar with the risks involved in rooting, it would be better for you to hold off till Samsung officially rollouts the Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S3 via Kies.
And the last and most important thing, the current Jelly Bean build is only for the international version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 out there so don’t get your hopes too high, since the update will not work on the US version of the device.
As for the release date of the update, it is rumored that Samsung would roll out the Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S3 on August 29th but as always, since there is no official word, we advice you to take the rumor with a grain of salt.
