Posted by iRub1Out , 15 November 2012 · 5,672 views

WHAT WE'VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR




We have solid info that the following updates are to be released on USC "VERY SOON" OTA:


(Sooner than the "Coming Months" killjoy)




Ice Cream Sandwich - Galaxy S2

Jelly Bean - Galaxy S3

Multi-Window Display - Note 2

In addition to these, VERY welcomed updates, the Electrify M will also be getting an OTA update (some already did) to fix the PRL issue.

-this will be updated as soon as info comes in - IF info comes sooner than the update,

If I have a rooted S3, what do I have to do in order to get the OTA update?

Follow my guide, Here
Do I have to go thru all that if I'm rooted but not running a custom rom?

No, all you have to do is flash the LG1 - via Odin or Mobile Odin, then you're on LG1 without root. Just do the OTA updates to LI4 - then sit tight and wait for JB.

As for me, I'll wait till the official launch - then unroot and OTA to the newest. Then it's a waiting game to see if the toolkit will root it on 4.1.
pardon me, but why is this big news if devs have been making jb roms for quite some time now?
This will be a JB ROM with Touchwiz specifically made for the USCC version of the phone. Some people don't like Touchwiz. I do.

Some have no idea os desire to root as well aka the majority users they sell to. That's why this is huge for them. :)
My prediction is the week after Thanksgiving… They will focus on pricing next week and then start the update process. They will try to use the update as a "selling point" like usual as well… Good luck to them.
I think we'll get Dr. Dre's Detox before we get Jellybean.

How isn't this big news? Roms can be buggy, cause more issues than they solve, and aren't "all-user" friendly. This is an official update, from USC, not a developer of custom roms. It's stable, more stable than roms (we hope). For the 99% of users with a GS3 that DON'T like to mod their phones, this is absolutely huge.

Any chance of getting a leak on this before release?
while i do suppose all the arguments for this being huge news, i don't fully grasp why still?
i mean, don't people who usually go on forums and such looking for updates and what-not, tend to "mess" with their device or equipment?
its not like this is purely a news site that is simply stating "USCC customers will be getting a JB device..." its a site where people can find mucho info on their "regional" carrier's phone and how to do various things with/to it.

touchwiz on the S3 is/was a huge improvement over the way it was on the mesmerize, but not quite what i needed. i guess i was just too used to and comfortable with cyanogen/aokp/AOSP roms from me mesmerize. i tried to like it, i really did, and i suppose most of the reason for me going with CM10 was the familiarity with the thing.

its cool though, i'm not trying to bash on anyone's parade here. the wife's one of those people that doesn't want the phone messed with for whatever her reasons are.
Anyone know if the Jelly Bean update for the S3 will be 4.1.1, 4.1.2, or 4.2?
my guess would definitely be anything but the 4.2 that just came out.

Disappointed the S2 is only getting ICS... I love Google Now and dont like touchwz, but I would rather go stock than custom for the sake of stability...
I am disappointed that we still don't have 4.1.2 on the E2 yet. The second biggest part of the reason I got the E2 is because of Google owning Motorola and the fact that I expected to get regular updates. I get updates all the time on my Xoom, and am already up to 4.1.2 on it, but still stuck on 4.0.4 on the E2.

Now I am curious to what the dates are.... My S2 needs something sugary for Thanksgiving..
I've been "poking the bear" with USC and samsung every day. Just keep asking when it will come out, but I KEEP getting stonewalled.

I got the same thing from them today on their twitter feed.

I noticed on the Samsung website they have a new user manual for the R760 dated 11/14/12. I downloaded it and it lists the OS as 4.0.4. Hopefully they release the update this week.
