Samsung has committed to bringing Android 4.3 Jelly Bean to its Galaxy S III former flagship and the rollout should start in a few weeks’ time. If you know your way around flashing a ROM manually, though, you don’t even have to wait that long as a pre-release version of the Android 4.3 build has just surfaced.
The beta version is reportedly stable enough to work as a daily driver, although it may have a bug or two. It brings a number of UI changes, including a new settings menu with tabbed interface as found on more recent Samsung flagships. The transparent notification bar is here too.
Unfortunately the majority of the widgets in this build are still using the old design and Samsung Knox isn’t enabled. That should change in the final Android 4.3 ROM for the Galaxy S III, though, so you don’t have to worry about missing on the security feature.
If you feel like giving the latest Jelly Bean version a trial run, you should follow this link to download the required files. If you don’t know your way around the Odin flashing software, you can find a step by step tutorial at the via link below.
i recommend all samsung s3 owners to stay with 4.1.2. its better than 4.3 but if you like to try 4.3 please please do full titanium backup before updating.
This firmware is rolled out for Vodafone Ireland and should not be applied to the International Version of Galaxy S3.
Just be shore to back it up.
