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.
i have questions about an upgrade to android 4.3 for samsung galaxy s3. what's happening with personal information on mobile with upgrades.
mike, 04 Nov 2013And still no uptate for s4 active, thank you SamsungThere is an update for s4 active already released long time ago. If you didn't get it, try updating it from samsung kies (downloadable on pc). Thanks
FYoung, 04 Nov 2013Android 4.3 will come to the LTE Samsung S3 on T-Mobile on November 25 according to:
http:/... moreThe official Android 4.3 for the Samsung S3 (which would be the international version) is now rolling out to Vodaphone in Ireland, but it does not contain KNOX or a new skin or new widget icons. Android 4.3 for S3 should roll out in other international markets soon:
mixa, 03 Nov 2013All those who had the chance to test 4.3 will tell you that it has no difference between 4.2.x... moreThe problem is "most manufacturers" had already skipped 4.2.x, delaying it one more time would fall under the most fatal technology deadlock: there is always something better just around the corner, if you keep waiting for the next big thing then you will never do anything.
That "rumor" about Sony is very nice indeed, but I recommend caution. Low-ends are very unlikely to ever get updated and not all Mid-ranges may get the update.
I would rather wish that Sony aided Cyanogenmod in giving proper support for all their (older) phones than keeping up with this "once in a device lifetime" upgrade gimmick. -- Not bashing Sony, just giving them the hint that would make them true leaders in this Android phone industry. Today I just won't buy a phone that doesn't have official support from the Cyanogenmod team.
mortuus, 04 Nov 2013sad it doesnt get the same widgets launchers as S4 has :( ithought we would have that...Just wait for a reworked version of the ROM with the S4 widgets and theming......xda forum is your friend!
"so you don’t have to worry about missing on the security feature."
An entire community doesn't know how to get rid of that and you are worried that is missing ... :))
