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.

All manufacturers have software issues. At least Samsung is giving the S3 version 4.3 so soon when other manufacturers 2013 flagships are still waiting and their 2012 phones are not even giving a whisper of an update yet.

It clearly shows that Samsung R&D and upgrade team spent only very less time to update S3 to 4.3, that's why all those problems after nearly an year wait for an update. If they are concentrating only on new phone means they will sure loss their reputation and customers. I wont buy a Samsung product anymore for providing lazy lazy update and problematic update.

To all people who is new to a update software, please be careful!!!!!!!!! an update software may cause lots of issues which is known by the manufacturer.Battery darining, apps stop, freezes. slow internet connection etc. once update my note 2 to jelly bean from 4.1 to 4.2 and become ireversible as samsung does not have 4.1 to turn it back. the internet becomes slow. this applies to all os ios and android especially

LOL- how funny is this?? Maybe Samsung should write an email to the CM team asking them for a little help. What a shame - my friend has been using the stable version of CM for weeks now on his SGS3 and he has zero issues.

That's it I am rooting my phone and installing CM on my S3. I know Samsung is not going to pay attention to these "OLD" devices, no matter if the customers have paid a lot of amount for that product only to help samsung build their way to the top. Very disappointed with samsung.
