AnonD-81866, 26 Nov 2012Do any one know Jelly Bean update available in Srilanka? Hi,
Looking on the firmware sites, I can only see ICS 4.0.4 update released in Sri Lanka so I don't believe the update is available although you could flash it yourself if you know how or had a look around.
How do I upgrade My OS to Jelly Bean?? From South Africa, Please tell me the full steps if you can thank you..
Kindly confirm, after update to JB 4.1.1, I am unable to switch the FM stations through headset pause & start button which was smoothly working in ICS 4.0.4
I've succeeded in updating my s3 to the official 4.1.2 and I've equally gotten the same look in note2 on my s3. I now have the split screen/multi Window as in note2 and many new features that are not in 4.1.1. Now my s3 is in the same capability, except from the s-pen and screen size.
Iphone 5 is nothing compared to this device
Samsung galaxy s3 the best and the most advanced device yet
If You Have Pc Connecting Issue then Upgrade your OS to Windows 7.i was Also Suffering From Same Problem but by upgrading OS i Solved my Problem Automatically.
Samsung had recently halted the roll out of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for the Galaxy S III in India after starting it earlier this month.
However, the update is available through the Kies software, and its file size is 310MB.
gs3, the best present I have received for BD.

After reading Freefaller post I think you should try restarting the phone with no SD card in it. And see if you at least get a plug & play response when connected to the pc. Don't worry about correct drivers yet. Work on getting some kind of response from the pc.
I have a 64bit Vista system. So the OS can't be the problem.
There are cards that have android compatible on the packaging. Get one like that if you do get a connection without a card.

I've Googled 'samsung s3 mtp failed' and come up with a lot of people suffering with the same problem as Kofi Knight.
Quite a few are saying that the problem lies with older SD cards that can't be recognised with Microsofts new MTP software, and the answer is a newer SD card (class 10); which is why I suggested removing it and rebooting the s3 without one.
Others claim that the problem lies with x64 bit Windows not able to recognise MTP phones.
Most cases seem to be a problem with the Media Transfer Protocol, so I'm not sure what the solution is.
I just love this phone.! It has got everything that i need. Yoo :-D

Even if he doesn't have the drivers and everything is ok with the phone, data cable & and usb port on the pc. Should the phone detect usb pc connect and show the usb fork logo in the notification area. Drivers or not?
And should plug & play on the pc kick in on the pc when the phone is connect with no or wrong drivers?
According to him nothing happens it only changes.
I was thinking he is using a charging only cable with less pins but he said he tried more than one cable. Or the output on the port is too low. But he claims it is Usb2 and he tried more than 1 pc.
Kofi knight, 25 Nov 2012nothing at all...its only charges the battery@ Kofi knight
When you connect your S3 to a PC you should get a notification 'Connected as a media device', and a USB icon in your notification bar. If you don't then you do not have the drivers installed to recognise it.
First download the correct drivers for your OS (I have listed the links before).
On your PC, press Start button and choose Control Panel in the right hand pane. From that, Choose Programs/Uninstall a program. From the list, choose 'Samsung USB Driver for Mobile Phones' and uninstall.
Now install the USB drivers you downloaded, reboot your PC, and see if the PC recognises your phone.
Kofi knight, 25 Nov 2012nothing at all...its only charges the battery1. You have tried multiple data cables.
2. You have tried multiple pc's with Usb2 ports. (Not 1.1 or 3)
3. You never it try to install drivers or show the usb logo on the task bar on the phone.
So Aaron far as the phone thinks, it's on a wall outlet not a pc.
All that is left to do is a factory reset from the bootloader screen. If that doesn't make it work. Take it back. You have a defective unit.
