I recommend you do step 14. Regardless if the phone boots correctly or not.
If you had a provider Branded ROM like I did (Phone starts with your provider logo and the Samsung logo) the method to get that ROM is to do a firmware initialisation using kies.
I did it twice already, checking to see if my provider got the 4.1.1 update.
But I have given up on that now and just went with the unlocked ROM 4.0.4 for my region (got it on sammobile) and after doing step 14 it auto got the OTA for 4.1.1 for the ROM I had on.
Any way back to what I was saying.
With out your phone being connected to the PC open kies and go to tools>Firmware upgrade and initialzation. follow the onscreen instructions. (Case sensitive.)
This will restore the original ROM for your S/N
Note: After doing this if kies says you can’t check for updates for your phone. Following step 14 of the article freefaller gave and just to be sure do a hard reset after. that will fix the problem.
(I know this because it happened to me.)
BTW. If any one here has a digicel SIII I would like to know when it gets the 4.1.1 update so I will restore me phone once again.
faha, 15 Nov 2012Please help. I recently updated my SIII to 4.1.1 ( the update has not yet arrived in my countr... more@ faha
All the links are there for the files you need and instructions if you need them.
yashi, 16 Nov 2012sony or samsung which is the best....????????sony is more premium and valuable and with best cams!samsung are good in batteries and updates ( verY FASTLY) and removable batteries!~
Portugal: UNbranded SGS3 bought in October - Still no Jelly Bean update...
And we still read 4.2 will come for Christmas!!!
Maybe Xmas 2003, as far as Portugal is concerned...
Shame on you, samsung...
Don't be surprised for getting such a bad reputation in these countries that you seem to have forgotten!
adrian, 15 Nov 2012ugly phoneWell something is always ugly if you don't own it!
yashi, 16 Nov 2012sony or samsung which is the best....????????Samsung overall is better, but Sony makes waterproof phones, and Samsung not really these days. Samsung phones have a better battery, have removable batteries, but some Sony phones not.
blake, 16 Nov 2012just wondering when JB will be rolled out in Australia for the S3Got tired waiting for the update for my Telstra. JB's been out more than 1 month for the rest of the world. They treat us like we're living somewhere in the North Pole. So I flashed official 4.1.1 firmware for UK through Odin. Worked great. But what's more amazing is when I flashed 4.1.2 just now. It's smoother with new features from the Note2. Including multi-window, best-face, new gallery, and paper-artist. Just go to xda-developers.com. You don't have to root your phone to do it.
Seph, 14 Nov 2012I've had this model for six months and never have that problem with my battery and brightness.... moreI m using my s3 lightly.
There are no apps runing in background nd also no mails for sync.
I don't know whats the problem.I have read this thread on XDA.What u say about it(It would seem that the issue comes from an error in framework-res.apk. XDA Recognized Contributor bala_gamer explains that the power drain value setting for Cell standby is erroneouslyset to 34 mA (practically impossible) instead of a more reasonable value of 3.4 mA in power_profile.xml within framework-res.apk. He then put together a corrected power_profile.xml, and provided a quick step-by-step guide to pushing the change.)
Thanks in advance.
