Samsung Galaxy S3 Receives Newer Leaked Android Jelly Bean Update
The official Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S3 is expected to arrive soon. Rumors have already stated an Aug. 29 launch date, which coincides with the Galaxy Note 2 event date, is on the cards. Adding to the rumor mill is a recent report that indicates a new ROM is now available.
Although, we've already seen the previously leaked ROM (build I9300XXDLG4) in action, the current report suggests that a newer ROM - I9300XXDLH4- is now available.
The new ROM, build I9300XXDLH4, arrived on Aug. 14. It has packed in further improvements to Google Now as well as overall stability enhancements. However, note that this is only applicable for the global Galaxy S3 version and other U.S. carrier variant owners will have to wait a tad bit longer.
The steps also seem quite easy. Basically, users just have to download the new ROM - flash it - transfer the OTA file to their phone - reboot to recovery - install from zip - reboot. For additional help users can check this link.
Additionaly, T-Mobile is pushing an over-the-air (OTA) update that resolves a few minor bugs and reportedly eliminates universal search, according to users on xda-developers. In reality, Samsung is prepping these updates as a "precautionary measure" to fend off a repeat of the injunction that temporarily barred the Galaxy Nexus from sale in the Google Play store.
The update - version T999UVLH2 - includes Samsung's video streaming AllShare Cast app, as well as a fix to the Mobile HotSpot app. It also addresses an issue with folders arrangements after reboot, as well as a tweak to the "add contact" functionality. The update weighs roughly 94MB and is available at the forum.
