MurrayM: I turned on my phone this morning and was greeted with a pop-up window saying that there was an update available form my "Samsung Account".  I told it to go ahead and update, which it did, but after the update I didn't get anything else (I was expecting maybe something that told me what the update did or what was new).

Did anyone else get this?  Anybody know what it's about?


Doesn't sound like a system update to me. Usually System Update will say there is an update waiting for you. My guess is just Samsung App update? Or software on Samsung Apps store update.

Nope, definitely not a system update.  Was interesting because it didn't come through the Play Store like other app updates.

I just did a Google search and found some other people talking about it in the last few hours:

I wasn't getting asked for an update but I went into Samsung Apps (first time in....forever) and it asked for an update. I did it and it said the Samsung Push app was updated.

Hmm, the update I got didn't look like this, it definitely said "Samsung Account Update" and it just popped up on the home screen, I wasn't in the Samsung Apps app.  In fact I've just gone in there now and it gave me the same pop-up in your screen shot, so it looks like they were different updates.

I think you don't have to worry about the System Update for Vodafone GT-I9300. You're more than likely not getting it this month or next. Worst, may be next year.

Just flash with an international Unbranded UK Jelly Bean Android once it became available and be happy.

Hello all S3 users, some might know me from the S2 topic. Just unboxed my International S3 that came nicely bundled with a tab (guess they cant give enough of them away haha). Cut my sim down to micro works just fine and now im ready to get rootin'.

I am fairly proficient with the s2 from root level up and have tweaked around with my fair share of roms, kernels, modems etc...but to jump the gun and and keep fairly up to date (as I supposed pages 230 and below are already old hat) I wouldn't mind your top 5 tips on anything you guys think benefited your s3, from phone codes, best modem signal vs speed, roms, and the like. As a helping hand to me and a refresher to others.

Cheers

Chex: Hello all S3 users.....


There's a ROM thread here (bit quiet though)

http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=97&topicid=107664

The SuperNexus ROM is awesome. I was running it for a while but have to stick to a 2 Degrees ROM so I can use my phone as a Snapper card.

DoggNZ: 2 Degrees ROM so I can use my phone as a Snapper card.


Is there more information on this 2 degrees Rom/Feature that enables snapper? I would not mind knowing how to use the NFC for snapper as I live in Welly also.

Interger I enjoy the PA Rom on my s2 but only as a dual boot I will give it a go after the JB leak thanks.

*Update: Just read through the XDA and Geekzone threads RE snapper sounds like alot of hassle to port it to a non 2deg setup with the sim and apis. Easier to place my snapper between phone and bumper case tbh haha just pretend as phone is that little bit bigger than s2.

If there's a way of porting it to another ROM, let me know! :)

Edit: TBH, the stock 2D ROM is sweet as. It's not "OMG! Leaked JB DLI8!!1" but it just works fine and I can still lord it over iPhone users Wink

NFC antenna is built in the battery. So should still work okay.
