From what I can see, it doesn't look like there's any official release of 4.1.1.

Someone else may wish to confirm though. Everyone looks to be still 4.0.4. The UK networks are still sporting 4.0.4, if yours came from there.

Hong Kong, another source for parallel importing is also still 4.0.4

Just keep waiting..

- Business Hours - Work In The Electricity Industry, After Hours - DJ/Turntablist - Will Scratch Vinyl For Free'
- What's next??? S3?

mattwnz: Anyone know how/when we will get jellybean update for unlocked samsung s3's? The one I have got was purchased from DSE, so is not a parallel imported, nor is it tied to any network, although I am using it on vodafones network. SO I pressume the update is supposed to come directly from samsung, but there are no updates available  for it. Updates are so much easier to understand with apple products.


Trying to work out the same thing here. My partner has a red one from dse also. I believe dse have parallel imported them. Trying to figure out where from..


I didn't realise they were parallel imports as they weren't advertised as such. They were on;y advertised as 'unlocked' I thought there were laws that required them to advertise if that goods are parallel imported or not, as you don't get the same consumer protection as the local supplier in NZ may not support them, eg  if the retailer ever went under


What's the firmware noted in the settings??


It's 

Android 4.0.4
SMP PREEMPT Tue Aug 21 17:04:13 KST 2012
Build number
IMM76D.I9300XXBLH3

Apparently from google this makes it the international version.

BLH3 was a generic update pushed to many network operators in August.. If you knew what the previous firmware was, which is now very unlikely, that would point to what country it originated from. Going by the date.. It could be either Aussie, Nordic Countries, UK (02), Serbia or France..

In other words.. just keep waiting! It just so happens that none of the countries I mentioned above haven't got 4.1.1 yet, looking at the Top 10 Latest I9300 firmwares.

For those who are waiting for Vodafone firmware 4.1.1 you might get it sometimes this week or next week.

http://www.sammobile.com/2012/11/23/samsung-galaxy-s-iii-android-4-1-1-update-scheduled-november-26th-for-vodafone-australia/

Australia is getting their today. So I think Vodafone NZ could also be on the same queue with the Vodafone AU. Though, VAU and VNZ are not related :)

My red Samsung Galaxy S3 from dick smith is running stock 4.1. I had to manually check for update, there's no prompt or anything saying the update is available. Took about 15 minutes to download and 5 to install. MY understanding is that they are generic UK devices, which have got the 4.1 update

There's an unofficial version of 4.1.2 floating around now, installed it yesterday and it is full of win!! Far more "buttery" than 4.1.1 plus it has inherited multi window, gallery and a couple of other apps from the Note II

I'm on 4.1.2 as well. Been on this since 2 weeks ago.

There are still some inconsistency of smoothness of the transition and the firmware. But for a leak it is by far the best leak firmware so far.


New things:

*Multi view
*Panorama photo change/Camera app revamp
*customisable notification bar shortcuts
*Gallery update to Note2 and fixed fullscreen issue
*Video player is zoomable (pinch to zoom when playing movie in fullscreen)
*UI transition frame rate increase
*New motion mode
*All Share cast/Group Cast
*and a few more

I just wish multiview can support all apps.

Hmmm...just flashed the latest Wannamlite ROM and the Snapper App\Widget is displaying the balance of my 2 Degrees Touch2Pay SIM. This could bode well for any 2 Degrees users who want JB sooner rather then later. The real test will be catching the bus home.....
