Samsung Galaxy S III Gets Brand New Jelly Bean Leak

August 23, 20120 Comments

It is all but certain that the Samsung Galaxy S III is getting an update to Jelly Bean sometime soon. How do we know this? Well, Samsung did say so themselves, but given how difficult updates can be, we don’t really take their word for it. The biggest evidence is the series of leaks that have been coming out that turns out to contain some pretty stable Jelly Bean. For now, unrooted users can’t make much use of them, but rooted users and ROM developers have been having a good time with them.

The latest released leak is called I9300XXDLH6. Included in the update is Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean), as well as a new radio for users to flash and check out. For now, as stated, you can’t really get this unless you’re rooted but unrooted users fear not as the official update will be on its way soon. To get it, use the source link below and download it. The reason for the edit to the updater-script is because it was causing flashes to fail and the edit will allow them to be successful. To do it, all you need is a text editor (such as MS Notepad) and a zip program (such as 7zip). Open up the ROM, find the file, edit with Notepad and then save it. Then follow the instructions to flash it. It’s a little tricky as you have to remove some code manually from the updater-script, but otherwise it’s not overly difficult.

So far users haven’t reported too much of a difference between this and the last leak. One thing users should know is that installing it will make you lose root and that will remain lost until someone comes up with a root method for it. It does bring a little more completeness, a little bit faster performance, and a little bit better battery life but these could also be placebo effects. As usual, your mileage may vary.
