Official T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S III Jelly Bean OTA leaks (Updated with flashable rooted ROM)
Could it be true? Is T-Mobile the first US carrier to have a Jelly Bean OTA ready for the Samsung Galaxy S III? While there’s definitely no word of anything official, it looks like the devs over at XDA have gotten their hands on a leaked version of the stock Android 4.1 ROM for the device.
Before you go all bonkers on us, it may be safe to hold off on flashing this one for a while, especially if you’re already rooted and running a custom ROM on your device.
Initial reports from the forums aren’t looking so promising, but at least there is now a base file for developers to work on, which should lead to something worth flashing in the very near future.
If you absolutely cannot wait, here’s what you’ll need to do:
Again, you’re probably going to revert shortly after trying this, but if all works out, this weekend might just be a very exciting one for T-Mobile customers rocking the S3, like myself.
Stay tuned, I’ll be watching this one like a hawk.
Just wanted to let you guys and gals know that there’s already something worth flashing, as long as you don’t mind not having WiFi calling and a broken stock browser. (Chrome is better anyways. Use it.)
XDA Senior Member Wildchld has posted a flashable rooted ROM, which I’ve already installed. I have to say, it’s very impressive. I really like how Samsung blended Android 4.1 and TouchWiz together. One of my favorite additions is the quick access to Google Now via a long press on the home button. Awesome stuff!
Here’s the details on the download:
