Sprint Galaxy S III gets its own Jelly Bean leakage (Build L710SPRBLIF is live!)
Our friends on Sprint’s “Now Network” who own a Samsung Galaxy S III got a surprise treat yesterday, in the form of an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean leaked OTA update, which made its way into the hands of XDA Recognized Developer, freeza, who promptly uploaded build L710SPRBLIF for anyone who’s itching to get a taste of Android’s latest and greatest.
Thus far, we’re hearing mixed results on the ROM’s stability. Some folks are saying it runs fine for them, while others are reporting minor issues in certain areas, but hey — that’s why this is a leak and not an official update. Typically, these builds are used for behind-the-scenes testing and tweaking. Once they are ready for primetime, the carrier will push out an official update.
Luckily, there’s someone on the testing side of the fence that was kind enough to “leak” this out, otherwise it might be a while before Sprint customers got a chance to taste any of the sugary goodness that is Jelly Bean.
If you’re feeling frisky and want to give this one a try, remember we cannot be held responsible for any damage you do to your device in the process. That being said, you can find the leaked OTA, along with instructions on how to install it, over in freeza’s original thread on XDA.
On a side note for those who don’t know, I run a Galaxy S III circle on Google+ with tons of active members from the community chatting with one another. If you’re not already a part of it and you’d like to be, make sure to add me to your circles and send me a shout!
