Default Jelly Bean is coming!

Apparently all Android device manufacturers are gearing up to release Jelly Bean to current Orange android devices during October.

I agree there isnt much information in that small statement as to which devices are getting it but I will try to keep you posted

As I mentioned in another thread in this forum, I received an unbranded, unlocked phone from Orange. I won't get an Orange update filling my phone with bloatware through Kies will I?

Actually, there's a 'software update' option under the 'about phone' menu, do I even need to use Kies? Is that on over-the-air update? I've just confused myself thinking about it now, ha.

I also have an unbranded device from work which didn't get any Orange branding on my update to ICS. You shouldnt get any Orange software on the device if you update through Kies or OTA

Not 100% sure but Samsung don't allow users to update over the air unless it's a Google Nexus or something which do get OTA updates as it's a samsung device with a different name on it.

I had to use Kies to get my ICS update. The OTA just told me that teh phone was upto date. I don't think it's a branding thing as I have recieved OTA updates before... small ones. Maybe it's a size thing

Samsung pick and choose which updates are available OTA, however full firmware updates are done via Kies

As of this morning, I note that hell still hasn't frozen over; therefore no Jelly Bean update for Orange S3 owners.

Thanks for this. It saves me having to load up Kies to look for an update. I'm getting pretty impatient now. Any help as to when we'll be getting JB will be greatly appreciated.

I know that you were only trying to help and passing on what you'd been told but yet again...... it turned out to be pure rubbish. It's rediculous Every single product launch, upgrade, event, you name it..... Manufacturers, service providers, the whole damn circus is rife with incompetency and it'll never change.

Some idiots even call this a good thing as it "Inspires Innovation". No it doesn't, it breeds impossible deadlines which in turn breeds cover ups, lies and rumours.

My industry works on the premise of under promise and over deliver. You guys are the polar opposite. It's a disgrace that would see my company go out of business

*Rant Over*

Well, it looks like Apple has given Orange a convenient pretext to delay Jelly Bean for as long as they want.

That Apple suit only applies to JellyBean on the Galaxy Nexus. It should have no impact on any of the other manufacturers.

Can you imagine ANYTHING in life, being 2 months late? Getting paid, moving house, paying a bill, starting a job, setting up a business, you name it.
It is the ONLY industry I know of where it is acceptable and even planned for. Nothing I can do about it but stating my disgust sure makes me feel better

Just had a DM from the Orange Helpers. They say it's approved and will be available via Keis soon. If you've not run Keis for a while, I suggest you run it up and let it do all of its updates (Samsung upates Keis regularly, for obvious reasons). Oh, and it's best not to have your phone connected when Keis is updating itself.....

Yes, I heard a rumour the Jelly Bean upgrade would never make it to the none LTE version. That's fine - I'm prepared for that contingency (though the Orange staff who take that call may not be prepared for me ).

Yes, and it was an OTA upgrade. In fact, one of the features of Orange flavoured Jelly Bean is that they've enabled OTA for the first time on the S3.

Almost half a year behind schedule........ and we STILL give these people money
Yes I could root, yes I could have a nexus but that's not the point.... They said that it would be available. Why did they bother? Why not just say fack all and that would have been it

Anyway...Life's too short

As there's no official HTC release (or does it look like there will be), Orange/EE won't be able to release it either. Your only option is a custom ROM.
