Default Did anyone else get a notification about a system update?

Today I got a notification that my phone will be getting a new Google update. Is this going to be jellybean?!??

Wouldn't get your hopes up, VM rarely pushes OTA updates.
EDIT: I also have that notification

Interesting. I wonder if it's just another patch to ICS or if they're pushing out JB.

Regardless, I think this phone has gotten the most updates to it out of any VM phone.

If anyone wants to force the update:

You should get a prompt to apply the new update (assuming there is one available for your device)
Also, to get our hopes up, they released Android 4.2 for the Galaxy Note 10.1 last night. Coincidence? Probably not. Lol.

I tried that and didn't see anything about an update. I hope it's a slow roll out of jellybean. That would be a great surprise.

I tryed mine also > No update.
Since these phone are fairly recent, you'd think a good marketing strategy would be a Jellybean update to sell more phones.

But thats just me, you know how corporate works.

I don't know why virgin isn't talking about it on their site or facebook. If it was a big update they would defiantly be talking about it.

Where are you guys seeing this update? Is it through the VM app? If so it might be referring to the LK2 update that came out a few months ago and they just never updated it.

Yah, it is the My Account icon, and when I got my phone it went through a couple updates, I really kind of do think it's referring to Jellybean, I SO hope so! Nice to know some of you are getting the notification, too!

It is in my vm app. It's not concerning the plak2 update because I already have that update, don't want to get my hopes up but i site would like for it to be jb update, however, I would be shocked if it was

You can check samsung open source for all updates and releases. Samsung Open Source Release Center . As you can see there is no new updates listed.

Positive, I've had my phone since November or early December. Did the plak2 update them. However, like I said earlier this update notification is in the vm app when you hit the "help section" , after the app checks my voice and data collection of oops up but when I tap on the update it disappears. So maybe it's just a fudge up!

Mine's only a couple weeks old, but I got the other updates shortly after activation... I touched the notification too, it disappeared... Oh well, I heart my phone regardless. :-)
Lol still keeping my hopes up... but since I'm coming up from froyo to ICS anyways my hopes don't have far too fall, I'm still a pretty happy camper!

FWIW... I just applied the update and I'm actually happy it's NOT Jelly Bean. I've seen some things don't work right with it on other Jelly Bean devices.

And I'm happy to report that FoxFi still works!

Would love to see a detailed report of just what the update was if anyone has info.

It is mainly a baseband update. If you have root and want the update, head over to the all things root section for the MB3 flashable update package.

You may have to do a bit of system file cache wiping.

If you are asking me, no. I'm just stock rooted.

I deleted the downloaded update file out of my cache but its still not notifying me of the update.

Beware. It appears that this update is to Jelly Bean 4.1.2, but will pooch some non-stock apps/functions, i.e. root tools: cwm, poot... wifi. READ the recent posts before you 'update'. You might not like the aftertaste.

Updated this morning, HOWEVER, it changed the keyboard/speaker GUI (which I don't mind, so long it's still working)

BUT~ my email client (stocked) keeps bringing up the same emails and it's getting annoying when I get notified. Any way to stop this???

I'll let y'all know of any more bugs... but for now, the email issue is driving. me. insane. LOL

Thumbs up

Hi All,

I just joined this group today, so its nice to be able to contribute on my first day of group membership, but I just returned from the Samsung website which tells you the status of open source OS updates for your Samsung product I have just downloaded and am planning to install now, the file:"SPH-M950_JB_Opensource.zip" which tells me that I am downloading the JellyBean!

See the above posts (By jimmy422, and James319) for the Open Source download link and the process to get your device to look for, download and auto install the OS upgrade (JellyBean)

GO GET IT!!

Angry Can't make calls

Just updated this morning now I can't make or receive calls or texts, but the internet works

I'm new to smartphones, I know the basics, but I don't know about rooting, or how to do any tech stuff.

I'm new to smartphones, I know the basics, but I don't know about rooting, or how to do any tech stuff.
You may have to go through activation again. There should be an Activate app in your app drawer.

See the above posts (By jimmy422, and James319) for the Open Source download link and the process to get your device to look for, download and auto install the OS upgrade (JellyBean)

GO GET IT!!

do you need to root the phone before installing JB?

No. If you are not rooted and still have stock then the JB update should go rather smoothly. You may need to reactivate your phone after download.

If you want to root after the JB update then take a look at the following thread for guidance.

I did that while I had my carrier on another phone and it still didn't work. They have no clue either.

Strange. If nothing else less drastic works then you should do a factory reset, which should take care of it because I can't think it would be a hardware problem if the problem only started after the update.

If the reset doesn't work then at least you're still under warranty since you haven't rooted and can get a replacement sent out to you through customer service. Definitely sucks in the meantime though I'm sure.

Edit: Before you do a factory reset try to move any pictures, videos, music, etc to your external memory card, or upload them to dropbox or transfer them to your PC via USB cable. Anything on the phone will be wiped out to factory original state, but the external card won't be affected. You won't be able to backup any apps because you're not rooted, but you can re-download the apps from the store after resetting, including ones you've already purchased at no additional cost.

Even so I would not update as anything new(jb given in this case but ics is no different) will kill your batt way faster than whatever was already initially(Froyo and Gingerbread).Why?Newer updates obviously has more features but simultaneously consume more power to use contrasted to forementioned is solely stock equating to little or no additional use.Newer is not always better but given the vast majority and their mindset(s) they will learn the hard way lmfao
