Can you link the article? I am actually skeptical about it being true.

Doesn't look like it's a cast-iron date... Nothing definite from Samsung; GSM Arena are quoting an 'anonymous tipster' as their source

Finally, some good news for the Galaxy S III users out there. The Jelly Bean update for the flagship smartphone is almost ready and will be released alongside the Galaxy Note II at the Samsung press conference on August 29. Special thanks to our tipster, who chose to remain anonymous!

Nothing official then, I wish it was true, but still, I don't think it will be released so soon. If I were them, I would wait until the iPhone 5 release, and then announce Jelly Bean for the Galaxy S3.

I merged the thread with the jelly bean thread. You should be able to go to the first post (or first few posts) and get the highlight

Wouldn't you want JB out prior to iPhone release? If its good, it could sway people to away from iPhone and toward android 4.1 devices and dampen the iphone release. I'd want S3's running JB on the shelves just prior to Apple's release.

Wait until iPhone release and Apple may steal all the thunder... Timing sounds right to me.

Even if this is true this does NOT mean that WE will get our hands on it at that time. If they release to carriers on the 29th you can bet there will be better than a month of "customization and testing" that will delay at the carriers. Then they have to implement their rollout plan as well.

I would actually expect a couple of community ROMs off the released version before I would the carrier OTA release.

Im sure the carriers already have it and have been developing on it although that still doesn't guarantee a quick release.

Doesn't matter for me, all I need is the Samsung stock ROM, not the carrier branded one. So yes, within a day or two from the release, I'll be able to get JB for my S3.

Default Jellybean

There seems to be a few threads over on the XDA forums about people already building a Jellybean ROM there....just not too sure on them yet. Anyone with experience?

There are plenty of Jelly bean ROMs for different devices. All of them are still nightly build, not good enough to use as a daily driver. Many functions of the phone won't work. As of now, it's better to wait. If you want to try, and get a "taste" of what's upcoming, go ahead, although it would be more like a test, rather than a full experience

I have heard of a CM ROM for a long time, but am not real clear on how it differs from all the other ROM's out there. The only constant I see is that the CM ROM keeps the same name while the other one's have a million other names.

Cyanogenmod is a huge development team for a large number of devices and when your device is officially supported by the team you'll get a new rom update nightly that incorporates all of the newest changes from that day. It's easily the most well known custom rom.

I'm on an unofficial cm10 port now, and the evo 4G lte should be getting official support in the future

Thanks a lot for the information all. Sounds like the CM ROM is good if you want to constantly work on your phone...no offense. I look forward to the official or whatever you want to call it version of Jellybean. I rooted my phone but am not a big fan of having to constantly work on it or change things. You guys have been a great help though.

CM10 is your best bet for jelly bean in the near future. I don't even think the nexus phones have an official update yet, which is going to be well before we can even think of getting it. Not to mention Samsung has to put Touchwhiz on it and test that.

Oh and the simple fact that Samsung is Never fast with updates or have we all gotten amnesia?

We will be lucky to have it OTA by years end. I bet against that happening. Which is why I will be trying it via root.

Well you have the choice, you can flash the stable versions if you want something you know just works or you can flash the nightlies to always be current and on the latest and greatest.

If that build is official, I hate how Samsung has stuck with their UI look and not the real JB style. But, all I really care about is "project butter" and Google Now. The Google Now feature should really take this phone one more step.

I really hope VZW can get this update out soon after the official release.

There is no way to know. Reasonably, you would hope if this does release at the end of the month, that we can see it a month later.

But 2-3 months would not be out of the question.

I came from a gnex to an S3 and can say that the S3 is far more superior than gnex when it comes to signal strength, battery life, user interface and overall performance. I also have a motorola Xoom wifi (with jelly bean) and can say that while the jelly bean runs smoother / faster than ICS, it is no where near drastic enough difference to step back to my gnex....

Google's attempt to stop Android lag. The screen runs at 60 fps. Trying to make the experience as smooth as possible. Interesting to see if the S3 could get even more smooth. This project just started in JB.

I think I read somewhere once that they are running the CPU and the graphics parallel to each other. Instead of them "hitting" each other. I am no expert on that, but it makes sense logically.

Default Jelly Bean video dilemma

Hello.

I'm not sure if I am posting this in the right place, so sorry if i haven't.

I was wondering what with the Jelly Bean update around the corner for us S3 users and adobe rendering flash useless after the update should I be worried about updating to Jelly Bean? Is there any way we can watch flash content after updating?

Sorry if this is a stupid question.

Many thanks for any help.

Ok I read a few post of people opinions ..... heres what i have read around

Yes you should update to Jelly Beans heres why (click here)

Flash is useless because the new thing around is html5 even though sites havent really upgraded to this "html5"

and theres fakes out there that will do the job that flash does something like that...

and trust me if flash is that big of an issue Google would do something about it ....they wouldnt want us to be unsatisfied...

and I read Adobe is trying to get take out Flash out of every mobile device so either way one day youll be screwed

If I am not mistaken, Flash Player works pretty much. Although you can't download it from the Play Store, but if you have the APK you can install it. It won't work perfectly, but flash contents should load.

Looks like that video is genuine -

It's not that most of us are not content with ICS, but we know there's something newer and better out there and we want to be on the bleeding edge.

One of the reasons we got the SIII in the first place, no?

Does anyone know if Jelly Bean might possibly improve reception? This might be the single area where I think the GS3 is a little lacking (overall a great device). Dare I hope......
