Default Updating Questions

Hey guys,

So I've heard there is a recent update for the S3 released in the UK.
Firstly, I have an international version of the S3.
Secondly, I live in Canada so the phone is unlocked.
Thirdly, I have not touched the software at all. No mods, no roms etc.
Lastly, the software version (baseband version) ends in LG3.

I've tired manual updating but there is no updates. Is my version the most recent one and if not, is there a way to manually update my S3 or do I just have to wait?

The software you are talking about is UK version, meaning it will only be available with users who already are on a UK firmware.

I bought a German one and simply used Odin to update to the UK one and to be honest really like the changes. A few things in System Settings have changed for the better.

The update itself was painless too, very easy.

Have you had any trouble accessing 'Owner Information' because since my update Settings crash when I try to do that.
