    I mean who knows, I have learned to become very pessimistic when it comes to OTA updates haha, could be the fact that I deal with Verizon :eek:

    I think that Metro is "in charge" of the cdma updates and Tmo handles the gsm updates. I have no proof of this of course...did the Metro gsm s3 get an update too?

    If Metro is an official carrier with their own type of S4, which I have come to understand as true, then yes they will be in charge of bringing the updates to their devices.

    Yes, but Tmo and Metro are now technically the same company since the acquisition. Metro released the OTA for the old CDMA S3 (the S3 on their network) but have yet to release the OTA for the new Metro GSM S3 they sell (which is on Tmobile's network). Im thinking, as I said, that the OTA's for Metro's GSM phones will come from Tmobile and not MetroPCS. Edit: I'm just guessing here folks...

    I don't think you need to guess for that one, that should be a fact. If, which I didn't know about haha, Metro is now under TMo's umbrella then all the OTA updates will come from them, if you want to know you could always send TMo's Customer service an email requesting for an update :p

    So is anyone going to flash this thing? Or are we waiting for the official metro update if that happens.

    I got a download error. Anyways remember what Shabby wrote in another thread:

    "you wont be able to use odin to flash back to 4.2 if you do the 4.3 update, samsung has started blocking downgrading via odin. so unless you guys make a odin tar per newer firmware if you mess something up you wont be able to odin back to safety. :/"

    Hey guys I was popping in this forum and saw my name mentioned about merging some threads, so I worked some magic and ta-da! The threads regarding 4.3 are now together in one thread :).

    Hopefully this makes everyone happy, if not feel free to send me a PM.

    Otherwise the other 4.3 thread will have an expiring redirect for 3 days for anyone who is confused regarding the merge.

    Thanks again! :)

    if you guys have the tar you can just make it into a rom without getting the bootloaders, its what im waiting to do for the s3 4.3 update. (making a rom so no bootloaders, not the tar bit :p )

    Im sure the guys at the Tmo threads will be making a rom from this update soon...If you really, really want to try 4.3, I posted a link to a Touchwiz rom a few posts back that will satisfy you for the time being. Its made from an early leak of the Tmobile 4.3 firmware. Ive been running it for close to a week. The 4.3 update looks and feels exactly like 4.2...there's really not much difference IMO.
