    Hi,

    I see that the new version of Android is slowly been pushed to various phones around the world.

    But I have yet to hear/see anything about South Africa...

    Does anybody know when we will be upgraded, (I am on the MTN network)?

    Is there a way of upgrading the phone manually? (After all, why do I need to wait for my service provided to push the update anyway?).

    Or is there no real big difference between the two versions for the every day users, and I might as well wait for the update, whenever it might come.

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forums FFMG, honestly i have no idea when it will be pushed out, however the other option is rooting your S3 so it has a ROM that is on Jelly Bean, this is the easiest way other than waiting for a carrier update.

    Sorry i couldnt provide more help. Thanks for joining the site though :)

    Hey, Thanks for the welcome and the help.

    I rooted the phone fairly easily, (using Odin and a one of the many tutorials around).

    I am now trying to upgrade to 4.1.1 but Odin gets stuck on "NAND Write Start!!" for over 10 minutes now.

    I don't want to brick my phone, so I guess I will just wait for the update before I make things worse.

    hmm i would suggest to factory reset again and do the root again, it took me 4 hours to get my first root right!

    So you could just keep trying, it is pretty difficult to brick a phone, but don't be cocky about it because it is possible.

    Well, it looks like the download I originally had didn't quite work.
    So I downloaded it again, re-ran the update and I now have Android 4.1.1.

    Truth be told, I am yet to see a major difference between the two.

    ... but to be fair I didn't really need to update in the first place :)

    Thanks again
