    Come on Verizon and update the G3 bricks we purchased from you. Bought a google nexis tablet and it updated to 4.4 kit kat the day I purchased it so I know verizon can upgrade the software on a stupid phone.

    Nexus firmware comes straight from google. S3 firmware has to be built to work on the s3, tested, then the carrier gets that firmware, messes around with it, tests it then pushes it to the phone.
    Im running 4.4.1 rev1 on my s3 so the answer is to root and use 3rd party firmware instead of samsung's. Basicly make your s3 into a nexus :thumbup:
