Official Jelly Bean Update Coming in February =/ but at least its coming. I like it cuz i like the stock rom and all its features. They are saying this on metro pcs facebook page check it out.

"We are excited about the Jelly Bean upgrade, too! We are working closely with Samsung and just learned that we expect to have it available in the February timeframe. Anyone with a GS3 will be able to upgrade at that time (current and new customers). Stay tuned for more updates! Thanks, KG"

here is a link from a screen shot i took from MetroPCS Facebook Page saying this amazing news.... "MetroPCS - We are excited about the Jelly Bean upgrade, too! We are working closely with Samsung and just learned that we expect to have it available in the February timeframe. Anyone with a GS3 will be able to upgrade at that time (current and new customers).

Hate to ask a dumb question but I'm still new to this whole thing. What are the advantages to having jellybean over ics or the custom roms that are available on this forum?

so far current buglist:
notification pulldown says something other than metropcs solution: put some duct tape over your screen to prevent from seeing it.
everything is uscellular branded solution: dont flash this zip as its based off their jb update...
My fav app doesnt work?! solution: im working on it, but for realzies it might be an ics to jb issue or some random cosmic crap.

ill make a proper thread when this is a proper rom, til then suck it up and download it from here ;P

edit: just to clarify this is a stock jellybean touchwiz rom, no gapps needed as its tsock based. no kernels will work with it this is merely me putting out a solidly nice rom that i consider to be a daily driver. when things are fully fixed and rom runs as it should ill add in bells and whistles who cares if you can OC to 1.8ghz if you cant connect to 3g/4g? :p

p.s. sorry ldrifta i know you spent a lot of time on ics stock and now im here stealin your thunder, lemme know if you wanna branch off this and go on your own jb way :)

Also gotta give thanks to Ldrifta, Chiwen, PG for their hard work and whoever else is a dev, tester ect...
