    Is anyone else in the UK still waiting for the 4.1.2 update on unbranded S3?? everytime i check for an update it just says latest updates are already installed but the version is showing up as 4.1.1. Everyone i know who has an S3 have received their update and forgotten about it!

    i've tried doing a factory reset and firmware re-installation to no avail and kies keeps saying latest firmware is already installed.

    Its really starting to annoy the crap outta me now!

    Lucky you. I'm on Orange (EE) and still have 4.04.

    Orange are terrible at pushing out software updates, thats why i never get orange branded phones. Mine's unlocked, got it from phones4u, yet cant understand why everyone around me have got their update and i havent.

    Mine is unbranded from TalkTalk on the vodafone uk network. Got my upgrade to 4.1.2 a couple of weeks ago.

    It may be unlocked but its the fact that it is unbranded that is relevance here.

    Still nothing on Three UK either, seen something on Twitter stating that their devs weren't happy to release it as they had problems in testing.

    Please can you confirm that you have the "BTU" CSC?

    Dial *#1234# on the phone keypad to get this information. BTU is the BriTish Unbranded CSC. Just want to make sure you have this as this is what governs your updates.

    That's France. Someone has manually flashed your firmware?

    France?? Dont understand how thats happened:thinking:...last update i did was 4.1.1 thru kies when i was prompted (in uk)...no one else has touched my phone, its always with me.

    How do i get it back to uk firmware??:thinking:

    Maybe it was always France. DLJ2 was never released in the UK. We got DLJ4

    You can download the full OS from:


    (Use the filters to select your device and "United Kingdom - BTU" )

    And flash it using Odin (guide) here:


    I've never done this so I'm not sure if it will wipe the data from the phone. I *believe* it doesn't.

    Please also be aware I'm just giving you the tools to do this. If you don't follow the guide properly, its not my fault.

    Any data on your sd card I recommend backing up to pc first. Aldo suggest looking at sms backup+ to backup sms to Gmail.

    Of course you could just wait until France gets the update

    i plug my phone in to charge overnight and when i came to unplug it on monday morning it was showing that it had downloaded the 4.1.2 upgrade and asked me if i wanted to instal it. my wife had the same message but im not sure if she has installed it yet. we are both on EE (tmobile/orange). two things that are slightly annoying to me are when i plug my headphones in there is nothing in the notification bar that shows what apps are available to use headphones and the other thing is down the left side there is a retractable bar that shows apps that are available with screen with in screen or whatever its called but this keeps disappearing

    I've flash stock via Odin a couple of times and it does wipe all data, including internal SD. So as SU said back up everything.

    Another thing I have found, when flashing with Odin, is that my S3 always hangs on the Samsung logo when it reboots, so you may have to pull the battery, boot into recovery and wipe data/factory reset as well

    I literally just upgraded, and instantly was hit with the ear phone issue.
    Settings>Display>Page buddy>ear phone page thingy.

    (I don't care for page buddy, but it does bring up the drop down app options - woot.)

    funkylogik share the love peeps ;)

    Download the firmware from Sammobile then flash it using Odin. Just put phone in d/load mode and turn on "usb debugging"
    Doubt it affects your warranty.
    Im so sure theres a guide for everything ive said but if not, just ask. You should have 4.1.2 by now :beer:

    anyone got 4.1.2 on three uk today? I've just tried checking for updates and rather than saying I have the latest version its saying that annoying message about updates being pushed out in the order they are requested which makes me think it might finally be out!
