Only if you can get Kies to work!
Seems I was wrong. I've tried in kies and there appears to be no update for 3 uk yet. Wish they'd hurry up!
4.1.2 is available on orange via kies, just updated today.
and for me too, (on three uk) but nothing via kies
Im on 3 UK, I have just received a firmware update notification through kies.
Current firmware version : PDA:LJ1 / PHONE:LI1 / CSC:LJ1 (H3G)
Latest firmware version : PDA:LL4 / PHONE:LK2 / CSC:LL1 (H3G)
I wonder if that is 4.1.2?
I haven't done it yet as just on way out so will do it later.
Seems to have arrived for three uk today. I haven't got it OTA but then I never seem to get it that way. Checked sammobile though which says its released so connected to kies and installing now. finally!
Got it on 3 uk today via Kies. Will need to play around with it to see if i notice much difference. I always feel a bit underwhelmed when an update does arrive, dont know if i hope for major changes and looking dramatically different but rarely do i see naything major changing.
Cant UK carrier branded phones just be flashed with unbranded official firmware usin Odin?
Wouldnt want all that bloat plus i tried the o2 one 1st n it had camera problem and had the CHEEK to add bookmarks to my chrome!!!
Grr@carriers/networks. Il never have a phone contract again (even if my credit limit says YES
What u think of the status bar toggles? Notifications is gone!! Multiscreen is crap so far but do a data speedtest or cpu n notice the performance boost
I still have notifications show when i pull down the bar. It is showing just now that i have one email unread message, is that what you mean or am i missing something. Tried the multiscreen and dont think i will be using it, i am blind as a bat and have to zoom in on most pages to see them anyway never mind halving the size of the screen. Everything else so far seems quite nifty. Will see what else it throws up.
The notification toggle buttons can be changed. Settings > Display > Notification panel
Still waiting for T-Mobile to release the update.
I have installed the update via Kies and noticed that I now have Chrome installed. Did Samsung do that to all S3s or is that something my network (3) have done?
I now have chrome on my S3 as well and its on Vodafone uk.
Im on EE and still on the 'latest' 4.1.1???
And I got this???
There should be a pic here??
Hi I followed instructions and up-dated to 4.1.2, via Odin, but when checking if Keis recognises my S3,I found it didn't. I then checked the *#1234# numbers and found this:-
CSC 'No Information
Does this mean that my 'phone is partially bricked or that I have managed to void my warranty?
Any comments/advice will be gratefully received.
I got my S3 as a gift. It's unlocked and unbranded and it's running 4.1.1. I've been waiting for the 4.1.2 update, but nothing yet (not even via Kies).
CP: I9300XXDLID (this also appears in Settings -> About device -> Baseband version)
Kies says that my current (and latest) firmware version is:
PDA:LJ4 / PHONE:LID / CSC:LJ1 (TPH)
What do those numbers mean? Should I just continue to wait for an update or should I try to update via Odin? Thoughts?
I dug up a bit and I guess I can answer some of my own questions (hopefully this is helpful for someone else). I googled the CSC string and got a link for the Sam mobile site. That's how I found out that my phone has a Portuguese firmware. The Sam mobile site says that for this particular firmware there is no update yet. On a different forum (one from France) the general recommendation was to not change to a different firmware, one from a different country/carrier, so I guess that in my case it's probably best to wait.
From my understanding 4.1.2 does not exactly revolutionize this phone (yes, the split screen is nice but not vital), so I'm not exactly dying to get it. If the firmware becomes available on Sam mobile and after several days it's still not available OTA or via Kies, then I will consider using Odin to flash 4.1.2.
Just a word of advice, changing the CSC to your country will reset the phone.
I appreciate the tip. Does that mean that if you apply an update (via Odin) with the same CSC the phone will not be reset? Is that what makes the difference between everything being erased and not?
Honestly, ive no idea. Sorry! Ive used Odin twice to update and neither time my phone got wiped but on one occasion i did need to change my CSC to my own country which then wiped the phone completely.
Ive no idea why i needed to change the CSC from what it was, ive had a look but cant find the reason why i did it.
