    I just updated my jellybean to 4.2 (unrooted) yesterday, but there is no sign of any Photosphere....

    Was wondering how come??? I thought it was officially part of the update.

    hmmmmm...... can anyone shed some light?

    Thanks.

    You would have updated to 4.1.2, as 4.2 hasn't been released for the S3 yet. The photosphere I think is a Nexus exclusive and as such might not make it to the S3 at all, but Samsung may decide to make their own version.

    your confusing 4.2 with 4.1.2.

    4.2 is the latest android version and only officially available on the new nexus devices at present.
    4.1.2 is the latest S3 version.

    Yup, unfortunately 4.1 and 4.2 are both named jellybean. 4.2 is the one that adds photosphere, multiple accounts, ect

    4.1 added Google now and project butter

    Root users should have access to 4.2 already through the development community

    4.1.2's keyboard is pretty neat... but i cant seem to get back to that setup screen on where it asks the platforms of which to learn my style of typing and words... The screen appeared after my update, but cant seem to find it anywhere anymore...

    sorry, i know this may not be exactly related to this thread title...

    It should be in Settings > Language and Input > Samsung keyboard, and there is a little settings button directly to the right of the text, if you press that it will take you to more settings

    Try SwiftKey sometime if you get bored, it is heavy on predictive stuff and correction, learning from gmail and facebook, txt, etc.

    Sure that's in the stock keyboard? Thought that was only a smart keyboard pro function?

    Android 4.2.1 update commences for Sprint’s Galaxy Nexus

    Just to be pedantic. :p
