Lightbulb Samsung Releases 4.3 for AT&T SGH-i747

I've been running stock 4.1.2 on my AT&T SGH-i747 but it won't work with Bluetooth Smart devices. I saw that CyanogenMod has a 4.3 for the SGH-i747 and people were successfully using a Polar H7 heart rate monitor.
Thus began my journey into rooting the phone since it seemingly took forever for AT&T to come out with 4.1.2 (from 4.1.1).
I used ChainFire's excellent CF-Auto-Root and was searching for the stock 4.1.2 ROM before loading CM when I found, on Samsung's website, that they have released Jelly Bean 4.3.

Go to Samsung's US Support website and search for "AT&T Cell Phones: How do I update my Samsung Galaxy SŪ III (AT&T) to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean?"

(I can't post the link because I'm new here.)


I'm installing it onto my phone as I write this message.

I still plan to root for Titanium Backup, et al, but figured the link could help some other newbies out there.

The OTA 4.3 update worked. It took nearly an hour to download via 4G and then 15 minutes to fully install.

I have been around the Android forum section and see that I was late to the party regarding the 4.3 OTA release. However, this thread should be easy for newbies to find and hopefully it will help them get started.

Newbies: go to the Android forums on this site and search for instructions on rooting your SGH-i747 4.3 OTA. There are a number of threads. I used ChainFire's CF-Auto-Root which you can also find in a forum search.
