Without being too specific, is it worth rooting and ROMing at this point, or is it still worth waiting?

"no confirmatory information regarding the timing of release, the version number, etc. is going to be released to users at this point for a variety of reasons"

This hints at the possibility that the update is not yet ready for prime time.

The big question, is whether it will be 4.1.2 (which added multiview to the international s3) or 4.1.1 (which doesn't have it)

I'm waiting myself as I'm one of those types that fit in the category of if it might go wrong, it definitely will.

As for 'not ready for prime time" there's enough chatter out there now & I think that we've all learned from this very informational dialogue, that there will be no fact-based answer regarding release timing, version number, etc. until we receive that text message from AT&T that says GO!

Att customer service representatives usually don't know about updates till the day of (or even after).

So "not released to users" is not actually that. Att doesn't tell their own employees till the last minute.

Your friends comment is also most likely not inside information but he knows he won't know till its released.. Just like us.

I nearly pulled the trigger on a Nexus 4 the other day to cross AT&T and the manufacturer out of the update equation, but....no LTE!

I'll give AT&T credit for acknowledging the update on their website. However, I don't buy into the "very near future" bit. I've rooted and ROMed phones in the past, but only out of necessity. Unfortunately, with AT&T being involved, it's becoming a necessity once again. Fortunately, the Canadian SGH-I747M model will be receiving Jellybean starting December 3. From what I understand, it's nearly identical to our model. At least we'll have a stable custom ROM within a few days of release!

And that lead time is for the 16GB, the 8GB has a 8-9 wks lead time.

Samsung just posted that Jelly Bean is rolling out Monday to our Canadians neighbors to the north. That is some BS! They torture us with Celine Dion & Justin Beiber and then are rewarded by Samsung with an earlier release of JB than the US users.

Which means that it'll arrive before AT&T releases Jellybean!

This is a good thing. As I've mentioned earlier, this phone is nearly identical to ours, so we'll have a stable custom ROM in a few days!

LG probably didn't manufacture too many of them for this exact reason. This explains the longer lead time.
