Hello!

Hi Guys,

Fairly new to this forum (just been reading so far)...I bought an SIII (unlocked) but it came with the Vodafone UK ROM. This was fine with me but then I had the whole issue of the "cell standby" eating up battery so I rooted and installed the fix for it. My question now though is this; as I have rooted and flashed a "custom" ROM (or does this fix not count as a custom ROM/0, I'm assuming that I now would need to flash a custom ROM again for Jelly Bean or would I be able to receive the update when Voda push this out to UK SIII devices?

Or should I just flash the original stock ICS ROM [and lose root and get the "cell standby" issue back?]? I realise this is veery subjective "should" but I just wanted to get the thoughts of some rather more knowledgeable people than myself on this...

Thanks..

Flash a custom JB rom.

It is quicker and clean than wait for vodafone banded version.

Thanks man. But I'm gonna wait for the custom JB ROMs to become more "polished" for want of a better word! So flashing a stock ROM you wouldn't recommend?
Flash stock ROM when it gets released or leaked. No need to do it via OTA. It will probably be a much longer wait for that to happen anyway.

I have Galaxy S2. Is there a huge performance difference in the S3 over the S2 especially with the JB rom? I don't have access to play with one.

Not really to be honest. The S3 is definitely smoother but not faster.

My old S2 on gingerbread was still faster than any rom I've had on my S3.

But the S3 is more powerful.

Samsung start Galaxy S III Jelly Bean update
TweetSamsung has just started with rolling out the first official Jelly Bean updates for the Galaxy S III.

The Jelly Bean update will have a few enchantments like:
- Better performance, thanks to Project Butter it’s even smoother and faster
- Reorganized settings menu
- 2 Homescreen modes
- New Notifications bar
- S Note instead of S Memo
- Google Now
- Resizable Pop-up play screen

These are just a few enchantments, you’ll probably notice some more changements. Samsung will roll out the Jelly Bean update in more countries later this month. You can use KIES or OTA (Over-The-Air) to update to the latest version of Android. Make sure you’re on WIFI and that your battery is at least on 50%.
If you want to flash, you’ll need to download the firmware and use ODIN to flash.

Make sure you follow @SamKiesUpdates on twitter to get all updates.

The first country is…
Poland I9300XXDLIB/I9300OXFDLI1

I thought that the D in the name indicated a development build?

We were all wrong. It's easy to make assumptions like that.

By the way, with JB rolling out now, this will turn into a funny discussion. Better go pop a bowl of popcorn, sit back and enjoy.

Because, now when it's officially here, everyone will expect it to work 100%, so it'll be funny to watch disappointing people complain about something not working.

Funny! People are reporting this release still has SMemo instead of Snote.

    Consider this thread your one place to chat, moan and guess when the jelly bean update will come out, or anything else related to jellybean on the SGS3.

    I need everyones help to keep this thread somewhat sane, report any trolling or flaming and don't respond to it.

    All other threads on this topic will be closed.

    Keep all your posts in this thread polite and make sure you follow the rules. I have bolded a few points.

    For all your JB OTA needs, see this thread

    1. Search before posting.

    Use one of our search functions before posting, whether you have a question or something new to share, it's very likely someone already asked that question or shared that news.

    2. Member conduct.

    2.1 Language: XDA is a worldwide community. As a result what is ‘ok’ to say in your part of the world may not be ok in someone else’s part of the world. Please think about who is reading what you write. Keep in mind that what you think of as acceptable use of language may not be acceptable to others. Conversely, while reading member posts, remember that word you find offensive may not be to the writer. Tolerance is a two way street.

    2.2 Nudity: XDA is used by people of all ages, including minors. It's not acceptable to post nude/pornographic imagery, which includes exposure of the male or female genitalia or of female breasts.

    2.3 Flaming: XDA was founded as a group of people sharing information about certain mobile phones. Sharing does not involve virtual yelling (flaming) it does involve working together to solve problems in an environment of mutual respect and understanding. Losing your temper and flaming another member, or group of members, is not acceptable behavior.

    2.4 Personal attacks, racial, political and/or religious discussions: XDA is a discussion forum about certain mobile phones. Mobile phones are not racial, political, religious or personally offensive, therefore none of these types of discussions are permitted on XDA.

    2.5 Courtesy towards other Members: Treat new members the way you would like to have been treated when you were a new member. When dealing with any member, provide them with guidance, advice and instruction when you can and always with respect and courtesy. Never post in a demanding, argumentative, disrespectful or self-righteous manner.

    2.6 All members are expected to read and adhere to the XDA rules.

    3. Post only using a clear subject and message.

    You're most likely to receive a helpful answer to your question if you use a short subject title that describes your problem and a message that explains in detail what your problem is and what you've tried to solve it.

    4. Use the English language.

    We understand that with all the different nationalities not everyone speaks English well, but please try. If you're really unable to post in English use an online translator, You're free to include your original message in your own language below the English translation.

    5. Post a message only once.

    As a large forum we don't need unnecessary clutter, You're free to edit your message as you like, so if you do not receive an answer revisit your message and see if you can describe your problem better. Not everyone is online at the same time, it might take a while before you receive an answer.

    6. Do not post warez.

    If a piece of software requires you to pay to use it, then pay for it. We do not accept warez nor do we permit any member to promote or describe ways in which Warez, cracks, serial codes or other means of avoiding payment, can be obtained. This is a site of developers, i.e. the sort of people who create such software. When you cheat a software developer, you cheat us as a community

    7. Do not spam.

    If you wish to advertise a product, contact us we provide ads. But do not post it in the forums, it will be removed and you're likely to receive a ban.
    You are however allowed to sell used goods like your own device, parts of your device or accessories for your device in the marketplace forum, please read the rules there before posting. (This rule includes signatures, if you use a signature it will appear in your post)

    8. Donations.

    We appreciate all donations to xda-developers.com, it keeps our forum online and well maintained. As a user you're allowed to ask for donations in your signature as a thank you for your hard work. However donations up front are not allowed, this forum is about sharing, not about getting paid to do something, that's what your job is for.

    9. Don't get us in trouble.

    Don't post copyrighted materials or do other things that will obviously lead to legal trouble. If you wouldn't do it on your own homepage, you probably don't want to do it here either. This does not mean we agree with everything the software piracy lobby try to impose on us, it simply means you cannot break any laws here, since we'll end up dealing with legal hassle caused by you. Please use common sense: respect the forum, its users, and those that write great code.

    10. Help others if you can.

    If you see posts from others where you can help out, please do. This place exists because people are helping each other, and even if you are relatively new to the matter, there's probably already quite a few people newer than you that would benefit from what you've learned. Don't be shy.

    11. Don’t post with the intention of selling something.
    Don’t use XDA to advertise your product or service. Proprietors of for-pay products or services, may use XDA to get feedback, provide beta access, or a free version of their product for XDA users and offer support, but not to post with the intention of selling. This includes promoting sites similar/substantially similar to XDA-Developers.com.
    Do not post press releases, announcements, links to trial software, or commercial services. unless you’re posting an exclusive release for XDA-Developers.com.
    Encouraging members to participate in forum activities on other phone related sites is prohibited.
    Off-site downloads are permitted if the site is non-commercial and does not require registration.
    Off-site downloads from sites requiring registration are NOT encouraged but may be permitted if the following conditions are met:
    A) the site belongs to a member of XDA-Developers with at least 1500 posts and 2 years membership who actively maintains XDA-Developers' support thread(s) / posts, related to the download,
    B) the site is a relatively small personal website without commercial advertising/links (i.e. not a competitor forum-based site with purposes and aims similar to those of XDA-Developers.com.)
    12. Using the work of others.

    If you are developing something that is based on the work of another Member, you MUST first seek their permission, and you must give credit to the member whose work you used. If a dispute occurs about who developed / created a piece of work, first try to settle the matter by private message and NOT in open forum. If this fails then you may contact a moderator with clear evidence that the work was created by you.

    Convincing evidence will result in copied work being removed. If there is no clear evidence you created the work then in the spirit of sharing all work will remain posted on the forums.

    As an addition, developers have the right to hold exclusivity over their work for as long as it is deemed necessary by the dev or freely share it. However, if the work is claimed as exclusive, it must remain as such. No selective sharing will be allowed (ie allowing certain people to use it and not others). Should the dev decide to start sharing the work with others, the work automatically becomes fair game for all to use.

    In regards to permissions, same rules remain for this but if permission was already given, unless there is a very valid reason, it cannot be revoked (same applies to major updates on the work). Under that same premise, permissions cannot be denied unless the work is exclusive or under severe circumstances.

    In plain English: If you want to keep your work exclusive, go for it. However, if you are going to share your work, do it fairly.

    These rules apply to all software posted on XDA (including but not limited to ROMs, RUUs, apps, games, kernels, themes, icons, etc) unless that software comes with a license that waives these rules.

    13. Advertising and Income Generation

    Commercial advertising, advertising referral links, pay per click links and other income generating methods are forbidden. Do not use xda-developers as a means to make money.

    14. Create only one User Account

    You are allowed one User Account at xda-developers. If you create additional accounts, Moderators will disable them and your original account may also be disabled or infracted.

    15. Keep posts/threads on-topic

    Whilst a minor amount of off-topic posting may be overlooked, the general rule is your posts / threads must be relevant to the Forum / thread in which you are posting.

    16. Bumping Threads (posting simply to force a thread to the top of the thread queue)
    Do not "bump" a thread more than once per 24 hours.

    hysteria seems to be setting in

    I've been following this thread for a few weeks now because I'm as keen as everyone else to get my hands on Jelly Bean, but it seems like people are letting their frustrations get the better of them.

    Thing is, no amount of ranting and raving on here (or any other forums) will change Samsung or the various networks rollout schedules. The rollout will happen for you when it happens.

    If you've got it already then great. If you haven't, then remember patience is a virtue and try and be virtuous on here...and if you haven't got the patience then because you're on here then try one of the many JB roms that are available.

    I love the XDA Developers site and it's helped me many times over the years (and I've even tried to help others myself in the past), but the one thing I dislike about the whole site (which unfortunately isn't unique to XDA) is that people are all too ready to take their frustrations out on others for usually very little reason (broken English, basic queries or sometimes just sheer pig headedness) - I sense I might get flamed for my opinions, but all I want to say is get some perspective people....Yes, we all want Jelly Bean...but it's ONLY a phone operating system upgrade - it's not going to make you handsome or rich, it's not going to cure all the world's ills, and it won't win you the man or woman of your dreams. What it will probably do is improve the user experience of your phone a little and cause some incompatability problems with some of your apps.

    Just be patient people, enjoy the phone as it is and be thankful you are lucky enough to be in a position to own what is essentially a luxury item.

    Have fun, enjoy your gadgets and respect the folk on here!!

    WHy are so many people moaning about Samsung not releasing JB for all their devices?? How many other manufactureres have released it for their top line handsets???

    It shouldn't be that difficult to update to a new version.

    1. Update AOSP repository to latest version
    2. Merge device specific patches
    3. Update in-house software
    4. Update device firmwares
    5. Test, pack and release

    If it took custom rom developers DAYS to do this without: proper documentation, a reference implementation, and intimate in-house knowledge of the device; why does it take manufactures MONTHS to release updates? That's why everyone with an android device is constantly moaning about the manufacturers, with good reason.
