The Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update is getting closer, that’s certain. Samsung has already confirmed the phone will be soon updated to Android 4.1.1 during its Unpacked event in Berlin, Germany last week, although it did fail to reveal rollout dates.
Now we’re going to tell you that more North American Galaxy S3 owners can install a pre-release Android 4.1.1 build for their handsets, as long as they don’t mind running an unofficial ROM – not that we’d ever encourage anyone to pursue such procedures.
A Canadian Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean build has been leaked, version I747MVLALI2c, which means Rogers, Telus and Bell subscribers that have purchased Samsung’s flagship device can perform the unofficial upgrade – technically the leaked ROM is meant to run on the Bell’s Galaxy S3 version, but MobileSyrup reports it’s compatible with Rogers and Telus too:
At this point in order to install the leak you need to be running Bell’s version of the LH1 firmware and install this 308MB OTA update from the official recovery, or through Kies. Custom ROMs are being developed as we speak and will likely be available in the next 12-24hrs for all variants of the i747M.
Let’s hear it from Canadians then, are you going to upgrade to Jelly Bean these days?
