Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean Update Quietly Rolls Out In Another Country

By  | 

The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the Samsung Galaxy S3 has hit the winter-darkened shores of Sweden three weeks after popping up in Poland. If you’re in Europe, you may be getting an early Christmas present, it seems, so let’s keep our fingers crossed.

Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update hits Sweden

The update has already come out in South Korea, and is now in Europe, so surely it’s planning to cross the Atlantic at some point soon… (Is it just me, or does this sound more like the progress of The Black Death than an Android roll-out?)

The Swedish build for the Samsung Galaxy S3 is Android 4.1.1 I9300XXDLIH. The Consumer Software Customization (CSC) for this release is I9300VDSDLI1, which looks like it’s for use in unbranded handsets.

If you own a compatible Samsung Galaxy S3 and you’re brave enough to risk bricking, then try out the unofficial update by flashing the firmware via ODIN. If you’re a bit more timid, keep looking at KIES to see if the update’s on there as well. As for US Samsung Galaxy S3 rumors, the last reports hint towards the T-Mobile, Sprint & AT&T models getting the Jelly Bean bump in November.

The Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 remains an unknown at this point.
