It has been an amazing couple of weeks for the Samsung Galaxy S3, and especially the amount of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean leaks taking place, which so far have been for multiple carriers. In Canada the Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean leaks have included Rogers, Bell, and Telus, while in the United States we’ve seen leaks for Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T over a number of weeks.
Last week Samsung officially said that the Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update would arrive “soon“, and noting that the leaks are very stable releases also shows that we must be extremely close to the update rolling out. Most Galaxy S3 users don’t want to install these leaked versions thanks to a fear of something going wrong, which in some circumstances includes downloading a file from an unofficial website, flashing your device from the Galaxy S3 recovery, and then also making sure you have a certain software version before updating the firmware.
Things can be made easier from custom Galaxy S3 ROMs for Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, and these make the install process a little easier with support in developer forums that are very useful when you run into problems.
Poor Samsung Galaxy S3 battery life fixed — we’ve heard from a number of people that have installed one of the leaked Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean updates, and many report an improvement in battery life, which some state double what they had before. These are unverified reports, although we are sure most users would be happy with any improvement considering the problems reported in the past with the current software.
In most cases bad battery life can be down to software only, and this has been seen with poor iPhone 4S battery life that gained an official word from Apple, and some new iOS software that fixed these problems. If you own a Samsung Galaxy S3 with bad battery life then you could see this fixed once Jelly Bean is released.
If you live in Canada and want the latest Jelly Bean leak, then head over to this page for version I747MVLALI2c. You can read a wealth of information here, which details custom ROMS for the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 SCH-I535 and how to install Jelly Bean step-by-step.
You can count on the official public Android 4.1 Jelly bean update being released to Samsung Galaxy S3 owners in Sept, so it isn’t much longer to wait if you worry about installing leaked software, and in our opinion you’re better to wait considering we’re so close, unless you want one of these custom ROMS that is. The Latest T-Mobile Jelly Bean leak can be found on this page, thanks to one of the most popular developer forums.
