Over the weekend we reported news on the Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update for O2 and that they experienced a few issues with pushing Android 4.1 to users, which had been due to problems that needed to be fixed with the help of Samsung. This report also touched on Vodafone UK going live with Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean today, and now we can confirm that statements have been provided from both networks about the availability of the new software.
We’ve had confirmation from a number of PR readers that Vodafone UK has delivered the Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update this morning, and users are telling us that they have it already. It is good to remember this is a rollout so we don’t expect every Vodafone smartphone owner to have the update straight away, but you can certainly expect it very soon.
The image below shows a statement in regard to the Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update on O2 UK, which has only just been submitted to their official forums within the last hour. This confirms that the Android 4.1 update is live on O2 handsets, so feel free to hit the comments with your UK location and if you have the Jelly Bean update yet?
Do you have any problems after installing Jelly Bean on the Samsung Galaxy S3? As we said above the software updates will be staggered, so this would also explain some of our readers reporting problems with the Jelly Bean roll out, which in most cases is just an expected delay. We’ve heard from a few people asking where their Three UK Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update is? If you’re on that network and have the update, should’ve launched at the end of last week, then let everyone know.
