Samsung May Be Rolling Out Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean Update on August 29th | The Droid Guy

Bros,
Samsung is releasing JB at the end of the month, this means most of you will get JB in Spring, I'm on Sprint and will wait until 2015 for my JB update.

Jellybean is great, I'm on 4.1.1 on a vzw Incredible2. Aeroevan rom + capacitive buttons disabled so I can try out on-screen buttons full-time.

I like it, but the screen scaling seems off on my phone since it's a bit of a hack, but a well-done hack nonetheless.

Fingers crossed HTC releases ICS for it soon so the real nerds have some source code to work from.

pls fedex tissues so that I my cry into them and find a new line of work.

honestly I dont care about quad core. my single snapdragon core in my original Droid Incredible is fast enough most of the time except when apps are updating. when they are updating, **** happens on a "you will wait" basis. it sucks *****.

does having the second (third, fourth) core eliminate that issue so that background tasks like app updates and syncing dont bring the UI to a standstill?
Y8's I only have a dual core processor and my **** feels slow during updates. i'd suspect it's more of a memory issue than a processor issue.

They always feel slow during updates. It hogs up a ton of resources. I have found the newer versions of android have been faster during updates than older, and with the new play store it will only download 1 thing at a time even on wifi, rather than downloading everything at once then installing them in order.

I'm confused. Is there anyway to make a back-up or image of my current, factory ROM as it sits now on the phone without rooting first? I'm want to install CM10, but don't want to "start over" if I go back to my factory ROM.

get titanium backup pro. you can back up your apps and settings with that and then restore them to a stock rom install.

of course if you're going to install CM, you're going to already be rooted and can do a nandroid backup then.

fairly certain you can root, nandroid, CM, restore stock, unroot. but check on that. nandroid really is the best solution for "how it was before"

I want an image of the phone the way it sits now, so I can return it if there is a hardware problem.

i used nandroid to backup my phone but have never reverted to it. I've had my phone for 2 years so it's kind of moot. but as y8's said nandroid s kind of the standard for backups.

I was on jb for a week but went back to special version of gingerbread. since sprint is such garbage i got a version of gb that uses a different modem driver. I can now permanently roam on verizon with this combination of modem/software. I've been much happier. now my speeds are 10x faster and i don't randomly lose signal and miss calls.

Well, this has turned into a nightmare. I can't seem to get anything installed and I'm back on the factory ROM which sucks because I hate hate hate TouchWiz.

my googlage tells me you want to install something called odin. I guess it's a kernel with clockworkmod recovery built into it?

Install ClockworkMod ( CWM ) Recovery on Samsung Galaxy S3 Sprint

is that what you've been failing at?

I'm running ODIN and I've tried this with two TAR files.
  1. The phone works fine in Kies
  2. Shut-down Kies and double check the task manager to be sure it's shut down
  3. Put the phone into recovery
  4. Plug in phone
  5. Open ODIN
  6. ODIN finds the phone
  7. Point to the TAR file
  8. ...and then every time ODIN hangs on the NAND-write process and will go no further

Are you choosing phone or PDA in oding for the tar? you want PDA (at least this is how it is for the older galaxy phones). And make sure dont have format selected. Also see if you need a pit file too for your phone to work theoretically with mine you dont need the pit but I always have better luck with it.

Is there a way of resetting the flash counter on the S3?

At's all well having a backup to restore to, but if the flash counter is incremented Samsung will still know you've been messing about with stuff.

Ginger bread was my worst battery life rom, like worst than stock froyo or eclair. ICS has so far been about as good as most custom froyo roms.

Can you get it back into recovery at all? But only the stock recovery? I've had cwm need to be flashed a couple times to take hold on occasion. And I've also run into times where I couldnt get into recovery without entering by turning the phone on by inserting the battery. IE start with a phone with no battery, hold buttons for recovery, insert battery.
