Nice work guys and gals.  #1 exporters of potassium! Niiiice!

What should the baseband read after this update?



shout out to Sprint for being the first US carrier to get jelly bean on the GS3!




Eh... Kinda weak.... Latest android version is 4.1.2.


This is awesome. I had the Epic before and I wasnt sure of staying with Sprint before but now I am super happy. I love this phone and we get JB first?! BOOYAH!


People will never be happy...


If its not one thing its another.


Tical2000T, how is this weak? You're getting Jelly Bean on your phone (if you haven't rooted and already flashe LJ7). Yea, 4.1.2 is out but it wasn't anything major. Be grateful!




Anyone got this OTA update yet?


if its like when they pushed ICS for the gs2 then you could be waiting for a few weeks took me over a month to get it and the upgrade tanked my phone from a good phone to a pile of crap phone. i upgraded to the gs3 hoping they wouldnt try and update the OS anytime soon and here we are again. I like the way my phone is now so i probably wont download the upgrade until they fix all the bugs im sure it will have.
