Galaxy S3 Update to Android 4.2.1

Does anyone know when Sprint S3 users will finally get the update to 4.2.1? I tried to use the old trick with the Google Services Framework to force the OTA update, but have had no luck.

What's in 4.2.1 that we don't already have in the latest version of code?!?

for the same reason they wont kick out any info on the LTE deployment. to many things can delay it and once again make them out to be liars.. for what its worth you will usually hear about any updates coming out to a specific phone through either XDA developers or some other 3rd party site before you hear it from sprint. if you look at most of the phones to date an update comes out roughly 4-6 months after the last update..more towards the 6+ though depending on what they run into and how many times it has to be sent back for fixes and whatnot

The current update is 4.1.2 and 4.2 has not been released. No carriers, even Apple ever reveal when an update is coming due to the problems of scheduling. I have an S3 and I there hasn't been anything on the updates that are anything to get excited about.

No one will ever say when an update is coming because all it will do is angry those who want the update. I go back to the HTC Hero days and Sprint said "spring" for an update. The board were filled with rants in March that "spring" is here, we should get the update, I hate Sprint, lets boycott, and the hate when on and on. Sprint finally tweeted an update the month which made it worse. So, I'm sure the policy from now on is say nothing, your much safer that way.

only time ANY info will kick out is if someone like XDA gets a leaked update and posts about them messing with it or testing it...thats about it.

I'm like Samsung, I took a good idea ant patented it. Its mine now, you will have to pay me royalties if you mention anything about an update. You will be receiving a summons soon to cease and desist.

Asking about an update are like the kids in the back seat of the car on vacation.

"Are we there yet?"

"Are we there yet?"

"Are we there yet?"

"When are we getting the update?"

"When are we getting the update?"

"When are we getting the update?"

"When are we getting the update?"

"When are we getting the update?"

"When are we getting the update?"

QUIET!!!!

you should patent something worthwhile and of use lol. easier way to transfer app data from one phone to another..etc...something that can be of major use for many with one goal in mind..to make things easier
