Android 4.3 Jelly Bean leaks for Samsung Galaxy S III

3 November, 2013 Android

Samsung has dedicated to getting Android 4.3 Jelly Bean to the Galaxy S III flagship and also the official rollout should begin in a couple of weeks' time. If you cannot wait for the official release, you should check out the link before to get the beta version.

The beta version is apparently stable enough to operate like a daily driver, even though it could have a bug or two. It brings numerous UI changes, together with a new configurations menu with tabbed interface as available on newer Samsung flagships. The transparent notification bar is here now too.

Regrettably a lot of the icons within this build continue to be while using old design and Samsung Knox isn't enabled. Which should alternation in the ultimate Android 4.3 ROM for that Universe S III, though, which means you don't need to bother about missing around the security feature.

Should you seem like giving the most recent Jelly Bean version an effort run, you need to follow this connect to download the needed files. Should you not know the right path round the Odin flashing software, you will find a step-by-step tutorial in the via link below.
