    Hi friends ..new firmware update for Samsung S3 is now available through Kies software so now you don’t have to force install it.

  • HrishikeshKadam

    I successfully updated my Samsung Galaxy S3 using Kies to 4.1.1 (xxLJ3) yesterday in Pune.
    Follow these steps :-
    1. Disconnect S3 from computer.
    2. Open Kies(updated) and goto -> Tools -> Firmware Upgrade and Initialization.
    3. Enter your model no i.e. GT-I9300 and click OK.
    4. Then Enter your s3’s serial number (Settings -> About device -> Serial number) and click OK.
    5. Now Kies will download the whole firmware approx 800 MB and will properly guide further for flashing original updates.
     
    Note: You didnt need to backup anything, neither contacts nor apps, msg etc.
     
    Try this n if successfull then reply me n also spread everywhere bcoz there are many s3 users eagerly waiting for this update.

      @HrishikeshKadam
       Hi, I did this and got updated my S3 to Jelly bean, but then this Jelly bean update is not very stable.
      I had following force close issues:
      1. RouchWiz crashes while trying to delete any home page
      2. My track crashes while changing the storage path
      3. HiQ-MP3 crashes whilee changing the settings
      4. rediffmail app crashes while changing the privacy options
      And few other apps that crashed.
      This is even after doing data/cache format and installing all apps afresh.
       
      i’m sure Samsung stopped 4.1.1 update to indian Galaxy S3 to nail down some of these instability issues, those who have not updated yet, I would rather suggest wait for few more days/weeks to get a stable build from Samsung.
       
      Thanks
      Anand

        @ahbhat  @HrishikeshKadam Anand – I have updated to JB two days ago the way Hrishikesh mentioned and have not found a single issue. Suggest you update it once more.

      • VaibhavSawant

        @ahbhat @HrishikeshKadam
        I also updated by same method and m facing some other issues
        1. Whenever i receive an incoming call the name of the saved contact is not flashed for a few seconds. Sometimes the display pic or previous caller is flashed for current call.
        2. Sometimes messages and dial automatically closes and returns me to home screen
        3. Sometimes after unlocking a distorted dialler is seen on screen.
        4. Inteface is pretty laggy has many bugs

       How to fix the problem of Serial Number. There are many users who are entering the correct serial number but most of us getting “PLease check the Serial number and try again”….? Whats the FIX?

      • manojpy

        @milinshandilya  @HrishikeshKadam  The only way to check the serial number is to remove the battery and check on the sticker which is stuck to the phone.  type the exact serial number and viola…

        • sowravshah

    • ashishkrishnan

      @HrishikeshKadam ….do we need to put our galaxy s3 to downloadibg mode……

    • ashishkrishnan

      @HrishikeshKadam ….do we need to put our galaxy s3 to downloadibg mode…… and what happens when we dont allow saving

      • manojpy

        @ashishkrishnan  @HrishikeshKadam Yes once you put the serial number on kies screen, it will automatically download drivers on your pc and and screen will instruct you to put the phone on downloading mode and connect to pc. Once you do that, it will download the huge update and install it on the phone. hope this helps.
