Leaked Android 4.3 (UCUEMJ2) Update for Galaxy S III I747
Firmware updates and leaks seem to be popping up left and right these days. We recently saw a leaked update to Android 4.3 (XXUEMJ5) for the Samsung Galaxy Note II, corresponding to the XXUEMJ5 update that was officially released to the Galaxy S 4 a week earlier. Now, there is a similar update for the I747 variant of the Samsung Galaxy S III, albeit with a different build display ID.
XDA Recognized Developer designgears shared the leak in our forums in Heimdall-flashable form. As has been seen on recent Samsung firmwares for other devices, this brings SELinux and KNOX to the device.
Then for those who would prefer to only flash the update or the bootloader/modem, XDA Recognized Developer loserskater repacked the update, separating the pieces.

The direction of smartwatches is unclear to even the biggest OEMs, and with every new option there seems to be polarizing dissonances from what people and OEMs want and what they both think they want. We've documented many of the reasons as to...
