We brought you news of the international Samsung Galaxy S3 getting a leaked update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and it wasn’t long before Samsung began the official Android 4.1.1 roll out to what is undoubtedly among the most successful smartphones of the year. Today, Samsung has released the latest official 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for the device. It brings several new features, most notably one which we’ve already seen on the Galaxy Note II.
Sammobile obtained the update, and XDA Recognized Developer Faryaab shared the news with us. Faryaab also updated his stock firmware thread with a download link for the latest release.
- Android 4.1.2 JZO54K
- Multi-View (Multi-windows multitasking as in Galaxy Note II)
- Customizable notification panel
- Brightness slider in notification panel can now be disabled

You can download the ROM in Odin-flashable format from the stock firmwares thread. Flashing is done through Odin as usual. If you’re not familiar with the program, don’t worry. The thread has a quick guide for that process as well._________
