International Galaxy S III Gets Jelly Bean, the List Keeps Growing!

It seems the list of devices receiving Jelly Bean ports is growing by the second. The GSM Galaxy Nexus has already received an official version, while the international HTC One X has received a port.

Not to be outdone, the Samsung Galaxy SIII i9300 has received it’s own intial Jelly Bean port thanks to XDA Recognized Developer faryaab. So far the ROM has:

What Works:
•ADB
•Touchscreen
•Hardware Acceleration
•Notification LED
•Cellular Rado (But No Audio so no Calls)
•Physical Buttons
•SMS
•Accelerometer
•Charging
•Maybe More

What Doesn’t work:
•Wi-Fi/Bluetooth/NFC
•Audio
•Camera
•MTP
•Storage
•Maybe more

Just remember that like most ports in the intial phases, this is still not yet ready to be a daily driver. However, if you are a developer looking to contribute, or are just a someone who wants to live on the bleeding edge of technological glory, head on over to the original thread and give this a spin.

These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
