Samsung Galaxy S III Toolkit Now Supports I9305

Previously, we brought you news of the Samsung Galaxy S III Toolkit by mskip. The toolkit includes various features and makes many otherwise tedious tasks easy. Since then, another version of the Galaxy S III was released, known as the Galaxy S III I9305. It’s quite similar to the I9300, except it comes with a LTE-enabled quad core Exynos processor. Now, it has been added to the Galaxy S III toolkit.

XDA Senior Moderator and Recognized Developer mskip has updated the regular Galaxy S III toolkit to include support for the I9305. It has all of the features of the regular version, including:
