Verizon Galaxy S III Now Receiving Android 4.3 OTA, Complete with KNOX and Added Bloat

Just yesterday, we wrote about how the Verizon variant of the HTC One finally received its Android 4.3 update---quite some time after the International variant and other US carrier variants. Well the Verizon-flavored One isn't the only device on America's largest carrier that is receiving the official Android 4.3 goods. Now, the Verizon Galaxy S III gets to join...

T-Mobile Galaxy S III LTE Finally Gets Android 4.3, Verizon S4 Gets Minor Bugfix OTA

These updates are for the T-Mobile Galaxy S III LTE (T999L) and the Verizon Galaxy S 4. The update for the T999L comes in at version T999LUVUBMK4 and brings the device up to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. In...

Android 4.3 (Now XXUGMK6) Update Resumes for the International Galaxy S III

No, it's not Android 4.4 KitKat, but it's a step in the right direction---one that was started a little over a month ago. You may remember that not too long ago Samsung pulled the Android 4.3 that was rolling out to the International Galaxy S III. This was the same XXUGMMJ9 firmware that was initially...

Rooted and KNOX-Free 4.3 for the Sprint Galaxy S III

Two days ago, we wrote about how the Sprint Samsung Galaxy S III was finally receiving its update to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. While the Moto X and the current fleet of Nexus devices have already received updates to Android 4.4 KitKat, any step forward is a step in the right direction, even if it is still...

Sprint and US Cellular Galaxy S III Android 4.3 Rollout Begins

While the Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T variants of the Moto X are already receiving the Android 4.4 love, most current generation non-Nexus devices still have many months to go before they are graced with KitKat in official capacity. In fact, the majority of consumer devices, especially those from last generation, haven't even been updated to Android 4.3. Thankfully, Samsung...

Leaked Samsung Memo Points to January KitKat Release for Galaxy S 4 and Note 3, S III and Note II by April

When Google released Android 4.4 KitKat 23 days ago, we all knew that it would be quite some time before most users would have the chance to play with the OS on their own devices. Sure, the Google Nexus 5 launched with the OS, but what about those with older phones? Thankfully, the update news...

Android 4.3 Rolling out to AT&T and T-Mobile Galaxy S III, AT&T Update Captured

With so much Android 4.4 KitKat news stirring about, you'd be forgiven for forgetting that other versions of the OS do indeed exist. That said, most devices other than the current Nexus lineup and certain Moto X variants haven't yet received the 4.4 goods in official capacity. Moreover, most end-user devices haven't even been updated to Android...

Galaxy Note II N7105 Receives Official Android 4.3, Update Pulled for S III and AT&T S 4

Samsung has had a relatively good track record as of late for providing (relatively) timely Android firmware updates. Most relatively recent flagship-level Samsung devices have already received official updates to the final version of Jelly Bean (Android 4.3), and this is no small feat considering the level of customization in their TouchWiz UI. New to the...

OmniROM 4.4 Test Builds Appear for the Galaxy S III I9300

As the flood of Android 4.4 KitKat ROMs continues to flow through, more and more devices are seeing the fruits of Google's latest and greatest version of Android. Most of these devices that are now getting aftermarket 4.4 builds will not see an official KitKat release for quite some time---that is, if they even receive...

Unofficial CM11 Appears for the Galaxy S III I747 and T999

Ever since Android 4.4 KitKat was released to AOSP, we knew that a deluge of source-built ROMs was incoming. We've since seen various devices get the goods---most of which will not receive official updates to KitKat for quite some time, if at all. Now, a build has appeared for the I747 (AT&T) and T999 (T-Mobile) variants...

KNOX-Free Android 4.3 Leak Now Official for the Galaxy S III

Two days ago, we posted about the leaked Android 4.3 (XXUGMJ9) firmware for the International version of the Samsung Galaxy S III (GT-I9300). At the time, we noted that the leak brought many of the new features previously seen on the latest Galaxy S 4 and  Galaxy Note 3 official firmwares, as well as what we saw on the leaked build for...

Leaked Android 4.3 (XXUGMJ9) for the Samsung Galaxy S III

With the KitKat Kraze (sorry, I had to) in full effect, you'd be forgiven for forgetting that other versions of Android do indeed exist---namely Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, a version that some OEMs are seemingly going to skip, in favor of direct updates to Android 4.4. However, this doesn't stop firmware leaks from appearing, and...
