I9300XXDLG4 – Galaxy S III Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean TEST firmware

Follow: Firmware news

We Of SamMobile received the first firmware for the Galaxy S III based on Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean.
This is the first firmware after many rumors about Jelly Bean for the Galaxy S III.
We already tweeted that Samsung is busy with this kind of update.
The update by KIES and OTA (over the air) will start at the end of this month begin next month.
Because there are many die-hard Samsung fans we want to give you the chance to test the first Jelly Bean rom by Samsung.

This is an PRE-RELEASE version so not official from KIES.
We want to give you a BIG warning when you want to test this firmware!
You will lose your warranty so please do not try this when you are not 100% sure!

The firmware: I9300XXDLG4 is based on Android 4.1.1
The build date is July 31 2012.

We have found a few visible changes.
- A new clock (in line with JB vanilla) in the notification bar.
- A function called “Dormant mode”
- Google Now is accessed by touching the Google Search widget
- A couple of new Live Wallpapers
- “Palm swipe” lets you take a screenshot
- Reboot into “safe mode” (maybe just in test release)
- There’s probably more new features that we haven’t discovered yet. Please share your findings!

We also had some troubles, for instance the internal SDCARD got formatted and some apps can’t be installed due to problems with smdl2tmp1.asec (which can’t be found at all). These problems could also be local to the specific device. A good suggestion is to make backup of everything prior flash

Inside the download package you only will see the PDA code.
We have no CSC or MODEM file of this firmware. So please make sure you know what you do! It is possible to flash this on a csc and modem from ICS.

You can find the firmware by OPEN Europe in the download section
We reported this firmware with WARNING code because this is a LEAK and not an OFFICIAL KIES release!

ADVICE of SamMobile is wait for 15 days to get the official updates by KIES or OTA!!!!

But for developers this might be the key for a full working rom they are developing.

Flash instructions.
- Make sure to have an ORIGINAL rom before attempting to flash. (could brick if not)
- Unzip the file
- Open Odin 1.85
- Restart phone in download mode (Home+power+vol down)
- Connect phone and wait until you get a yellow sign in Odin
- Add CODE_I9300XXDLG4_11164_REV00_eng_mid_noship.tar.md5 to PDA
- Make sure re-partition NOT ticked
- Start flash, sit back an wait a few minutes.
- Once the phone have booted, you’ll probably get into a boot loop.
- Remove the battery and put it back again.
- Boot into recovery mode (Home+power+vol up)
- Choose to wipe/factory reset. (THIS WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR DATA!)
- Reboot. and you are good to go! (hopefully)

    If you want the real Google UI buy NEXUS devices! Don’t blame Samsung for things like this.
    Only 1% of all Galaxy owners cares about updates :)

    How we get things is easy people at Samsung like our work so they leak information.

    I have a colleague, who had her S2 working at 2.3.5, bought a coupe of months ago. She didn’t care about the updates, she was only worried if her “galaxy” background would stay. I updated her S2? now she’s happy, her galaxy satyed there )))))

    so, the 1% looks to be a correct number :)

    My problem is not solved after flashing the rom a couple of times, with and without wipe data/factory reset and or wipe cache. (my microphone is not working when calling)
    I had a official stock samsung rom on my i9300. Anyways something went wrong. I will flash the jelly bean rom again after flashing an official ics rom (I9300XXBLG6). Hope this will work for me!

    (my microphone is not working when calling) I not a pro or something but i was wondering if this could have been the problem! I am using baseband version I9300BULF1. Could this me a issue for flashing the JB rom? Does anybody else have an idea?

    I’m sorry but this is a shity rom! Not sammobile worth! I had the same issue with the agenda not syncing besides my microphone issues (recieving and outgoing calls)! I never had issues with flashing a rom on sammobile.

    Sorry for the stupid question but what is the version of Touchwizz on this firmware ?

    Perhaps the Galaxy Note have the same.

    Thank for advance

    Yes, I agree that this ROM is shit… It freezes randomly and reboot every 10 minutes after sole little vibrations. Back to CM10 and wait 15 days for official update (if it’s true). BTW thanks SAMMOBILE for giving all the latest things to us.

    I9300XXBLH4 works fine for me. feels solid however quadrant performance is really low. the quadrant performace vs the feel performance do not match.

    I9300XXDLG4 worked fine for me the only flaw i had was the google calendar not syncing at all.

    I Just udated my S3 to 4.1.1 2weeks back and Im highly disappointed with it as its more lagging now. some of the apps take time to open eg. gallery, when i take a screenshot it just doesnt saves and it keeps on showing in the notification bar ‘saving screenshot’ Battery power has decreased and Ive noticed that phone is taking time to recharge.
