  • - Driving mode
  • - Actionable notifications

The update – build number JJSS15J.I535VRUCML1 – is making its way to devices already and should finish its rollout in the next few days. If you’re unwilling to wait, you can do a manual check in the Settings » About phone » Software updates menu, or grab the firmware from our firmware section once it becomes available.

Last week I installed Spanish Android 4.3 update. The configuration menu has changed. I can’t find the widgets I had before for the screen when the phone is blocked, specially the stocks bottom slide bar with up to 20 configurable stocks from Yahoo Finance. It was very useful to watch over my stocks without having to unblock my phone. Where is it?

when 4.3 update reaches india? really sucks. at least they should have given 4.2.2 in case they are not able to give 4.3 because of marketing strategies. Come on samsung it enough customers who bought S3 are not happy with you and also the new mobiles that are coming with 4.3 but s3 remains with 4.1.2 not really fare. you really lack in software updates. Local companies mobiles are coming with 4.2.2. if you continue this kind shit to improve the sales of new mobiles you will not do good in 2014 things are getting change.

Where’s the firmware in firmawar section??? I didn’t find any 4.3 firmware for sch-i535

3 years 1 month ago

Hi All,
I have noticed that S3 i9300 with JB 4.1.2 has problems managing memory. When you clear the memory it drags itself mine even though it cleans it. If you go there again after the first cleansing it appears that there are programs in the background that are not cleared. Perhaps what makes the new software have a problem there anyway despite new software with JB 4.3
