    Updating my galaxy s3 to 4.3 manualy

    Hello every one,
    i have a galaxy s3 with the stock 4.1.2 (ILO) now i have just received word that the new update has been released but it seems that there is a problem with the OTA update and the kies update but the new Rom is available on sammobile so i went ahead and downloaded it to my computer and i want to transfer the files to my external storage and go the stock boot-loader(volume up + power + main) and select the option for "install update from external storage".
    My question is this ,will this update my device to the new firmware of 4.3 or wil it do something else like bricking my phone?

    thank you.

    Download the Sammobile firmware to your PC.
    Now look here for how to install with Odin:

    But, I would advise that you wait for the Kies/OTA update.

    The best scenario is that Odin will not install the firmware as it will not recognise the file.

    If your phone is rooted, you can use the method you mention if you install Mobile Odin.

    As it is not an update file in the correct format - again nothing will happen.
    But why risk it?

    i don't think its worth risking it that's why i am asking about it here maybe some one is a sort of professional or has tried it at the very least can tell me more about that option.

    I see.
    Unfortunately that is not what you asked.

    It is possible to install firmware using the Recovery 'apply update from external storage', but not the sammobile firmware.
    If you would like to know more, then take a look at using CWM Recovery:
