Pre-Release Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OTA for Verizon Galaxy S3 is now available
Just two variants of Galaxy S3 have received Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update – Sprint and international. Other variants are still waiting but it seems that it’s Verizon turn because a pre-release Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update is now available for the Verizon Galaxy S3, thanks to XDA developer member jucytec for bringing the update to us.
It make sense that Verizon Galaxy S3 will get the final Jelly Bean OTA soon in near future, might in few weeks. But those of you can’t wait for official release, you can install this Jelly Bean OTA update for Verizon Galaxy S3 manually but it’s important to note that since this is leaked update, it might not be stable for the daily use and there also may be a few bugs with it.
Before you install update make a make a backup of your device data such as SMS, internet setting, contacts music files etc because the below procedure may wipe data, you can sync your contacts with Gmail account and for messages use SMS apps, lastly use file expert app to backup apps. You can download the VRBLI5 Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean from XDA. Install it at your own risk, neither me or developer will be held responsible if your phone gets damaged.
