The European Galaxy S III Jelly Bean update first turned up in Poland about three weeks ago. At the time, we were hoping it was a good indication that the rest of Europe would follow soon after, but that's about the last we've heard of it until today. In the meantime, Samsung did fire up the update in Korea and reiterated it would soon show up in the States.

A new Android 4.1.1 build I9300XXDLIH just surfaced, this time destined for Sweden. The CSC (Consumer Software Customization) for this release is I9300VDSDLI1 which appears to point in the direction of unbranded handsets. If you have a compatible device, you can attempt to flash the firmware using ODIN, check Kies in case it's available there too, or head over to this XDA post to discuss the release.

Hopefully, this means Samsung has fixed all the bugs it found during the Polish rollout and we can expect a wider release this time around. Otherwise, third time's the charm, right?


Thanks, Justin

    Anyone in Sweden who flashed this? Or, perhaps, you're getting an OTA instead?

    • Bala

      heard its available on kies too

      • jammer

        Yeah, but Kies is basically iTunes with a different name. So I'm wondering why anyone would want to use it.

    • Viktor Å

      Some Swedish users have received an OTA update, but so far it seems limited to devices that are Telenor (a major Swedish carrier) branded.

        But in Serbia :(

    The link provided in regards to a State-side release points to a posting about ICS instead

    im a bit confused with why its taking so long i got the galaxy s3 4g in australia about a month ago and it came preinstalled with jellybean i guess i got lucky though as mine is a true 4g with 2gb of ram and quad core as well as jelly bean

    • http://www.linuxdistroreview.com/ Bo

      Sucks to be you man. I got the version with 8 GB dual-channel DDR5 RAM and AMD Fusion 2.5 GHz APU. Was running 4.2 out of the box but shhh!

    This is a branded carrier ROM, not worth to flash on unbranded phones

    Its rather very sad that there are so many releases/leaks out there for JellyBean on our Samsung Galaxy S III's .. but NOT ONE leak for the AT&T version SGH-i747 .. I heard through the grapevines that there is a release out there for our AT&T SGS3's, however, the fella was going on about "not having permission to release" !!!! Well .. who the hell gives permission to release all the other leaks !!!!
