The Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy S III is steadily spreading to more countries in Europe, in addition to Poland, Sweden, France, Spain, Romania, and Austria. Today, it started rolling out in Italy (H3G), United Kingdom (H3G), Switzerland (Swisscom), and Ireland (Three), as well as on another Austrian carrier called 3 Austria. As far as I can tell, H3G, Three, and 3 are all owned by the same giant company - Hutchison Whampoa (some names are even interchangeable), so four out of five pushes today seem to be a coordinated effort.

Curiously, the majority of the updates (those pushed by Hutchinson-owned carriers) are no longer I9300XXDLIH dated September 28, but rather I9300XXDLJ1 which is a fresher build dated October 8. As before, if you don't get an OTA prompt, you can try to hook up your S III to Kies and check there, or download the full ROMs at either SamMobile or Samsung-Updates (neither site is officially endorsed by Samsung, in case there is any confusion about their nature).

    And finally Italy has received its update. It took so long but looks like the await is over (for H3G owners at least)...

    Finally got to the UK. Well, it wasn't too bad of a wait, all things considered, and it did come out in October exactly like they promised

    Still no unbranded version in sweden..

    Shame that the Unbranded version take longer... Samsung getting it all wrong, we're the ones that have paid FULL PRICE for your phone without being locked to a contract, yet we're made to wait!

      chill

    • Ionut Costica

      Strangely enough, I have a branded version that I paid full price for... Then again, the 32 gig version was only available here from a single operator, so -- branded.

    AND THE RESPONSE FROM HEAPS OF PEOPLE ASKING ABOUT THE UPDATE ON THE SAMSUNG AUSTRALIA FACEBOOK PAGE, THEY CAN'T MAKE ANY COMMENTS ABOUT JELLY BEAN., SAME SCRIPTED RESPONSE OVER AND OVER AGAIN AND AGAIN.

            The funny thing is, our brains are trained to read normal capitalization. When every letter is capitalized it it harder to read, especially with certain fonts. Sometimes I give up reading when every letter is capitalized since it makes my eyes hurt, or I feel lazy.
