Samsung continued the European rollout of Android 4.1.1 to Galaxy S IIIs today with updates going live for carrier unbranded handsets in France and Germany. Jelly Bean is also hitting SGS III devices on France's third largest mobile operator called Bouygues.

To recap, here is how the JB update got pushed out all over Europe in recent weeks:

  • October 22: O2 in UK and Ireland; Vodafone in UK, Italy, Czech Republic, and Germany.
  • October 18: Hutchison Whampoa companies (Three, 3, H3G) in Italy, UK, Ireland, and Austria; Swisscom in Switzerland.
  • October 17: SFR in France; Vodafone in Spain and Romania; A1 in Austria; unbranded in Spain
  • October 15: Sweden (unbranded or Telenor, it's not clear - the CSC for the release is VDS)
  • September 24: unbranded in Poland

As always, check your update notifications, pull via Kies, or download from unofficial ROM sites SamMobile or Samsung-Updates.

    I'm buying a Nexus 4 soon, as soon as it's available, but I wouldn't mind if Samsung could hurry up to update my SGS II. As good as an effort as CM10 is, it's not usable, the battery life is abysmal, it gets hotter, project butter doesn't fully works, there's also issues with the RIL.

    CM developers do as much as they can given how little information they have at their disposal, but I'm just sincerely waiting for the official JB build.

      to be honest cm isn't very good after cm 7.2 on any of my phones.

        How small is your brain? I think it's a important medical question, because your IQ seems way down the average.

        Just a couple of facts:

        (i) The SGS III already has JB, the rest is up to carriers (ii) Samsung already said they were going to update the SGS II to JB (iii) Smartphones don't exist in a vacuum, if OEMs can't deliver updates they will push many users into lands where updates are considered part of the package, and not something to be grateful about (iOS and WP8 devices).
