wm_GALAXY S III Product Image (10)_W

T-Mobile is currently in the process of pushing a fairly major update to its version of the Galaxy S III, which brings Android 4.1.2 and a slew of new don't-call-it-Touchwiz features.

New Features:

  • Multi-Window
  • Auto-pairing via NFC
  • enhanced Camera options
  • Sound Balance
  • Paper Artist
  • Samsung Gallery
  • Blocking Mode
  • Easy Mode


Before grabbing this one, you'll need to be on build T999UVDLJC, have at least 50% battery, and not be rooted. If those bases are covered, you can either elect to pull the 168MB update over-the-air, or, for those who prefer the tethered-to-a-computer method, via Samsung Kies.

Good luck, and have fun doing two things at once.

    I think that if you install using kies on your computer you can do it even if you are rooted. I know I can with my note 2. Just not OTA.
