Verizon Posts Jelly Bean Update Support Docs For Galaxy S III [Update: It Was Gone And Now It's Back]

Update: Verizon has since removed the document (maybe to fix the typo we pointed out, though who knows), and changed it back to the document for the last update to the GS3. We'll let you know if that changes.

Update #2: The document is back, this time correctly identifying Google Now as Google Now instead of Google Plus.

Verizon has posted up the official support documentation for the Android 4.1 update to the Galaxy S III, meaning an update should be on its way in the next week or two (typically - there are cases where delays happen).

Listen up, Pantech Breakout owners – Verizon has just announced an update to build S8995VWCA55F.BB that brings with it a laundry list of tweaks and enhancements.

Verizon's Galaxy Note II Bootloader Unlocked By XDA Hackers

While there may be a lot to like about being a Verizon customer - like coast to coast LTE coverage, for example - there's also a laundry list of things to dislike, too. Close to the top of that list is Verizon's bootloader policy: lock it down tight, to prevent modifications. But, you know just as much as I do, the Android modding community just won't settle for "no, you can't have ROM X on your device."

As such, Verizon's Note II is the newest victim to XDA's freedom fight, with famed hacker Adam Outler ringleading the whole shebang.

If you're a Verizon Wireless customer, and you're not looking to spend over $100 or so on an Android smartphone, your options aren't exactly limited at this point. If you want one that's relatively current, though, the RAZR M and Incredible 4G are basically your choices, one of which we actually really liked.
