        Leaked Samsung Galaxy S III ROM Screenshots Show Smart Scroll And Smart Pause Features Rumored For The Galaxy S IV

        We heard rumors at the start of this week that Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S IV will feature eye tracking technology to scroll through pages as you read content, and now it looks as though those features could be heading to the Galaxy S III as well.

        Screenshots published by SamMobile this morning, from a leaked version of Android 4.2.1 intended for the Galaxy S III, show the smart screen features in more detail, with some previously unseen additions.

        AOKP Custom ROM Expands To Galaxy S III International, Galaxy Note II (Verizon And Samsung), And The LG Optimus LTE

        In a surprisingly quick update, the Android Open Kang project has reached its fifth Android 4.2 release, complete with some worthy additions to the list of supported devices. The much-demanded Samsung Galaxy S III international version leads the pack, with the Verizon and Sprint variants of the Galaxy Note II also making for some pleased users. (S-Pen support has been added for these models specifically.) The LG Optimus LTE, plus its American variants the Nitro (AT&T) and Spectrum (Verizon) round out the pack.

        Verizon Preparing To Release 4.1.2 (VRBMB1) Update For Galaxy S III With Minor Improvements

        It's not Jelly Bean yet. Well, I mean it is. It's the older Jelly Bean. Not the newer Jelly Bean. I'm sure this isn't confusing. However, Verizon is getting ready to roll out an update to the Galaxy S III that will bump the phone from 4.1.1 to 4.1.2. Unfortunately this isn't the 4.2 upgrade most users were likely hoping for. Among the listed improvements are a better keyboard and the ability to take pictures while on a call.

        Sprint's Galaxy S III Getting A Small OTA Update To Build L710VPMB1

        Earlier this month, The Now Network pushed an update to its version of the Samsung Galaxy S III with a few small fixes in it. That update was build L710VPMA6. Today, the company is sending another update to the Galaxy S III that is essentially the same update, plus one addition: 3rd party software licensing. This one's build L710VPMB1, will hit your device regardless of whether or nor you installed the previous update.

        First Leak Of Touchwiz-ified 4.2.1 Shows Up For The Samsung Galaxy S III (i9300)

        Given Samsung's recent track record with updates, there's been little question whether or not the Galaxy S III would receive Jelly Bean 4.2.x, but a leak that showed up today over at SamMobile removes all doubt of the build's existence. The leak shows off Samsung's take on some of the 4.2 modifications, including a fully TouchWiz-ified Quick Settings menu (which actually looks more useful than stock Android's).

        Aside from that, it appears that Sammy has added several voice actions, which should allow you to control various parts of the OS through speech.

        [New App] Market Helper Lets You Download Incompatible Apps Without Changing The Build.prop (Root Only)

        One of the more annoying things about the Android app ecosystem is that there are loads of apps and games that are needlessly restricted to one device or another. If you care to get down and dirty, you can edit the build.prop file on rooted devices to make your device appear to be something other than what it is. Market Helper gets you the same results, but it doesn't touch the build-prop and it's easy to revert to your original profile.
