Samsung Galaxy SIII 4.1.2: users on Optus, Telstra still waiting Featured

Although Samsung has started rolling out a Jelly Bean 4.1.2 update to owners of international, unlocked GSIII models, those who have a carrier-based model, such as the Telstra version I currently have, are still waiting - unless you're on Vodafone. 

Reports that Samsung has started offering OTA (over the air) updates for its Samsung Galaxy SIII model to Android OS 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, complete with features such as being able to run two apps on the screen at the same time (as with the Galaxy Note II) are great news.

Except it isn’t great news if you’re sporting an Optus or Telstra carrier-sourced model of the SGIII, because chances are, you’re still waiting, although long-suffering Vodafone users did receive the update late last month.

Why? Because carriers not only generally want to add their own “bloatware” into any builds, complete with custom apps to take advantage of telco-delivered services, but also because they want to test the update with their networks to make sure all is working smoothly.

Naturally, if an update were to come out that wasn’t tested, and caused problems, that in itself would cause even greater problems, the need for more updates and much embarrassment all round.

So, telcos and their testing is what is standing in the way of most SGIII owners from getting an update thus far.

Ausdroid notes thata new revision of the Jelly Bean update has been submitted by Samsung due to an issue being found by the QA team. This version is currently in testing by Telstra. In other words, it too has been delayed yet again.
