There’s no doubt about it, the Galaxy S3 Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update is coming soon. Yesterday we heard that Samsung may release the update on August 29, which also happens to be the Galaxy Note 2 announcement day, and we also saw a video of a Galaxy S3 handset running a leaked Jelly Bean test firmware.
Now Sam Mobile reports that the I9300XXDLG4 firmware is available to anyone interested in testing Jelly Bean on their Galaxy S3 handset, and provides installation instructions.
Version I9300XXDLG4 is based on Jelly Bean and has a July 31 2012 build date, but since this is a pre-release ROM it’s not exactly advisable to install it on your device. While the publication does not provide download links, it does say that “you can find the firmware by OPEN Europe in the download section.” However, xda-developers has already posted up download links for the build on their forums (see Source links at the end of this post.)
More importantly, flashing instructions have also been provided, but we’ll double down on Sam Mobile’s warning and remind you that it’s better to wait for the official Jelly Bean roll out than to experiment with a leaked version. With that in mind, here’s what you need to know about installing build I9300XXDLG4 on your Galaxy S3:
And here are “a few visible changes” that you can expect from your Galaxy S3 running Jelly Bean:

Is there any other method to make a screenshot?
Vol Up + Home + Power
Or simply Home + Power
Isn’t palm swipe to screen shot a feature Samsung added to the S3 with ICS from launch.
Yes, the one who wrote this doesn’t probably have sgs3
Yeah, this is almost like confirm that the official final JB is coming to sgs3 on 29th!!
How do i download everything and. Put this app on m phone please help?
Sadly it will only be available for the international version (those who didn’t buy their S3 from a local carrier). When ICS was launched for the S2 I still had to wait for about 6 months for my local carrier to release it. And since my current S3 is also tied to a local carrier, I will surely have to wait a while for its release
I’ve noticed a memory leak, WiFi sometimes crashes the phone, browser sometimes FCs, a menu in the gallery app is wrongly formatted. Take care using this firmware :)
