Amongst the top 4 carrier in the U.S., the Samsung Galaxy S3 variant on Verizon was the last to get upgraded to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.  Despite the delay, we’re sure the update was worth the wait. As is customary, Samsung has made the Jelly Bean kernel source for the device available.

Those who like to tinker with their Galaxy S3 can head straight to Samsung’s open source website, where the source code for the latest available ROM for the flagship phone can be found. At 187 MB, it’s not that big of a file to download.

Regular users won’t have much use for the released source code, but it should give the developer communities something to play with. For one, it should provide them with more ammunition to develop better custom ROMs for the Samsung Galaxy S3.

If you’re looking for some extra-curricular activities to do at the end of the year, hit the link below to get the Jelly Bean source code.
