  • Dear Jaycee ,

    Can I update this through Samsung kies ΒΏ what will happened to my siyah kernel after this update ? n will this update clean my current apps installation ? . thank you

    Regards ,


    • No, unless your existing firmware is based on Poland too. It will remove SiyahKernel. Nope, official firmware is non wipe (unless you face issue and need to factory reset).

      • Dear Jaycee ,

        Thank for the info

        Regards ,

    • sergio

      Please dont update the 4.1 version for S-III device it will voids the warranty, i request you please wait untill u recieve notification form the carrier all updates are developed by samsung & carries so dont trust thrid party updates. And dont suffer later

  • pipin

    When will malaysia the malaysia update arrive … surely before my iphone 5 preorder?

  • Surren

    Only For rooted sgs3 ?

    • No root access is needed to install official firmware.

  • Rick

    Hi Jayce,

    it’s me again. Last time was followed ur guideline and I did rooted my s3.

    I nvr flash any custom firmware just because waiting for THIS! and thanks God, finally it released.

    My question is, as I told you, I rooted the device. So should I un-root it and then only follow the guideline given above to flash this stock JB?

    Thanks in advance.

    Rick (25-9-2012 12:52am)

    • No need to un-root. Install official firmware will auto un-root for you. Then you need to re-root it again.

  • Melvin

    Hi Jayce,

    Would you mind checking the link again coz I’m getting this error when I try to DL the firmware, “This file does not exist, the access to the following file is limited or it has been removed due to infringement of copyright.”

    Also is it ok to install this via Odin even though I have this build IMM76D.I9300UBBLG2 (which I’m confuse where this unit come from..:P I thought my device is from UK)


    • Hi Melvin, there are several download sites. Try other if one failed.

      It should be okay as long as yours SGS3 is I9300 model.

      • Melvin

        Jayce changing CSC is not required when I install JB right? I don’t want to wipe my current setup.

  • George F.

    Hey Jayce love your posts. Thanks to you i rooted my galaxy s3 running ics πŸ˜‰ but now i wanted to know if tjere is a way to root my gs3 running jellybean??

    • The rooting process is the same as Ice Cream Sandwich.

      • George F.

        Thanks man, so i just follow your tutorial for ics?

        • Yes George.

          • George F.

            Thanks a lot πŸ˜‰

  • seng

    will my warranty void if i install this firmware?

    • It might if XXDLIB Firmware is not for your region. But you can always restore back to your own stock firmware anytime you want. So warranty is safe with that.

  • Ting Hou

    Is there any chinese input keyboard available?

    • I don’t think so.

  • Gav

    Hi i’ve just rooted my 4.04 ics, now i’ve got the official jellybean update prompt.
    After i download it and accept the terms my device boots into CWM-based recovery menu.

    How do i get it to update to 4.1.1? Should i just follow this guide and use the rom in the link you’ve provided? Thanks

    • Hi Gav, you can use Samsung Kies to upgrade.

  • Geords

    Hello, if i install the poland version on my Galaxy S3 will i lose reception etc. i have a different build number and baseband because i am from Australia. Can i still install this firmware without losing reception.


    • It should be working but I can’t confirm since I am not in Australia.

  • conan21

    hi jayce, do you know if there’s a new JB custom rom for S2?

  • Surren

    Hello. Installing this Pollad JB firmware changes my CSC? If it does, will i have any problem with cellular network? problem in making calls or using data? Im from malaysia.

    • Yes, it does. Should not have problem to make call as I am using Europe firmware and CSC too.

      • Surren

        Installing this firmware wipes out my data? My contacts, files etc.

        • By right, no. But no harm to make backup first.

  • Chuan201

    Dear Jaycee,

    so far i only root my s3 and install siyah kernel but i tried all the ways from net and few labtops and cables , my skies still stuck at connecting stage and i even uninstall my skies already but the problem still persist , is that the only way is i install official update through Odin flashing when sammobile release the Jellybean for XME ? Thank for advice


    • SiyahKernel won’t work with Samsung Kies. Yes, install with Odin.

      • ok , thanks

        • Chuan201

          Dear Jayce,

          Dev Rom like Check Rom HD xx seems interesting but i wonder after flashing that , can the stock rom certain apps being kept (do wipe needed?) and if nope , can chinese character keyboard be installed to the Check Rom and will flashing the CHeck rom affect the avaibility of S3 to enjoy promotional free apps from samsung ? Will different like Modem: XXDLIB which may different our Malaysian Region affect the function of the phone ? Thank you


          • CheckROM is custom ROM based on Samsung Firmware. So most of the Samsung apps and features are there (you can install with KitchenPro manually).

            Check with ROM chef on need to wipe or not.

            Yes, CheckROM support Samsung Apps.

            Modem only affect signal. No effect to other functions.

  • Dev

    Dear Jayce,
    Firstly please dont mind my ignorance as this is my first android phone so i dont know anything about it ! πŸ™ I live in new zealand and i bought this phone online just 3 days ago. The instruction manual was in another (european) language, the “baseband” : I9300XXLH1 and the “build number” is : IMM76D.I9300XXBLH1 . Please tell me if this means my warranty will be void if i do the upgrade like above or if it is ok. I tried to search but i cant find where my phone is from. Also if i do the process anyway can i change the new firmware to my old firmware for warranty problems with kies suit on my computer? thank you in advance for answering my many questions!!!

    • Hi Dev, please take your time to explore Android platform first. Don’t install other firmware so soon.

      • Dev

        T_T ok…

  • Dev

    thanks for the honest answer though… please keep updating information on the galaxy s3, i will follow you on facebook!!! i like honest opinions!

  • Scott

    Hi Jayce,excellent stuff here.

    I’m from UK using a GT-I9300 which is on an o2 contract.

    Would you recommend using the Polish JB update?

    • Wait for official update… πŸ˜‰

      • Scott

        Ok will do. Thanks.

  • zaki

    • Restore back to your previous firmware.

  • Bob

    Hi there, I just updated to the 4.1.1 Jellybean software of Poland. I am wondering how do I flash back to my previous 4.0.4 ICS? Do I just download the firmware and reflash it using odin or do a factory reset?

    • Hi Bob, you need to factory reset in recovery. Then install firmware.

      • Bob

        Thank you for your reply. Will doing a factory reset in recovery wipe out all my data? If so, would Samsung Kies be the best method to back up my data?

        • Yes. No, I prefer to use Titanium Backup.

  • Ryan

    Hi will installing this get rid of the annoying carrier welcome screen I get when I power on my phone?

  • Bob

    Hello there Jayce, I have one more question for you.

    I would like to ask in the event the jelly bean software for my own region were to be released and at the point I have already applied the jelly bean update for a different region, can I just flash it directly to my phone via ODIN since it’s the same Android Version? I’m on the polish version and the localised singapore version would arrive soon.

    • Yes but might need to factory reset in recovery if something went wrong.

  • If I download an official firmware (JB. 4.1.1) from sammobile website will I be able to install the firmware following this ( tutorial ?

  • Carsley

    Can i type Chinese word after installed this official jelly bean to my S3…I’m from Malaysia…

    • Not sure about that but you can always install google PinYin.

      • Carsley

        yeah…i still can type chinese

  • Carsley

    hello…after i installed this jelly bean, when Malaysia get the official update for the jelly bean will i be informed?and can i update to malaysia version jelly bean via OTA

    • No, you need to install Malaysia version with Odin manually.

      • Carsley

        So when the Malaysia version released will you upload to your website?

        • Sure will make a blog post about it. πŸ˜‰

  • Carsley

    How to restore back to the previous firmware?

  • harry

    Thanks for the great guide. Now i was wondering, since ive rooted my s3 and updated it into jellybean, what can i do if i want the phone back to normal and receive ”proper” updates. Thanks in advance.

    • Hi harry, factory reset in recovery mode. Then install stock firmware with Odin.

  • harry

    One more question, can i receive normal updates with just ROOT, and what is the best way to check new updates for the JB now that i have it installed ? thanks for the quick replies.

    • Yes, check upgrade with Samsung Kies.

  • Taaha

    Hey my phone comes up on kies as sgh-i747m and says there is no update if thats the name does that mean that its not an i9300 and i cant get the update?

    • Yes, it is not I9300. Need to wait for official update from Samsung.

  • Hafyz

    tested and my S3 working like a charm with Jelly Bean. Since Samsung already roll out Jelly Bean in Polland for Galaxy Note, do you think that same process will work with Note?

    • The installation process is the same.

      • Hafyz

        the only latest firmware i found via is from russia. Is it compatible with our country?

        • No idea, I didn’t try Russia firmware before.

  • axelynx22

    Hi jaycee.. I’ve rooted my sgs3 a while ago. Then last night i update my firmware to 4.1.1 jb via KIES. Ia this will automatically unroot my phone? Before i update my firmware i use OTA rootkeepeer to unroot my device temporarily. After i root, i still find my rootes apps installed on my phone, but it cant work just like my phone isn.’t rooted. Is this mean my device has been unrootwd automatically? Thanks btw!

    • axelynx22

      I mean after i update my firmware i can still find rooted apps on my sgs3*

      • OTA RootKeeper won’t work on Samsung devices. You need to re-root it.

        • axelynx22

          I see. My question is, does my sgs3 no no longer rooted anymore? Tbh i was planning to unroot my sgs3. But if it already unrooted, then it’ll be nice

  • kamran

    Dear Joyce

    • Iran – based on THR. Please consult Samsung Support for Jelly Bean firmware release date.

  • Jkeizher

    Hi Jayce,

    My S3 base band is I9300XXLFB, upon connecting to KIES, my latest firmware says PDA:LFB / PHONE:LFB / CSC:LF3 (AFR), by the way I live in the Philippines. Is the latest firmware of my phone and my region compatible? Am I able to update my S3 either from KIES or OTA?

    Thanks in advance.

    • Sorry Jkeizher, I don’t live in Philippines. No idea about region compatible. You can use both Samsung Kies and OTA to upgrade.

  • Kang

    I am not sure that my following question makes any sense.
    Is there any way to change firmware of phone to get regional compatibility?
    I mean I have SGS3 GT-I9300 with THR(IRAN) latest firmware updated on it and I live in INDIA, so is there any way by which I can change my firmware XXLH1 to some Indian firmware release e.g.DDLI7.
    Please reply, I just want to do this to be able to get regional updates by Samsung Kies.


    • Yes Atom, you can install India firmware with Odin.

    Hi Jayce,

    Thanks for the nice posts. I have a similar problem like semir. I upgraded my S3 to Jelly Bean (Build Number: I9300XXDLK1) last week and since then my stock camera is not working. It exits out to home screen saying “Unfortunately, camera stopped”. I did a factory reset and still I am facing the problem. Do you have any alternative method to solve this problem. Please let me know. Thanks in advance.
    Note: I am from India.

    • Hi Mobigeek, please consult Samsung Support since factory reset did not solve it.

    Hi, will this work with an unlocked optus carrier branded s3? My baseband version is I9300XXLE8. If it will work will I still receive OTA official updates?

    • Sorry Ryan, I have no idea because I don’t have this carrier brand model.

      • Ryan

        If it did work though would I still receive official OTA updates? I And would they be based on Poland updates cos that’s the baseband version?

        • Yes, official firmware can get OTA update.

  • pavitar
