New Samsung Galaxy S3 XXBLH1 Firmware Upgrade for Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand & Vietnam

There is a new firmware update for Samsung Galaxy S III in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam region. Samsung is pushing OTA update on Samsung Galaxy S3 more frequent lately. Better than HTC which was well known for fast OTA update. I am still waiting for the latest update for my HTC One X which removes the annoying 3 dots menu soft button. Months of waiting and still nothing… Anyway, what are the new features or changes in Samsung Galaxy S3 XXBLH1 Firmware? Let’s me know after you upgraded yours.

Samsung Galaxy S3 XXBLH1 Firmware Upgrade

Did not get OTA notification about this new XXBLH1 Firmware upgrade yet? No worry if you don’t get it. Just go to Settings – About device – Software update – Update ~ Check for updates. If still no update available, try to get it with Samsung Kies. Enjoy latest Samsung Galaxy S3 firmware.


  1. Great! Will tried Kies tonight. Somehow OTA always say no update since I got the phone. Called Samsung service, and never came back with answer. Sucks!

  2. Dear Jaycee,

    i tried to update it last nite and the server was not in good condition but this morning i managed to update it but i am not sure what the difference from the previous update

  3. Thanks for the info jayce, but anyway will my warranty void if i download the firmware manually tru sammobile website and update my device tru odin? this is because i’m having trouble updating it tru kies as the server conitnually timed out. Please advise.


  4. Hi Jayce,

    any idea on the change log??? any way i have done the update via KIEs, so far i haven’t notice any changes yet.

  5. Hi Jayce,

    I’m using Galaxy S3 -> XXBLH1 Official Firmware (Singapore). I have minor wifi connection problem. For eg. It doesn’t load comments in youtube video and I have to click ‘retry’ couple of times before it connects again and loads content. It also happens in google play.

    Any idea why is this happening and suggestions to get round this?

    Also, I do not see ‘select frequency band’ option in Setting -> Wifi -> Advanced (whereas I see that option in several youtube videos). Is it only me or all XXBLH1 users face same thing?


    • Wi-Fi issue might cause by the Wi-Fi router that you connected to. If you face the same issue on other Wi-Fi router, then it might be your SGS3 issue.

      I don’t have ‘select frequency band’ option too.
