Samsung Galaxy S3 XXEMA2 Jelly Bean Firmware Upgrade

Still did not get OTA notification about this latest XXEMA2 Jelly Bean Firmware? Go to Settings – About device – Software update – Update ~ Check for updates. Or upgrade with slower method ~ Samsung Kies. Me? Can’t wait for official Android 4.2 firmware which can enable 4x MSAA in OpenGL ES 2.0 games. That need to wait after Samsung Galaxy S4 launch, I believe…


  1. I’m using UK stock firmware,that is I9300XXELLA. So far,I heard it fixed sudden death issue and I’m very satisfied with it except battery life…

    My question is,XXEMA2 that released to Asia countries recently would be better than XXELLA which released a month ago ?

    If would be best if you could provide me both changelog so I can make a best decision.

  2. Hi Jayce, my Model is gt I9300T. Will this firmware suite with device? Please?

  6. Hai jayce, im using s3 build number XXEMA2. Can you guide me on how to add all application on my MultiWindow . I dont want to do rooting as it would effect my warranty. Looking for your reply as soon as possible. Tq

  7. Hi Jayce, i’m try to update my s3 android 4.1,1 manualy,when check for update,it show the message “your device has been updates are not available”,my android still is 4.1.1, nothing change, what’s the meaning of that message?

  8. Actualy i just bought s3 a month ago,when i get the phone,the update notification was shown up,i didn’t do anything because i been told by the phone shop sales person just leave it that way,don’t update it ,your device will hang if do so,after that my colleague said she always update her phone (which also s3) when notification shown up,her device didn’t facing any problem,so i decide to update my device few days ago,after click the update notification, my device shown the message “Your device has been modified,software updates are not available”, why this happen? i didn’t do anything with my phone, try to update through kies too but fail it keep shown the message “you PC didn’t have sufficient space, need 4250 MB space ” but my PC still have enough place about 200GB, why this happen ?

    • Hi william, hard to say what is causing this (since I don’t know what had you installed). The best person to know is the shop sales person and Samsung Support.

  9. I didn’t install anything when i bought s3, after that only install some apps,been ask the sales person & Samsung customer service,thet gave the same answer,sent your phone to service centre, i’m angry because i bought a totaly new phone,but i get the older Android 4.1.1 version,both sales person & Samsung customer can’t do anything, it is not fair !
