Samsung KIES is not the only way to get official Samsung Galaxy S III GT-I9300 firmware. You can use Check Fus Downloader to check for latest official Samsung Galaxy S3 firmware upgrade. And even download it and install with Odin manually later. Or you can find them at XDA Forum and SamMobile website too. With Samsung Galaxy S3 unlocked bootloader, you can try other region firmware too. For example, my Samsung Galaxy S3 is Malaysia unit and loaded with South East Asia firmware. I can install UK I9300 firmware on my Malaysia SGS3 since international SGS3 hardware is the same. So no need to wait on your region firmware for long time and try other region latest firmware first. Europe region always get the latest firmware first. And Malaysia will get it several months later…
Can’t wait for official Samsung Galaxy S II firmware release from Samsung KIES? Or keep getting no update from your phone Software update? If you are a risk taker and wish to stay ahead of other people, you can always download latest official Samsung Galaxy S2 firmware and install on your SGS2. Most of the leaked official firmwares are for other region and not available on your region. But that does not stop those risk takers to try them out. How about you? Willing to take the risk and install the latest and greatest firmware on your Samsung Galaxy S2?
Yeah… I am thinking of selling my precious Canon EOS 400D lately. And started involve actively in photography forum to find out the best selling price for it. Then found this Canon EOS 400D Firmware Hack that interested me. Huh? What are the benefits for hacking the old 400D?
