CyanogenMod 10 builds popping up for Samsung Galaxy S III, reducing the Jelly Bean anxiety
Early CM10 builds for the Samsung Galaxy S III are being demonstrated by the CyanogenMod crew already. The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean work is in a more advanced stage for the international quad-core version of the handset, with only the camera functions sometimes iffy, and Wi-Fi tethering not working properly for now.

There are builds for the US versions as well, with more kinks that need to be ironed out, and the usual disclaimers that you shouldn't whine if something is not working outside of the issues listed when you install it, as it is not suitable for a daily driver. Getting the build on your Exynos version is pretty strightforward, as usual, just flash the CM10 zip and then the Gapps file provided, reboot and you'd be good to go.

I was very excited for ICS, but I'm not excited for Jelly bean, the reason for this is that with Jelly bean, adobe has pulled the plug on Flash support, and most of the websites are still running on flash.......... So till all sites changes their games and videos to HTML5 format, I will dread this Jelly bean update........... :( Hope that guys at XDA do something about flash support in jelly bean, because with the removal of flash from android, it's biggest advantage over ios and WP7 will be null and void.............. :(

Umm, I have Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean already on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus for a while & you are wrong. The STOCK browser that comes with Jelly Bean INDEED supports Flash. I have no problems with Flash what so ever. Google Chrome for mobile doesn't have Flash, but the STOCK Jelly Bean Browser does have Flash. Sorry but your information is wrong.

I am running Jelly Belly 3.6 ROM with Lean Minimalistic Jelly Bean Kernel 4.1.0 undervolted @ 1.65GHz. The OP on RootzWiki.com tells you everything you need to install the ROM. It's insanely FAST, SMOOTH, & Wi-Fi Tether works perfectly. Also GPS locks very quickly. The Google voice search kills anything out on the market, & Google Now is just plain genius. Definitely download that ROM it's very, very stable.
