Possible final build of Android 4.1.1 leaks for Verizon's Samsung Galaxy S III

Possible final build of Android 4.1.1 leaks for Verizon's Samsung Galaxy S III
Last month, Sprint customers became the first to have Android 4.1.1 rollout on the Samsung Galaxy S III. While that might have made owners of the phone on the other major carriers excited with the anticipation that the update was coming to their handset, the truth is that as of now, only Sprint has updated the phone. If leaks mean anything though, Verizon customers could be next. A leaked version of the update for Big Red has made it to the Xda developers forum where the speculation is that this leak represents the final build.

We would like to warn those who haven't a clue on how to install the ROM to just be patient and wait for Big Red to send you the OTA update. If you are a novice at this sort of thing, odds are that you will convert your Samsung Galaxy S III into a brick, not to mention void your warranty. Back in September, an earlier version of the update leaked with some GPS bugs which we would imagine are now all cleared up.

If you do install the update, let us know what you think. Many Verizon owners of the device are just dying to find out how smooth Project Butter makes their handset.

With XDA I will have 4.2 around the same time as a nexus but still have a 5.5" screen, better hardware and an S-pen. Maybe if there was a Nexus next big thing.

Unfortunately, I don't expect to see a Nexus device that can actually compete with the Note 2. Nexus devices don't have sd card slots and removable batteries (the fuck is this Apple shit, Google?), which means that I simply couldn't stand to buy one. Very unfortunate, considering that specs- and OS-wise, Nexus devices are ideal.

With xda developers, I will have also 4.2 pretty soon but your nexus get´s it sooner, can´t argue with that

I'm from Malaysia and received the 4.1.1 update since last Thursday. Obviously smoother and better.

I installed the J1 version Thursday night, and it was pretty easy to do. If you follow the directions, it doesn't take long and you will not lose any of your apps or data. I would just recommend doing a backup of your current system in ClockWorkMod first, so that way you can easily revert back if needed. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1974114

My money says the official rollout for jb on the verizon s3 is january. Verizon still needs to bog it down with bloatware and that takes time. XD

i'll have my Note II before JB rolls out for my S3, so not really worried about it.
