Verizon's version of the Samsung Galaxy S III gets Jelly Bean leak
Recently, a leaked version of the Android 4.1.1 update was made available to owners of the T-Mobile version of the Samsung Galaxy S III. Not to be left out, Verizon customers with the sizzling hot flagship phone now have a leaked Android 4.1.1 update to call their very own. This version, which comes from the Mensa material over at XDA, has the latest TouchWiz UI running over Android 4.1.1, but does have a few bugs.

The biggest bug is the failure of GPS to show directions. It is unclear if the problem refers to turn-by-turn navigation or some other form of directions. Either way, it is something you need to be aware of. There is a minor bug involving setting the wallpaper on the device using the long press method. This seems to bring on some f/c shut downs. You can eliminate the problem by setting the wallpaper directly from the gallery.

The ROM has the oddly appropriate name of "Touch My Beans" and you can install the update by heading to the sourcelink. Don't forget that doing this will probably void the warranty on the device, so be sure that you want to take the risk.
