The Samsung Galaxy S3 Android 4.1, JellyBean update is now available for the unlocked version of the handset in the U.K.
This official upgrade can be accessed using Samsung KIES software and is available for the unbranded SIM-free model.
It features a unique build number of I9300XXDLJ4 and seems like a much better version of the software, according to YouMobile.org.
This is also the 5th build of JellyBean to be released for the Galaxy S3 in Europe.
The update was recently released for three of the major carriers in the U.K: Three, O2, and Vodafone OTA (over-the-air). There have not been any reported problems with the update.
It started rolling out in the U.K. last week and the timing was first confirmed in an O2 user forum.
"Good news! The wait time is almost over for Samsung Galaxy S3 users. From tomorrow, 19th Oct. '12, you'll be able to upgrade to the much awaited 4.1 Jelly Bean update over Wi-Fi or via Kies," wrote O2's social media team.
"If you have activated the 'auto-update' feature from out of box, you will be prompted to download the 4.1 Jelly Bean update," continued O2.
Samsung also confirmed the October U.K. roll out for the software on its Facebook page earlier this month.
A Facebook user named Lewis messaged Samsung, telling the company to "hurry up and release the update for the U.K. International S3."
Samsung replied by stating that it will be available sometime before the end of this month.
"Hi Lewis, we can confirm that the Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) operating system will be available on the Galaxy S3 this month. Details regarding the availability across network channels will be announced in due course," wrote Ravi of Samsung.
