Samsung is expected to release the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy S III smartphone in the near future, but in the meantime, owners of the T-Mobile edition of the phone can try their hand with leaked version of the update. Posted to a forum on XDA-Developers today, the early version of the update bumps the phone up to Android 4.1.1 and includes all of the expected goodies that come with Jelly Bean.
Unsurprisingly, the Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy S III looks very similar to the current Android 4.0 build, as it includes Samsung's usual TouchWiz treatment on top of Android. The update can be applied through the phone's recovery menu, but owners need to be running the stock T-Mobile Ice Cream Sandwich ROM beforehand. Fair warning though, the update will likely break any root access that you might have, and users are reporting that features like Google Now and Wi-Fi calling are not yet functional in this early version. If that doesn't sway you, head to the source link to grab the file and get in on the Jelly Bean fun.
