Android 4.1.2 update for Galaxy S3 now out

We’ve been seeing the update alert for Android 4.1.2 on our Galaxy S3 for several days now but the update is still queued by request. This morning, we finally got our turn to finally download the update.

Android 4.1.2 fixes some bugs and minor enhancements into Galaxy S3. The update is about 153MB in size.

To update your device, just connect to a local WiFi and go to Settings -> About and hit Update.

  1. I update my S3, and I turnoff vibrate and haptic, but still it’s vibrate…. I think there is a bug on the update …

    the update went well we are still exploring the new features.

  4. I got mine updated last week pa. The update brings a lot of improvements and it’s got few new features like multi-window and you can already change the things to put in the notifications. So far so good for me.

  8. Tried to update my s3 via Wi-Fi, says “No update available”. Bakit?!?

    • Where did you get your S3?

      Samsung is sending the updates by region. Its possible that your region is not yet supported by the update to 4.1.2.

  9. Have your notice the new toolbar? how it can be customized to place new app icon?

    The toolbar appears when you started s3.

  10. is there any complete/patch note for the latest update?

  11. Is it me or the SMS messaging app became slow after the update. I mean hindi na cya smooth i scroll lol just an observation I can live with it naman XD

    • Hi Yeye,

      try to turn off the “delete old messages” option.

      Go to messaging > message setting > delete old messages.

      And/or try to delete some for your messages as well.

      Hope that works for you too.

    heyy. question lang. i’ve had the latest firmware for my s3 by january pa but i haven’t installed it yet since i’m afraid that all my installed apps will be deleted. If i click install all, will the latest update erase all my data and reboot again or my apps would still be installed? PLEASE. i need answers. Thanks! :)
