    Jelly Bean 4.2




      any idea when Jelly Bean 4.2 will become available ?


      I know we just got 4.1.1 and it's very nice (I had to reset to Factory Default to unbrick my S3

      since it was completely gone south with loops on

      android.process.media has stopped

      camera absolutely not working at all

      and more funny stuff)


      but other than that it's all good

          thanks but this I have done already: this is 4.1.1


          my question is: when will 4.2 being rolled out ?

            Two out of the four carriers have not even gotten 4.1 yet.  There should be a pool as soon as something is released about how long till the first person asked when the next release will be.  Enjoy what you just got.  There is always going to be a newer release, it will get here when it gets here

              Lets just say that 4.1.2 is slated for mid next year. I know you want 4.2, but it is what it is.

                  You got "lectured" because no one here can answer the question of when 4.2 will be released. In the meantime have you tried clearing the partition system memory? It helps in some ways better than factory reset. I've copying this from another post, give it a try and see if it fixes your issues:


                  Wipe cache partition to clear system memory

                  If the phone is not working correctly, you may need to reset it. Whereas a hard reset deletes all your information, clearing the system cache does not erase any personal data or settings.


                  To wipe the cache partition, follow these steps:

                  1. Turn off the device.
                  2. Press and hold these three buttons at the same time: Volume Up key, Home key, and Power key.
                  3. When the phone vibrates, let go of the Power key but continue to press and hold the Volume Up key and the Homekey.
                  4. When the Android System Recovery screen appears, let go of the Volume Up and Home keys.
                  5. Press the Volume Down key to highlight wipe cache partition.
                  6. Press the Power key to select and wipe the cache partition.
                  7. After the wipe is finished, with reboot phone now highlighted, press the Power key to restart the phone.



                  If that doesn't work it's possible that jellybean boinked your phone. (It did mine). If that's the case you may have to get the phone replaced.

                    You are getting "short" replies but we just got done reading posts from people whining about getting 4.1. Now that it's been here for a couple of days... this comes along. It never ends. The bottom line is the answer is _always_... you will get it when you get it.


                    In this case Samsung has not even said which devices will get 4.2. They have only stated certain Galaxy devices will get it. So they are not even close to being done with the coding. Once they are done, they will give it to TM. TM will then need to tweak the OS before it's released. So I'd say you probably have 6 months or so before it's released. That is just a _wild_ guess but probably close.

                      There is nothing wrong with your question phtimo. Unfortunately, we have to share this world with rude people and etc. Simply ignore the ones whom are being rude and negative is all you have to do. Don't even give them the satisfaction that what they say matters if they can't be respectful. -Harmonious

                        Can we ignore the ones that don't read others posts or search when the question has probably already been answered then?

                        • 10. Re: Jelly Bean 4.2

                          The honest answer will always be a few months after the source is released. The Nexus devices don't count because the OS is developed on them and no one sees the code until Google releases the code. If the S3 does get 4.2 it Will be Sometime after this year.
