Last month, the Android Jelly Bean 4.1.1 update for the Samsung Galaxy S III started rolling out in Poland first. Again, the update was arrived in Sweden and South Korea. Now there is word that the update is rolling out across Western Europe.
The update is now arriving across Western Europe – such as France, Spain, Romania and Austria – which are bigger markets for Samsung. As earlier the update is being pushed out through KIES software , Samsung’s own official update program.

As for the firmware build, it’s the same one that rolled out in Eastern Europe earlier in the year: I9300XXDLIH. The update weighs 318.58MB, including the system version bump to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, new Home Screen mode plus some other features. The Jelly Bean update to the Galaxy S III will bring with it all that Jelly Bean has brought to Android such as Project Butter, Google Now and expanded notifications.
Samsung, as expected, added a little more to TouchWiz as well, there’re some additions to home screen management as well as a “Dormant” mode which is like an advanced silent mode. This Dormant mode will allow you to turn on call-blocking and stop certain notifications from coming through.
While JB update is new being pushed in various regions, US customers have to wait for the update till next year as reports suggest that the update will be available only in 2013.
