    Default Can the S3 run stock jelly bean?

    I really love stock jelly bean because it offers more freedom than touchwiz in my opinion.. but I like the S3 more than the Galaxy Nexus plus the S3 costs less than if I were to buy a Nexus (I'm on AT&T). Is there a way to run stock jelly bean on the S3?

    P.S. I am coming from iPhone 4 so I don't really know much about android yet.

    Yes.. The International version already started receiving the JellyBean update. We're still waiting on the U.S. version to get it... hopefully soon... But yes, the GS3 will run stock JellyBean.

    I have a Galaxy Nexus as well and you will love 4.1.2. The update should be here soon.

    Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I747 using Android Central Forums

    The thing is it'll be running jelly bean with touchwiz. I want jelly bean without touchwiz like on the nexus

    You can switch Launchers if you do not like Touchwiz, you will still have Jelly Bean even if you switch launchers after the update

    Then you need to root the phone and install a custom ROM thats pure Google like CM10 or AOKP

    None of those ROMs have on-screen buttons unless you flash a mod for it. There's no reason for them since the S3 has capacitive/physical buttons.
