    Default Cant update my phone to jelly bean.

    Hi

    Whenever i try to update my phone.. It never works!

    "Previous update package downloaded. Install update now? (During installation the device cannot be used, not even for emergency calls)

    Then it gives me a choice between later or install.

    when i tried the update.. the update fails at 32% and after the reboot, I get a message saying.."Failed to update firmware. Try again using PC software ( kies ) or visit a samsung service centre.

    My device details are..

    Android version 4.0.4

    Other details can be provided if asked

    Thank you

    Are you on a stock S3? Not rooted?

    Try using Samsung Kies on your PC.

    I'm not 100% sure what you mean, by stock s3. I got my phone from a generic phone shop and the guy told me not to update it otherwise it will damage the phone or something like that

    By stock S3, he means it's not rooted. If you can't update your phone without problems, you either A-have a damaged S3, or B-You have a counterfeit, replica S3.

    Stephen, are you sure your phone is a Galaxy S3 i9300? If so, I'd recommend updating using Odin, you can YouTube it, it's pretty easy. You can get the firmware for you SIII from Sammobile.com

    If the person selling the phone is legit, why would they say this?
