    When it is ready it will be pushed OTA to you, no PC needed.

    If you don't want to wait for the OTA you can update via Kies. Unfortunately you have to use a computer to do so. If you don't have Kies download the latest version of Kies, Kies3 and the program will alert you to the update. I did mine two day's ago and no problems noticed yet, it's pretty stable so far. all in all, it took about an hour to fully install on my GS3. Good luck.

    True story! Worked just fine, no difference than the ota.... Just make sure your battery is fully charged

    And understand that you will probably never, ever, be able to install a custom ROM in the future. If you're even considering the idea of rooting your phone, stay away from 4.3 for now.

    Why does the battery need to be fully charged? Mine wasn't when I updated with Kies.

    How does updating with Kies work? I have never messed with Kies before.

    Perfect. Did it to mine yesterday, and it's smooth sailing with 4.3!

    Just a precaution. Having your phone shut down in the middle of updating the ROM is pretty much guaranteed to brick it.

    Well, I feel a little silly here. Installed Kies on my Macbook and it told me that my (unrooted) S3 is up to date and running the latest (MD4) firmware. Am I missing something?
    Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere; I did a forum search and didn't find an answer.
