    Pretty sweet! I like it! Only took 40 min and my display pretty much the same with the smoothness of jelly bean. Now I can stop seeing all you crying women moaning about when jelly bean will be released!

    Two Kies uninstalls and reinstalls later plus 36 minutes and I finally have Jelly Bean!! yay!

    Ok now my next question; I have Google Now on and it says all you have to do is speak "google" to wake it up but that doesn't work from the home screen and the home button still brings up S Voice.

    Thanks. It says it will only be available through Kies, NOT OTA.
    What is with AT&T and there lack of major OTA updates for Samsung phones?

    It won't let me connect to Kies. Also, my mac book won't allow to Kies to update.

    My mac won't let me update Kies either Every time I've had an update (past experience with my Captivate), it never goes smoothly. I always resort to using a PC. Gonna meet up my friend tomorrow. The wait is killing me!!!

    The Samsung kies software is pretty crap from my experience with the gs3. Congrats on getting Jelly Bean though! Its about time they released it.

    Thanks, I got with Samsung and he got the emergency recovery started, but it's been running for a while now and won't go past 5%. If this doesn't work he said I would have to call Samsung

    Does Flash still work after JB update?
    You can download the flash apk from the internet and install it on your phone and you will have flash!

    Hopefully this will do it. I remember when I updated my Captivate, there was some screen that it stayed on for a while for many of us, but it was still doing something, just didn't look like it was.

    I got it going after Kies-uninstall-reinstall-freeze drama. I like it but dread the months wait for 4.1.2v and 4.2. Next December maybe.

    I don't like that too much either, that was one of the changes I really liked with GB, the black notification bar.-

    I don't think there is going to be an OTA release. I would seriously uninstall and then reinstall Kies first.

    From the Samsung page:

    This update is available through Windows and Mac computers using the Samsung Kies software application only. This update will not be made available over-the-air.

    I have updated Kies and even reinstalled it. Kies recognized my phone just fine but does not say anything about upgrading to Jelly Bean.

    Same thing happened to me. The old Kies software keeps getting uninstalled while the updated Kies keeps being installed. What am I left with? No Kies.

    Still stuck on this, with my phone having the android on it saying "downloading....do not turn off target!!". Not sure what I'm supposed to do, if anything. It's been on 0% for almost half an hour.
    Reboot phone and try again. Make sure battery is near 90% and use USB 2.0 port with nothing else plugged in.

    You need to update Kies software on the Mac. I upgraded my phone via Kies running Mountain Lion effortlessly. Not sure why so many are having so many problems.

    My intermittently working 1.3 MBps AT&T home wifi failed the update 3 times so I first tethered the SG3 to my PC laptop wirelessly (4G!) and then connected with USB. Kies popped up and l updated successfully and quickly. So if you don't mind losing about 4/5 of a gig of your contract data you might want to try my method. I am now 4.1.1

    You might alternately try the update at a library or somewhere with fast WIFI.
