    so what exactly does Jelly Bean bring to the table? The biggest os upgrade I have seen was when android went to froyo from its previous os.

    I'm on Verizon. I will be happy if it shows up by the end of the year.
    Agreed. Knowing Verizon we'll get it last among all US carriers. I'm not getting my hopes up.

    if I'm not mistaken, like 90% of the web still uses flash.
    Maybe if you count banner ads that use flash, otherwise no way - not even close. I'd rather have flash than not have it, but let's face it - it's a legacy technology that is rapidly disappearing. A year from now and you won't miss it.

    IMO most importantly no more "Android-lag" which makes it a hugely important update.

    Same here. I don't want to revert back to the days of when I had my blackberry where I couldn't watch movies, convert videos from YouTube into mp3 files, or stream tv shows.

    The rumours that the international versions get jb first before the U.S. versions

    July is gone but hopefully the ota will start showing up in August for the international versions

    yeah, u can use Tubemate app to convert Youtube vids to mp3. its been taken off play store but if u search tubemate.apk on 4shared.com hopefuly as the guy with the gnex said, flash will still work fine on jb

    Makes sense. I'm sure Jelly Bean will be available OTA just before the next iPhone.

    If you're under Sprint, you better not get your hopes up. More like November or December.

    Okay. I'm always up for updates.I love improving my phone but I'm not sure what jelly bean is really going to do.

    So we get project butter. The smoothness of the galaxy s3 takes care of this problem in android already. Well. I don't have that problem at least.

    Notifications... not really sure how they will change but unless it's like web os notifications I doubt it's all that different. Hopefully some LED improvements.

    Google Now, I just admit seems amazing but I haven't seen it do anything other than find information, send texts, and set alarms. Does it open apps? Play music? Change settings? Will it replace svoice?

    I'm not downing the upgrade. I want it just like the rest of you. Just not sure how we will be affected. Seems overrated. Will it be worth the hype? Any of you rooters have it already?

    I downloaded the apk and firebox beta on my nexus 7 and it works perfectly. I'm sure this will work fine when we get jelly bean on the s3 as well
    I tried this method on my N7 and it didnt work - I try to open flash related content and it brings up an error and closes Firefox. I dont suppose you could run through how you did it (and maybe where you got the specific versions of firefox/flash)?

    Sorry to ask newb questions. What is difference between Flash and HTML5? How will not having it affect our ability to see certain web content?

    Project Butter, and Google Now make it a worthwhile update. I'd be upset if we didn't get Google now because of S-Voice, especially in light of S-Voice being absolutely terrible.

    My take: Flash is a browser plugin created by Adobe to provide dynamic web site capability back in the earlier HTML days when HTML did not provide anything but static elements. Many (most?) sites have moved away from Flash as an animation technique but one of the major issues is that along with the plugin Adobe created a video format that worked easily with the Flash plugin and many sites (YouTube and CBS as examples) provide their videos in Flash Video format and this no longer works without the Flash Plugin or some other video player browser plugin. HTML5 is the latest international standard. The problem is that even the latest browsers have incomplete implementation of the standard. I don't follow this with any rigor so my info might be out of date but the actual standard is has just been completed or is nearing completion right now which probably accounts for the lack of total browser implementation of the standard.

    <rant>What annoys many of us is that web sites generated in full HTML 5 as proposed by many out on the internet would not run completely in almost any browser today and many people and most corporations are not even updated to the latest. Prime example: Internet Explorer 10 has the most complete implementation of HTML5 of the IE group however it will (currently) only run on Windows 8 which will not even be released until October, 2012. I won't even go into the inconsistent implement of the portions of HTML5 that developers need to make it really work...</rant>

    Sorry about that

    Did you try ICS Browser+ ? Another option for a browser that understands and handled plugins. Since I don't have JB I assume ICS Browser+ runs under it.
