    Just got a firmware update today. Will check for changes after the update is complete.

    - OS is still 4.0.4
    - Notification colours appear to be fixed. Apps that use the LED's show the right colours.
    - baseband version is different so I guess the phone software is updated.
    - brightness slider and auto brightness toggle added to notification shade

    This is what the update said. I'm new to the S3 and updates, weird that it doesn't really tell you what is being updated.



    "Upgrading *may* improve the performance". Way to go out on a limb there.

    I connected using kies and it says my current firmware is:

    PDA:LE8 / PHONE:LE8 / CSC:LE8 (TLS)

    Looks like I don't have the latest firmware and I'm not getting it, at least not yet.

    Anyone have any ideas as to why?

    Thanks.

    I notice in brackets you have (TLS) whereas I had (RWC)..are you with Telus? I'm trying to decipher those codes and I assumed TLS = Telus while RWC = Rogers Wireless Corp

    That could be it. Maybe it's a carrier specific thing to do with Rogers version of the S3? Who knows, they didn't tell us much of anything about the update.

    FYI, there's a thread about the Rogers update on XDA.

    People on Telus have been reporting getting the update, so I don't think so. I guess I'll have to wait and see what happens.

    It's funny, I have no ota update and no kies update. There are several links to download the file using Odin, but I'm not rooted, so I don't think it'll work, or will it?

    I am on Rogers and got the update on Monday night...also noticed some differences in the camera. There are a few more options on screen it seems.

    Plus in addition to what others have posted of course. If anyone comes across anything else please be sure to post it up.

    I am on Telus and got the notification for update yesterday morning. Have updated and the only difference I had seen up to date is a brightness slider on the notification pull down and a seriously deteriorated battery life (yesterday) seems fine today. I had a 17% SD card battery usage.

    Does any one know what the update was for?

    I could not find any release notes regarding it.

    I've got an SIII that I bought outright from Bell, had it unlocked and using it on Fido.
    I got a notification yesterday of a firmware upgrade... I was about 50% completion of the firmware update when I decided to kill it, as I didn't back up my data. Now that my data is all backed up, I can't seem to get the phone to check for the update. It keeps telling me that there is no update. Kies?
