    Hey everyone jones'n for JB! As described previously, follow the directions of this link and you will have JB. Did it on my wife's S3 last night and my son's tonight. First try. No rooting or the such. Works like a charm. Merely fools the Sprint servers into thinking your phone is next in line for the update.

    Where you live has absolutely zero bearing on when you will get updates just so everyone knows. If you want the update go to qbking77.com or look up qbking77.com video on YouTube of how to manually update to Jelly Bean its very simple. You don't even have to do any "rooting nonsense" or any of the "programming nonsense". Here is the video.

    Your welcome. I think that method is much easier then QBKing77's. However, his is not difficult merely a few more steps.

    I received notification that my phone was going to update, but never did, so after 10 days I went through the steps described and it updated to JB on the first try. My wife then did it to her phone and same thing, first try it updated. She never received the notice of an impending update like I did. Thanks for the info, I'd rather do it on wifi where it took less than 4 minutes to download.
