No, you have to get the file from team uscellular and use odin to flash it. http://forums.androidcentral.com/showthread.php?t=234906

Or you can take it to your local USC store and they can install it.

I think an OTA update is going to be on the 21st.


JB is working very well. Fast smooth and iam getting better battery life, benchmark scores have increased a bit too.

My store has no clue. They don't have it, and wouldn't know How to do the update if they did. They're idiots. I'll wait.

o_O WISHING I HAD WAITED AND GOT THE NOTE 2, ANYONE WANNA TRADE? o>_

will it void the warranty loading it this way?

If u go into the store to do it, it won't. I would let them do it if they had a clue about it. But they don't. I'm just gonna wait. Also since it was posted on their website, it shouldn't.

Okay better update,

After a few days on JB its going just fine, have yet to find any real problems and so far everything works.

Battery life seems to be worse compared to ics BUT iam still messing with settings and tweaks, i was rooted before and I dont remember what my battery life was before i rooted. So it may be on par with a stock ics setup. Signal strength dosent seem to have changed, no better no worse.
So my favorite thing is just the speed of the phone, its faster when loading things from the sd card (pictures and movies) and rarely bogs down when multitasking. Games play much smoother too!

Quadrant score, stock ics, rooted but no changes other then that.

Quadrant score, stock jb, not rooted.

As for the warranty part iam not sure, in theory i would think it voids warranty since you are flashing with odin, but my device shows normal, official status and flash counter hasnt changed. So if you took the phone back they wouldnt know. Again dont quote me on that, lol.
If your worried just wait a few days and you wont have to worry.

Battery life has decreased for me, likely due to Google Now, not 100% sure.

Also just found that audio in Netflix does not work after seeing the other thread on here. Audio in every other app I can think of works just fine. Have uninstalled and reinstalled it and still no audio.


Though another user on TeamUSCellular is having the same issue with a different JB ROM.

Only other thing I can think to try would be to do a factory reset, but I'm going to wait a bit before I mess with that until I am home and have some free time.

No sound with Netflix for me either. The Netflix app was updated today but still no success. I see comments on their apps page of other S3 users losing audio after Jelly Bean update. Hopefully there is a solution soon.
