The official Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean OS update has been made available last week for the international version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 Smartphone but no official announcement regarding the launch of the version for the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 (SCH-I535) has been made by the company. But there seems to be a good news for all the Verizon Galaxy S3 (SCH-I535) Smartphone owners as the recently leaked Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean Firmware indicates that the official version will be soon launched by the company.
Sprint was among the first carriers to launch the official Galaxy S3 Jelly bean firmware and it seems that Verizon will follow it soon. The member of XDA Developers (jucytec) leaked the I535VRBL15 Jelly Bean Firmware so that users can see as to what their Verizon Smartphone will look like after the Jelly Bean update. Since the leaked version of the firmware comes packed with various issues and bugs so the users who are planning to update their phone with this leaked version must be rest assured on how to complete the update as failure may brick your handset and cause other risks and damage as well.
The leaked Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean Firmware is compatible only with the Verizon’s Galaxy S3 model and will not work with any other model or device. Before updating the version, the users must make sure to take the backup of all their data present in the phone so that in case of any problem the recovery of the needed data can be taken. Before updating the firmware, the user must also make sure that the device has a battery power of at least 80%, its USB debugging is enabled and the PC has the installed USB Driver for Galaxy S3.
After fulfilling all these requirements you are all set to install the leaked firmware update and start by downloading the leaked ROM file in internal SD card root of your phone. Then turn off your handset and boot it in the recovery mode and perform the full Wipe Data/ Factory Reset. Then after performing the Wipe Cache partition go to the main menu in Recovery to select and install the zip file. After the installation process gets completed, go to the main menu of the recovery and then reboot the handset which will lead to the successful installation of the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean Firmware on Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 (SCH-I535).
