LEAKED: Install Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean ROM On Samsung Galaxy S III

Android 4.2, Jelly Bean improves on the speed and simplicity of Android 4.1 and includes all new features – Photo Sphere and a completely redesigned camera app, new Gesture Typing keyboard, Google Now with all new cards, and much more.

Everything in Jelly Bean feels fast, fluid, and smooth. Moving between home screens and switching between apps is effortless, like turning the pages of a book.

Jelly Bean improves performance throughout the system, including faster orientation changes, quicker switching between recent apps, and smoother and more consistent rendering across the system through vsync and triple buffering.

Jelly Bean has more reactive and uniform touch responses, and makes your Android device even more responsive by boosting your device’s CPU instantly when you touch the screen, and turns it down when you don’t need it to improve battery life.

If you already have a Galaxy S III and are not sure whether you wanna shell out extra dough just to get those features or stick with what you’ve got, we have some amazing news for you! You can now get the latest S4 camera features and more on your S III without having to shell out a penny, thanks to SamMobile who have shared the latest official Android 4.2.2 XXUFME3 firmware with us that just got leaked. Read on for details & installation instructions.

  1. Take a backup of any data that you might need in case you later need to do a factory reset. This includes any data you might have on your internal SD card.
  2. Download the ROM’s package and extract the contents of the downloaded zip file to your computer.
  3. Download and install Samsung’s USB drivers, if they aren’t already installed.
  4. Power your phone off and boot it into download mode by holding Home and Volume-down buttons while powering it back on.
  5. Launch Odin on your computer and connect your phone to it via USB. You should get a blue indicator sign on Odin.
  6. Click ‘PDA’ in Odin and select the I9300XXUFME3_I9300OJKFME1_HOME.tar.md5 file.
  7. Leave everything as it is, and especially make sure that Re-Partition is unchecked.
  8. Click ‘Start’ to begin flashing, and wait for the process to finish.
You should now have the latest leaked Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean firmware up and running on your S III.

In case there are any issues like bootloops or force-closes when you reboot your phone after flashing the firmware, reboot your phone into recovery by powering it off and then powering it back on while keeping the Home and Volume-up keys pressed, perform a wipe data/factory reset, and reboot the phone. This WILL delete all your apps, data and internal SD card contents, but your phone should boot and work fine after that. For this reason, taking a backup before flashing anything like this is extremely important.
