Update 22/10, 8:00:

Samsung has confirmed the Jelly Bean update is now available.

 

Update 20/10:

As you might have noticed, this hasn't gone live yet. We were expecting it to on Friday and are working with Samsung to figure out what went wrong and will update ASAP. 
 

Original message:

Hey Guys,

 

Good news! The wait time is almost over for Samsung Galaxy SIII users. From tomorrow, 19th October '12, you'll be be able to upgrade to the much awaited 4.1 Jelly Bean update over Wi-Fi or via Kies.

 

If you have activated the 'auto-update' feature from out of box, you will be prompted to download the 4.1 Jelly Bean update.

 

JB

CSC is the code in the Firmware that the update process looks for to know when to push the update to which phones. O2U = O2 branded firmware.
I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

I got Jelly Bean tonight via Kies.

 

About an 800 meg download I think, might have been a bit less.

 

Installed without any problems and my S3 is working as normal.

Yes, good advice.

 

Kies tell you to do this but people undating over the air might not get these instructions, I know I never have when I've had other updates.

Yeah I couldn't get it via my phone, that's why I tried Kies, when I clicked firmware update it was there, this was on 3, might be different on another provider.
