I just noticed this morning that my Samsung GS3 has a firmware update ready to install.

 

Anyone know what this firmware upgrades/changes?

I have not noticed any battery drain BUT i have read it is happening after this update. Hopefully with JB coming out soon, it may fix it.

I hope so. I noticed it's a lot harder to swipe to unlock as well. This case might be unique to my handset alone. 

 

Prior to this update I've experienced the display kinda being glitchy or flickering, primarily during text messaging. Anyone know what the problem is? is it a hardware issue I should bring back for warranty or is it software based.

Battery drain here seems a lot worse than the previous build. Signal strength seems a bit better,and so far no sim invalid errors like I used to get.

My email started to crash after this update.   I have 2 different exchange accounts and 3 POP3 accounts.    The POP3 accounts are fine but the exchange accounts will crash.    All I have to do is read open and close email repeatly.    I don't think this is a server side issue because the 2 exchange accounts belong to different companies.

 

Is anyone out there experiencing the same?

Re: Rogers Samsung Galaxy S3 Firmware Update Sept 04/2012

I am having the same problem after the update.  POP works fine, Exchange email really sluggish and crashes.  The only work around I found (not perfect) is to change the sync email to 1 month instead of all.

Have you tried to factory reset the phone & see if it works after that? Back up the phone with Kies & then do it.

low battery after update here too...before update easily got a full day out of it with battery to spare, after update i am lucky to get 8-9 hrs out of it (just like my s2 lte 😞 )  I hope the upcoming jelly bean update corrects the issue.  its def. a software issue, and not hardware, which can be fixed!

When I called Roger support for this ... they said they dont support firmware upgrade issues and I am supposed to call Samsung instead.

 

Really?

I seem to have fixed my battery drain problem introduced by the latest update.
I noticed that the Samsung account was constantly trying to sync. I disabled all the syncing on the Samsung account and battery life is back to normal.

Hello icemanpower

The 4.1 update for the S3 will come " Late November". This is for the Rogers S3. Rogers has released only this info & you can find it on the thread called " OS Upgrade Schedules". Here is the link for more info. Rogers will release more info on that post when they get some info.
