But, just after two weeks of the release, it was barred. Samsung India testified the barring by clearing that the update containted some bugs which could harm the devices. Samsung had also promised to roll out the update as soon as possible.
Samsung indeed did keep up its words. It has now again made the update available. But when the users tried to do an OTA update, they received automatic software update message, which said that, “Access to the software update service is provided to users in the order in which they request it. Try later.”
This might mean that the update is under process and thus, users might receive the update over the air in a few days. Meanwhile, Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S3 users in India is available via Samsung Kies with a file size of 290MB.
