    Verizon Galaxy S3 Receiving Update to VRBMB1, Improves Keyboard and Bluetooth ? Droid Life

    A new update for Verizon’s version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 has been approved as build VRBMB1 (Android 4.1.2). The update improves predictive text in the keyboard, allows users to take pictures while on calls, syncs emails better, and enhances Bluetooth. That’s pretty much it, well, other than some added bloatware.
    It’s not Android 4.2 The update is 150.3MB in size.
    Typically when Verizon approves updates, we see them arrive on devices within a week. The rollout tends to start with a few devices and then rollout to more as the days progress.
    More info.

    Wonder what the chances of them changing the color of the notification bar back to black would be? Here's to hoping.

    I haven't even received the first up date to JB yet? Should I be worried about this?

    No root here. I have tired updating manually, it says connecting for a few moments, then goes back to the last screen for updates. Verizon has told me to be patient, but I'm beginning to think there is more to it.

    4.1.2 Update installed----Pardon my ignorance, but what exactly does making Amazon a "stub" application mean? I can't find a jot of difference when accessing Amazon through my browser or on my app screens.

    Ok. To answer my own question, a stub app seems to be an app with the added security of a line of code, called a "stub", which prevents hackers from accessing transactions made via apps like Amazon and Google Play. But I'm not entirely sure about this. Any pros out there feel free to weigh in!

    I have the GS 3, but am using it only as a wifi device, no Verizon service. Should I receive the notification about the update to 4.1.2? When I go to check for updates manually, it says " service unavailable". Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
