    Verizon finally outed the Android 4.1/Jelly Bean update for their version of the Samsung Galaxy S III. The update will begin rolling out December 14th, which in case you haven't been paying attention to the calendar is tomorrow! It includes a host of the usual bells and whistles as well as a few extra goodies. Here's a quote from the Verizon press statement with full details,

    As usual, the update will likely roll out in batches, so if you don't see yours right away have patience as it might take a few days to come to everyone. VZW SGS3 users can commence their happy dance now... dancedroid

    My question is, are we going to be getting the Premium stuff that was ported over from the Galaxy Note II? The update says nothing about it. :/

    Personally I don't think we'll ever see premium stuff.

    Hey, I went over to XDA and it was like I reading Chinese. I'm looking for the stock TW ROM, debloated. I'm running AOKP now and I miss the TW, but use Google Now all the time. ANy chance you could hook me up with a link?

    I didn't get an automatic notification about the OTA update, but I did go out and manually scan for the update, and it was available on my phone. Others might try to do this as well, you may be able to get the update today.I'll let you all know if the Premium Suite is on there.*EDIT*Okay, so apparently I'm incorrect... I just checked for updates, and it said one was available so I installed it. I guess it was just the last OTA update that came out. Says I'm now on I535VRLHE 4.0.4. False alarm guys.

    Okay, Update #2. I checked for updates again, and I had it. I updated and now have my Jellehbeanz. From everything I can see, the Premium Suite was not included, like we assumed it wouldn't be.
