T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3 (SGH-T999) official Android 4.3 update has finally surfaced. The firmware build comes in the form of T999UVUEMJC or UEMJC, according to Samsung Kies server. Some speculations that T-Mo Galaxy S3 users could be left behind among other U.S. carriers to received the 4.3 update, but it’s somehow quite understandable enough since there is some panic ahead of Android 4.3 on Samsung Galaxy S3 recently. Even though, there are certain reports on other carriers, including the international Galaxy S3’s Android 4.3 update that Samsung had to pulled out the update due to some issues concerning how the 4.3 software build performs on the Galaxy S3 devices. Sounds much likely that there are some sort of bugs that needs to fix as soon as possible. But let’s hope and see if T-Mobile will now came up with the most stable Android 4.3 build because they are the first U.S carrier that has unleashed the Galaxy S3 4.3 update.
So for those of you who owns the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3 with model number SGH-T999 only, other models like T999L, T999N and T999V including those with Canadian carriers, the updates will likely come soon too. You should see this 4.3 update hitting your device from now on, its around 527MB to download. The rolled-out usually is in stages and only few lucky owners in select areas will get the update first, but the rolled-out will last until a couple of days and all Galaxy S3 will be covered.
There are no official changelog has been posted by Samsung nor T-Mobile as of this moment, so we will try to figure out about the new stuff included on this 4.3 update. This already live via Samsung Kies server and we are hoping that this update will never get pulled-out again.
Here’s the original odin flashable stock firmware for advanced users that can be used for those devices that are rooted and technically can’t update through OTA or Kies anymore. The stock ROM was directly pulled from Kies server -just look for the TMB_T999UVUEMJC firmware at our Galaxy S3 stock firmware download page.
