Android 4.2 Jelly Bean is Google’s latest Android version, but the updated Jelly Bean operating system is officially available only on Nexus devices, and there’s no telling when some of the most popular Android devices out there will be updated to Android 4.2, Galaxy S3 included.
Earlier today we heard that Haier wants to launch an Android 4.2 Smart TV later this year, and the TV maker could beat various Android OEMs when it comes to actually launching Android 4.2 devices.
Getting back to the best sold Android handset to date, the Galaxy S3, we still don’t have a roll out date for its Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update, so if you’re not willing to wait anymore, there are definitely other avenues for you.
We’ll remind you that we don’t encourage you to install custom software on your handsets, and that in case you go down that road, you’ll be the only person responsible for whatever happens in the process.
That said, we have a new video for you in which we take a look at the Galaxy S3 running the Android 4.2-based CyanogenMod 10.1 custom ROM. That’s definitely one way to go to enjoy Google’s latest mobile operating system on one of the most popular devices out there.
Are you running CM 10.1 on the Galaxy S3 or are you waiting for the official firmware to come out?
