    Earlier today I got notification on my unlocked SGS3 that firmware update was available. However, when trying to apply this over the air it failed. I’m not sure why – possibly because my device is rooted? Using Kies on my PC i was able to apply the update without a hitch. It took about 15 mins tho some of that was due to final routine ‘optimising applications’. I lost root but was able to regain no problem. All seems smooth, no data loss, and no obvious difference – but it’s only been a couple of hours so far.
