Samsung Galaxy S III receives first official firmware update


The Galaxy S III has gotten its first firmware update. This brings the phone up to firmware version LF2. So far, it seems to be coming to the unlocked UK version, and is being pushed out through Kies and over the air. The update brings with it a slew of stability improvements, although the specifics of these improvements is yet unknown. It does come with a new radio and kernel, and is still based on Android 4.0.4.

If you’re in the UK, be sure to check your Galaxy S III, and let us know how the updates go in the comments.


  1. 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.
