O2 resumes Samsung Galaxy S3 Android Jelly Bean rollout

O2 has resumed rolling out the new version of Android to Samsung Galaxy S3 users, after problems caused the network to suspend the update on Friday.

S3 owners on O2 can download Android 4.1, or Jelly Bean as it’s more colloquially known, now either over the air or via Samsung’s Kies proprietary download solution.

With Three and Vodafone both making the software bump available to customers, just Virgin Media and partner networks T-Mobile and Orange remain as the sole UK carriers yet to get on board with Jelly Bean for their legions of S3 owners.

O2 told would-be updaters: “If you choose to download it over the air, we'd recommend using WiFi as the file size is substantial.

"Alternatively, if you'd like to update without waiting for the over the air prompt, connect your phone to your PC with Samsung Kies and you'll be able to update once it's available on Monday [that’s today, chaps]."

Features Android 4.1 adds to the S3 include Google Now, an improved stock keyboard and a slew of performance optimisations.
