There’s already been a preliminary leak of Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean for the Wind/Mobilicity Galaxy S III (which we didn’t report on due to bugginess) but today brings us the first leak for the Rogers/Bell/Telus version of the device.
A build of Android 4.1.1 for the Bell Galaxy S III has leaked to the net, build number I747MVLALI2c, courtesy of SamMobile and they say that the official version should come at the end of the September. Due to wide cross-compatibility, however, the leak will run just fine on any of the many i747M variants available in Canada.
At this point in order to install the leak you need to be running Bell’s version of the LH1 firmware and install this 308MB OTA update from the official recovery, or through Kies. Custom ROMs are being developed as we speak and will likely be available in the next 12-24hrs for all variants of the i747M.
Check this XDA-Developer thread for more information on the progress of the leak. If you’re a custom ROM user, the next 24 hours are going to be pretty exciting if you own a Galaxy S III i747M.
