Good news for AT&T subscribers, as a number of readers are now reporting that Samsung’s update to Android 4.1.1 is now available for the Galaxy S III via Kies. Unfortunately, there is no over-the-air option for now, and you will have to use Kies to get the update,Those who do not have Kies can get it via Samsung’s website. Once installed, Galaxy S III users should visit Samsung’s support site, connect the device to the PC.

Users might want to make sure they have plenty of storage space on their phones before downloading, however, because Engadget says early reports show the update will be a fairly hefty 738MB.

As the the update procedure is completed,your GS3 will be running on Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean and the latest TouchWiz UI on top of it.Sprint was the first U.S. carrier to roll out Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to the Galaxy S III in late October and T-Mobile last month.

Verizon is the last one left, as the procedures required to approve the update for distribution are obviously more tedious at the Big Red. We are hoping they will be over soon, though.
