Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S III available in Europe

HTC promised, and Samsung delivered.

After a number of leaked beta builds surfaced, the official Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the Samsung Galaxy S III is now available in select European countries.

Poland (Orange), United Kingdom (T-Mobile) and Romania (Orange) are the first reported European countries to receive the update, which bumps the installed Android version to 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, build number JRO03C.I9300XXDLIB. The update is available via OTA (Over-the-Air) and Samsung KIES, with a 774.6MB size for the ROM and 282.5MB for the OTA update.

In less than four hours since the announcement, there is already a rooted Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean ROM for the Samsung Galaxy S III that allows users to keep elevated rights (popularly known as "root") even after the update. There is no currently available official changelog for the update, which can be attributed to the early stage of the roll-out.
