          Technically there shouldn’t be any problem. However, before installing this make a note of your current firmware baseband and version details. If anything goes wrong we will try to find out a firmware that match your S3.

          • lokesh

            Baseband version : I9300XXLH1

  • ashwin

    when will the latest 4.2.1 firmware will get released????

    • arafat21

      That not going to be happen soon. Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean rolled out recently. Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean is something different mostly because multi-user feature. So, we presume it most likely comes on June-July after the launch of Galaxy S4.
