New Delhi: Samsung had recently halted the roll out of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for the Galaxy S III in India after starting it earlier this month. But now the company has resumed rolling out the update, which is available using the Samsung Kies software.

The update had begun rolling out, and many were not able to receive it over-the-air (OTA). We have been trying to update the device OTA, but we keep receiving an error message, "Access to the software update service is provided to users in the order in which they request it. Try later."

However, the update is available through the Kies software, and its file size is 310MB. It appears as if one would have to wait for a while to update the handset through the over-the-air update. To update the firmware, all that the users of the S III need to do is head over to the phone's settings and check if it is available.
