    Hurry up with the S3 Jelly Bean update Telstra!

    If you're on a Galaxy Nexus, then your best bet is to forget about getting releases from Telstra and go straight to the Google factory images (https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images).
    Downside: need to wipe the phone as part of the upgrade process
    Upside: 4.2 is out for Galaxy Nexus

    Hang on - If both Vodafone and Telstra are checking the same image, and one can only assume around the world it has been released as well, the only difference I can think of is making it work on 850MHz.

    So basically, once again, Telstra is dragging their heels for no good reason? Or just need more time to load shitware onto the ROMs?
