Why there is no update - there can be many reasons.
1. phone rutovan
2. In the phone firmware, which Samsung does not officially exist (modem from one, pda from another, for example)

Hello ! Yesterday I ran into the Galaxy S3, I myself use the Galaxy Note. My friend's phone with the following problem:
1. The phone was bought new, but with people "with hands"
2. After upgrading via WiFi to 4.0.4. on the phone Galaxy S3 - Sim Lock under the operator Vodafone
3. I tried all the methods of unbinding from Sim Lock indicated in the header - do not work
I had to sit on the Internet and read ... Oddly enough, reading led me to the XDA, where I found information that with the latest updates, the phones are blocked by operators and the old unlock methods do not plow ... I had to search and come across a very simple and easy way ...
You need to download the Sim Fix archive, flash it through CWM, reboot the body, and then just install VoodooGalaxySIIISimUnlock.apk (Galaxy SIII SIM UNLOCK method from supercurio) and just click on Unlock. I want to say again that just this method - Galaxy SIII SIM UNLOCK from supercurio - does not work, first flash the SIMFix archive. I hope someone helped, unfortunately links to the method in the XDA poher: (
Also, for information on XDA, I read that people tried to unlock the phones by links, where they send the code for denyuzhku - does not work, since the last update on the new "Roma" is all not working, at least for the time being. If anyone has any questions, I will help than I can ...

For a more convenient search for people, if someone has the opportunity to protest well and pick up the hat ...

In order to finish the constant statements on the forum that allegedly their S-III is connected to a computer and is seen as a removable medium, and not at all through the MTP protocol, I explainvisually differences in pictures:

How to determine that the S-III is connected to a computer via MTP, and not as removable media?
I. MTP (Media Transfer Protocol):
a) When you connect your phone via USB to a computer, a window appears in which you are invited to open the DEVICE, and not a folder like on removable media:
Attached Image
Please note that the icon at the top of the window is not a removable disk icon, as happens when connecting, for example, a flash drive.

b) Opening the device, you will be surprised to find that the disks that appear appear to be missing letters that windows assigns when connecting external media via USB. There are only "Card" tags (for an external SD card) and "Phone" (for the internal flash memory of the phone):
Attached Image

c) If you try to copy a video file to one of these disks (even if it’s in the “native” phone format .mp4), instead of the expected copy (in the case of a regular USB flash drive) you will see a window where you will be offered to convert the file before copying for Windows 7):
Attached Image
Similarly, if you click on a video file that is already on the phone, instead of the expected playback, this file will first bewholly copied to the computer, and then just start playing.

d) If you open the "Computer" (from the main menu to the right or double-click on the computer icon on the desktop), it turns out that after connecting the phone no additional removable media appeared! The contents of the S-III can only be viewed in the subtitle "Portable devices":
Attached Image

Ii. Removable media (regular flash drive):
a) When connected to a computer via USB, it is suggested to open the FOLDER, not the device:
Attached Image
Note that the icon at the top of the window corresponds to removable media, and windows assigned it (except for the "8GB" label) drive letter (F :).

b) If you open the "Computer", then immediately without clicking anywhere, we will see a new disk (F :) in the removable media section:
Attached Image

c) Well, of course, when copying any media and other files without any conversion questions, etc.,right away The copy process begins. Similarly, any files opened on (F :) open immediately without prior copying to a computer.

Possible causes of problems connecting the Samsung Galaxy S III (GT-I9300) to a PC under Windows and solving them.

Symptoms (one or all at once):
- the device is charged from a USB cable connected to the PC, but the PC does not “see” it in the Explorer (if not charged, then the problem is already in the hardware: cable, PC or device);
- The PC sees the device in “read” mode, i.e. files from the device can be copied, but not to the device.

1. Used not supplied USB-cable. Solution: use the "native" cord, in extreme cases - another, preferably from proprietary technology.
2. The cord is connected to a USB connector located not on the motherboard (connectors on the back of the PC case), but to a loop on the front side. Solution: connect the power cord to the connector located on the back of the PC case.
3. The cord is connected to the USB connector on the back of the case, served by an “additional” USB controller on the motherboard or expansion card. Solution: connect the cable to the USB connector, located as close as possible to the connectors for the keyboard and the mouse (if the case is of the tower type, then these are USB connectors located above the rest).
4. The installation of Windows on a PC was made from a “self-made” (not to be confused with a “pirated”) distribution, which was corrupted by “craftsmen”. Solution: universal - only one, reinstall Windows from the original (not to be confused with the licensed) distribution.
5. The necessary updates for Windows are not installed. Solution: install the latest service pack for your OS version and other updates via Windows Update; first of all - updates related to USB and portable media players.
6. The OS was optimized by disabling “extra” services. Solution: make sure that the Windows Driver Foundation service — the User-mode Driver Framework (WudfSvc) — works, and its launch mode is Automatic (that is, the boot when the PC is turned on). Often advised to reinstall Windows Media Player - it gives exactly the same effect if it gives.
7. The device drivers are installed with an error, or it crashes. Solution: disconnect the device from the PC, then (options):
a) (simple) reinstall the driver through the elimination of connection errors in Kies;
b) (complicated, for running cases) delete all references to the device from the Device Manager, remove the drivers via Install and uninstall programs, reinstall them again separately or together with Kies (ideally, accompany each stage by restarting the PC).

I chatted with the samung at the expense of my Samsung galaxy s3 and the brewing roller from the cap -16. What can be connected to the Samsung GT-I9300
Shatter the myths and put the points.
Here is what they say:

HDMI adapter requires power, it is very insisted on the original power supply from Samsung.
HDMI adapter will not output data, because micro-usb port is for power only.
Connect to the body of the device via an additional USB-Hub can not. You can use only the original Usb-micro adapter - USB-mom for connecting flash drives (Well, here they have completely fallen into account).

You can try to connect the Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, and to the TV hook via HDMI. Unfortunately, I have not yet found such clav and mice. But I would like of course also a joystick.

In order to make a USB-Host I advise you to readUSB Host for Samsung Galaxy S II and Note

I use a self-made wire

Attached Image

All 4 wires of the three cables are connected by analogy power + data + data- power-. I did not remove the power wires from the Micro-usb going to the phone, and did not put the diodes on the reverse power because The phone works like this, and it charges and transfers data at the same time. Mini-Usb I use to connect to the hub. I use the hub and with the included add. power and off. The phone sees different flash drives. I did not find those that he did not identify. Inserted flash cards up to 64 GB, everything works.

To connect to the TV used:

Original HDMI cable link -Samsung HDMI Adapter EPL-3FHUBEGSTD for Galaxy S III

USB Hub I use:
belkin usb 2.0 4-port mobile powered hub
Attached Image

Attached Image

Also, the phone calmly identified the mouse and joystick with the keyboard:

Radio Claudia + mouse with USB receiver (small receiver quietly sticks out of USB) (A4tech mouse: g7-630. Key: A4tech: Model GLS-6) In the photo you can see the receiver inserted into the mouse under the battery slot.

Joystick link -Saitek P2600 Rumble Pad. All buttons and analog twisters recognize.

Video over HDMI adapter on the TV transmits any quality perfectly without brakes. The most that surprised the video of poor quality, he transmitted poorly with the brakes, and the video of good quality transmitted perfectly. Put yourself three programs on the phone to watch different movies. There are other programs, but I liked these.Random film. Tvzavr ivi.ru.. And you have a home theater.

Firmware I9300XXALEF_I9300XXLEF_I9300OXEALE4 - 4 files. Updated through Samsung service to 4.0.4 I9300XXBLH1. And then I put root.

Flash drives are not monitored. I useUsb host controller.
In this program go in the Settings tab, click on the Mount Points and at the end of a string attribute the / mnt / sdcard / flesh. Click ok.Teper in the contribution USB, you can press - a model of your stick Mount + word and choose the line that we added above the proposed list (/ mnt / sdcard / flesh). All the USB flash drive will have you at / mnt / sdcard / flesh. Who do not understand the rights androjda better not to change the path. If you want to connect multiple flash drives that need to add / mnt / sdcard / flesh2 / mnt / sdcard / flesh3 / mnt / sdcard / flesh4 respectively.
I connected up to 3 flash drives. The phone is all determined. If in the Usb Host Controller program in the USB tab The word “Mount” does not appear, try clicking Reset Hard Disk / reload partition table in the same place until you mount it.

Hello guys, I came here not with problems, like most, but with the solution of these; 3

About two weeks ago I discovered that there are problems with the clipboard, namely, it does not save information to the buffer (does not write "copied to the buffer"), and therefore does not ship from it (a long tap on the gear on the keyboard - the paper tablet image is not active), yes And in general, the copy-paste function does not work (tap-paste-empty) - in general, who has problems with this, he knows how it looks.

At forums (both on ours, and on foreign) it is advisedput the root and clean data / clipboard rootexplorer manually,but there was another way, without root, and therefore without loss of warranty, as well as hassle with the service.

So, download Kies from the Samsung website (for examplehttp://www.samsung.com/ua/support/usefulsoftware/KIES/JSP )
Next, we launch, go to the firmware update tools and the initialization read the “alert to Windows”, confirm and read one more alert from the Windows

, we agree - we wait for the end of the firmware update - we check.
Pay attention - update even if you are informed that you already have the newest firmware version.

This procedure helped me, the functioning of the clipboard was restored.
check, I hope this information will help at least one more suffering;)
good luck
