A Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 bug fix update is rolling out to owners as the carrier attempts to fix the issues that arose after owners of the aging flagship installed a previous piece of firmware.
Earlier this month, Verizon pulled an update for the Samsung Galaxy S3, specifically the VRBMD3 update that rolled out several weeks ago. The update proclaimed itself to be a huge update in that it brought Multi-Window View amongst other big name features.
However, soon after the update arrived, Galaxy S3 owners began complaining about a myriad of issues including problems obtaining a signal and issues with battery life.
Verizon confirmed the issues and said that it would be rolling out a bug fix update to tackle the issues that Galaxy S3 owners were experiencing with the update and it appears that the carrier has kept its promise as a Galaxy S3 bug fix update has rolled out to owners of the Verizon Galaxy S3 in an attempt to patch up the issues.
The update is VRBMF1 and Verizon says it contains improvements and enhancements for the former flagship. We aren’t entirely sure what those are, as Verizon has yet to post details to the Galaxy S3’s support website, but it’s an update that is likely aimed at the battery life and connectivity issues that have been plaguing owners for weeks now.
The update likely also is preparation for another big update in the form of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean which is thought to be heading out sometime in the third quarter of this year.
Samsung has yet to confirm Android 4.2 for the Galaxy S3 though it has confirmed Galaxy S4 TouchWiz Nature UX 2.0 features for the device sometime later on this year. Those features are likely going to be coming along with Android 4.2.
In the meantime, users will have to contend with this latest update and hope that it indeed improves upon the experience that was brought with the last update.
