T999UVDLJC Stock ROM for rooted devices

For those advance users who have a Galaxy S3 devices that is now rooted and runs with unofficial firmware, the stock ROM is also available for grab if you folks wish to revert back your devices to official firmware, that's because your devices is already out of warranty and can't get this update via Kies or OTA anymore. See our detailed guide here for the stock ROM.


  1. Just got it, but I dont notice anything different. I also got updates for most of Samsung preloaded stuff ie; allshare, Kies air.

  2. I got mine too, but no huge differences from UCDLJA. Where's the 4.1.2, c'mon Tmo. What's the use of this update for anyway?

  3. Didn't get any email but I got it early this morning. Geez.. I thought it was 4.1.2

  4. I just got mine. I don't notice anything new yet anyway. Like the others I got updates for the preloaded stuff as well. Hopefully we will get the 4.1.2 sooner than later... But if not I still own the best phone on the planet (at this time)

  5. Send us the 4.1.2 please

  6. This update took away the LTE from Network modes, that is the ONLY thing I saw different. What does that tell you??

  7. Daniel,

    You're absolutely right! It did take away the LTE from Network modes setting. Wow, was the network modes one of the first things you checked after the update?

  8. Hello everybody!
    I need to install more languages on my phone T-999, (a scandinavian language). my question is, there is a way for doing these or not? i bought the phone in the USA but now I live in norway. Some one can help please me with

  9. just like all the other posts, I don't mean to complain. ..I do have the best phone s3! Come on Samsung. ..we in the USA want 4.1.2 or better!

  10. I just did the update via Kies software on pc, and also noticed as well LTE has been removed from the network modes. Seems Suspicious after it has been announced new Samsung s3 with LTE will be sold prior to s4.

  11. If they intentionally removed the LTE capability, it's not a problem at all.. You can still restore back to previous build UVDLJA.

  12. You can download an app "set locale and language". You can find it in play store. I still use this app in my T-999.

  13. I got the update over a month ago. well before the Jan 31st so called release date. I just looked at the update country release date and once again the USA and a small handful of other tiny countries are about the only ones that do not have the 4.1.2 update as of the 11th of Feb. Once again, we USA customers have to wait it out while Myanmar enjoys the update. Way to go US Carries.

  14. I havent noticed anything different regarding this update, besides the LTE being gone from the network mode. I hope that doesnt mean we are screwed out of being on LTE when it is finally activated. Whats everyone else's take on this?
