Are you using a Galaxy S III on the Vodafone network? If so, you’ll be stuck on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, while much of Europe has been enjoying the buttery goodness of Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean.

Oh, and let’s not forget expandable notifications.
Anyway, if you’ve got an SGS3 with Vodafone then the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update is poised to begin rolling out at 1PM AEST. The update will be OTA or via Samsung Kies. As you could expect, because of the …

Before I start writing – if you bought a Galaxy Nexus from any of the Australian carriers then this update is not for you, sorry. You’ll have to wait for all the submissions, testing, etc. which will probably not come for a very long time seeing as though the GNex in Australia has still not been updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
For those of you who are lucky enough to have bought your phone from elsewhere, it’s likely you’re holding onto an international Galaxy Nexus (yakju). This is the unlocked international GNex that was not purchased from the Google Play Store.
It has been reported by Android Police that users who have the yakju variant of the Galaxy Nexus …
