UPDATE: 14 July, 2011
Thanks for your patience, sorry for the inconvenience this original post may have caused. The firmware version I9000XXJVO which we approved will not be available due to an internal issue with Samsung.
Samsung is currently working on a new and improved firmware release and in conjunction with us, will bring a new version to the market as a maintenance release.
Sincere apologies to any Samsung Galaxy S owners using the 3 variant, there was a communication mistake regarding the software update. Unfortunately, we are yet to test the firmware for 3 and are waiting for Samsung to provide us the right firmware for testing
No ETA has been set when Samsung will release this new version, but please check back on Samsung Kies and our Vodafone blog for further updates.
