Hello user of AT&T Galaxy S3! Are you jealous of a friend who owns an android device which recently got Jelly Bean Android 4.3 update? Well, crave no more. Stock Jelly Bean 4.3 firmware is now available for your favorite AT&T Samsung Galaxy S3, model no. SGH-I747.

Although it’s a leaked firmware –which makes us suspect for some bugs — well, so far, no nugs have been reported. Cool, right?

So, without further ado, let’s update your Samsung Galaxy S3 at AT&T, SGH-I747, to the latest desert from Google, the Android 4.3 Jelly bean. 

WARNING!

Warranty may be void of your device if you follow the procedures given on this page!

You only are responsible for your device. We won’t be liable if any damage occurs to your device and/or its components.

CHECK DEVICE MODEL NO.

To make sure your device is eligible with this, you must first confirm its model no. in ‘About device’ option under Settings. Another way to confirm model no. is by looking for it on the packaging box of your device. It must be SGH-I747!

Please know that this page is meant only for Samsung Galaxy S3 at AT&T in U.S., model no. SGH-I747. Please DO NOT try the procedures given here on other variants of the Galaxy S3: SGH-I747m, GT-I9300, GT-I94305, and those at Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, etc.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN.

Now we don’t need you to loose all your important data on your phone, do we? So, you must do this pre-installation stuff before flashing this firmware on your SGH-I747, in order to avoid any complications later and have a smooth and successful process.

BACK UP YOUR DEVICE

Every single file on your SGH-I747 will get deleted, let alone apps and games and their settings and data. So, be sure to back up important data and stuff before you start playing around here as you will lose your apps and app-data (app settings, game progress, etc.), and in rare case, files on sd card, too.

Make sure your Galaxy S4 is at least charged to minimum of 30% before doing this.

ANDROID 4.3 UPDATE FOR THE AT&T GALAXY S3, SGH-I747

So, the preparation is out of the way, let’s get to flashing the ROM to get the Android 4.3 up and running on your AT&T Galaxy S3.

DOWNLOADS

Now, you have a choice between two flashable zips.

The first one is Unmodified ROM: it’s got no root access, and has KNOX and SE-Linux enabled.

The second one is Modified ROM: it’s got root access and has KNOX and SE-Linux Disabled

Download the ROM file, any one of the two, and the model file given below, and save it in a separate folder on your computer (just to keep things tidy, that is).

STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE

IMPORTANT: You must be on stock firmware before proceeding. So, if you are using a custom ROM, it’s better to install a fresh Samsung firmware before you do this.

And also you must have TWRP or ClockworkMod Recovery, flashed on your your SGH-I747.

Get the TWRP RECOVERY for your AT&T GALAXY S3 here!

After you’ve got the recovery installed and working, transfer the two files you downloaded above to your phone’s sd-card using the USB cable. Remember where you paste them, and preferable, create a folder by name of 4.3 ROM and then paste both the files inside this folder. Of the two files, one is your ROM file (either of unmodified and modified ROM, that is) and other is modem file.

Instructions to install:
For users of TWRP Recovery:
  1. To enter in recovery mode, switch off your device and press and hold Home and Volume Up and Power buttons.
  2. Select, Wipe and swipe to confirm. DO NOT wipe anything else.
  3. Now, go back to the main menu of TWRP and select Install zip . Navigate to the file d2att_I747UCUEMJ2_bootloader_modem.zip and select it and confirm the flashing process by swiping on next prompt.
  4. Again, go back to the main menu of TWRP and select Install Zip from  sd-card. Navigate to the file d2att_I747UCUEMJ2_root_noknox.zip or d2att_I747UCUEMJ2_stock_noroot.zip whichever of these you have downloaded and select it and confirm the flashing process swiping on next prompt.
  5. Wait for the Firmware to flash. If you have done everything as directed, the flashing will go smoothly.
  6. Reboot System now as soon as the flashing process completes and enjoy the latest offering of Android on your SGH-I747.
For users of ClockworkMod Recovery (CWM) users:
  1.  To enter in recovery mode, switch off your device and press and hold Home and Volume Up and Power buttons.
  2. Select, Wipe data and factory Reset and confirm it by pressing Yes on next screen. DO NOT wipe anything else.
  3. Now, Go back to the main menu of CWM and select Install zip from sd-card. Navigate to the file d2att_I747UCUEMJ2_bootloader_modem.zip and select it and confirm the flashing process by selecting Yes on next prompt.
  4. Again, go back to the main menu of CWM and Select Install Zip from  sd-card. Navigate to the file d2att_I747UCUEMJ2_root_noknox.zip or d2att_I747UCUEMJ2_stock_noroot.zip whichever of these you have downloaded and select it and confirm the flashing process selecting Yes on next prompt.

  • Jagar Berwari

    I’ve been trying different flashes for the last few days on my Samsung Galaxy S3 SGH-i747M, and finally tried this. Since I have ClockworkMod installed, I simply copied to SDCard and from there installed from zip.

    Everything went well, except as some of you are saying it does not recognizes my Rogers SIM card and the logo is AT&T lol.

    Anyways I’m just about to roll back to Androind 4.1 :( unfortunately.

    Very nice tutorial … good job

    Recently I was extremely low on money and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money on the internet! I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills! I’m so glad, I did this!! – m8lz

    Updated from 4.1.1 to 4.3, as the OTA 4.1.2 update kept failing (since my device is rooted). Only had to do the “root_noknox” update, as the modem bootloader resulted in a status 7 on my device. Got scared for a bit as it took a lot longer to boot up after the update, but once I saw the apps updating, I was OK.

  • Tanjid Hossain

    is there is any 4.3 updete for s3 i747m ?

  • jacob

  • kim

    does my phone have to be rooted to get TWRP?

  • Peter Ludwig

    I installed the root version and after understanding the WIPE process all went fine. However, I lost root. I did verify that I installed the correct file. Any suggestions please.

    • JesBdx

      Same issue. All is well except I lose root after reboot. I have updated SuperSU. Is there an updated kernel we’re missing?

  • Peter Ludwig

    My version of TWRP has a WIPE submenu with a bunch of options. Exactly what selections do I pick when I get to the submenu page? Thanks!

    • http://www.theandroidsoul.com/ Kapil

      Simple/default wipe/factory reset would do. And, selecting additional options won’t hurt, but don’t select Internal SDCard, so that files aren’t deleted.

  • woooh77
