Only a couple of small updates this week:
- The LG Optimus L3 “Bugfix only” update is now available
- The Samsung Galaxy S 3 ”Bugfix” update has been approved by Telstra.
The status of the other updates is unchanged. We hope to firm up the dates for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy S 3 Jelly bean updates in the next week so hopefully I will be able to communicate actual dates in next week’s update.
That’s all for this week. As always let us know if you have any questions or suggestions.
(PS: You will notice the Samsung Galaxy Note ICS and N9 PR 1.3 updates have been removed from this thread - this is because they have been deploying for over 1 month now and have thus been moved to the "Device updates - Archive " thread)

Thanks Craig. What are the bug fixes for the S3 please?
the important things that Samsung and Telstra need to work on IMO are:
1- Phone signal (my phone drop calls and i had to switch to WCDMA Only mode which helped but i still get the occasional drop)
2- Data freeze on a train or a bus and i have to switch airplane mode on and off
3- S3 keep switching networks G, E, H, H+, etc.. which is probably the cause of point 1 & 2 above.
3- Battery usage problem
4- WiFI power saving problem
It would also be nice to get the brightness bar in the notifications area.

The jelly bean update for the s iii was apparently released in Europe today. @ashwassif, the brightness bar in the notification area will come out in the jelly bean update, i dont know whats in this bugfix update.

Im pretty sure its the Battery Drain issue bug....
"The battery drain issue is caused by the Cell Standby feature that accounts for 50-70% more than even the Screen or Android System. This Cell Standby feature is controlled by framework-res.apk file. According to the developer who hacked the system and files, the power drain value for Cell Standby is set to 34 mA but the reasonable value must be set to 3.4 mA. The overall value of power drain is 10 time higher than what it needs to be."

Excuse me.... But you just posted this on sept 25th... and you say Galaxy Nexus jelly bean will be late sept?
It is late sept... and saying samsung isnt the one releasing the upgrade information. It is all supplied by Google and up to you Telstra to add the one and only thing that makes it so we dont get updated directly from google... HD VOICE....
So as in late sept meaning when really?

The latest information we have from Samsung is "late September". We are expecting an update from them later this week and with any luck that will see a test submission by the end of the month (yes I know that is only a few days away).
To your second question - Samsung need to provide the update for the Galaxy Nexus to Telstra - not Google. Any changes/fixes/updates in the firmware come from Samsung. Telstra does not (and cannot) directly make any changes itself to any device firmware as that firmware is "owned" by the device manufacturer.

@modulateddreams - There are actually several variants of the Galaxy Nexus available. Some are updated directly by Google, the rest are updated by Samsung. Telstra's Galaxy Nexus variant (GT-i9250T) is updated by Samsung, so unfortunately, any delays you're seeing in getting Android 4.1 on your Galaxy Nexus is due to Samsung, not Telstra. Samsung's been slow at getting the 4.1 updates out to their Galaxy Nexuses.
