firmware update (uk)

I also got mine OTA this morning. Two changes I have noticed whilst playing with the phone since
1. Brightness is now adjustable in the drop down notifications menu
2. You are now able to mute or switch the phone to vibrate with a long press of the power button, the options are at the bottom of the screen that opens.

I am using a factory unlocked SIII supplied by Vodafone.

Both of these may be very simple changes, but I find them very useful.

sure that those changes were in a previous build. Not found anything new in this current update though being only 1.7MB, don't suppose too much has changed. Probably just a stability fix.

Just downloaded it after checking here, any info on what it's supposed to add/fix/patch/remove?

At work & most sites are blocked otherwise I'd check.

I already had the settings button & vibrate/mute button in the drop down notification screen, my update was also approx 26mb.

Looks like we have all received slightly different updates, mine was 96mb. This is also the only update I have received since I got the phone. I guess I have had it about 8 weeks.
Have to say, being an IPhone convert, I am loving Android and the things you can do with it. Still have plenty to learn.
