    PLEASE HELP:

    I HAVE A SAMSUNG S3 GT I9300.

    1. WHY IS MY BATTERY DEPLETING EXTREMELY FAST. I HARDLY GET ONE DAY WITH MINIMUM USAGE.

    2. I WANT TO UPDATE TO THE NEW”Galaxy S3 GT I9300 with Official Jellybean 4.1.1 XXDLIB Firmware” BUT AFTER TRYING SEVERAL TIMES I HAVE STOPPED. I FOLLOWED ALL INSTRUCTION:

    How to install Official Android 4.1 XXDLIB Firmware on Galaxy S3 I9300
    1. Download the XXDLIB Jelly Bean firmware file from one of these two locations: HERE or HERE. It is a zip and you should save it on your computer’s desktop.
    2. Next, extract its contents until you obtain a file that has the extension ‘tar.md5′ or ‘.tar’. Do not extract this file any further. There will be another file called ‘ss_dl.dll’, but you shouldn’t worry about it; just leave it where it is.
    3. Download ODIN application from HERE. Extract the ODIN zip contents in a single folder on your desktop.
    4. Switch off your Galaxy S3 I9300 device completely.
    5. Boot it into Download Mode. It can be done by pressing simultaneously ‘volume down’ + ‘home’ + ‘power’. When the screen powers ON you can release the buttons. Press ‘volume up’ again to select Download Mode.
    6. Launch ODIN executable on your PC. After ODIN launches you should connect the smartphone with the computer using the USB cable. Odin should display a confirmation alert. In case it doesn’t say ‘Added’, then you should re-install all Samsung USB drivers or you can change the USB ports. If ODIN recognized the phone, move to the next step.
    7. Now click the ‘PDA’ tab from ODIN’s window and browse your PC for the ‘ I9300XXDLIB_I9300OXFDLI1_I9300XXDLIB_HOME.tar.md5‘ file. It is the same file you’ve extracted in step 2. Make sure that the ‘Re-partition’ option is not selected. Also, do not change any other options.
    8. Press the ‘Start’ button in ODIN and the flashing process of XXDLIB Jelly Bean firmware will start. Odin should say ‘PASS’ when the update has been completed and the I9300 Galaxy S3 will restart.
    9. When the Samsung logo appears you need to unplug the smartphone from PC and wait for the boot process to complete.
    10. Now you should see the new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean home screen. Enter your Google account and then you’ll take complete control over your smartphone’s functions.

    NOTE: In case ODIN doesn’t complete the install, it freezes, it displays an errors such as the ‘Fail message’ then, it means that the update wasn’t applied and you should unplug the phone from PC, close ODIN window, remove the S3 battery and after that re-insert it, then boot again in Android Download Mode and repeat the tutorial starting with step 5.
    NOTE 2: If Odin displays the ‘PASS’ message, the phone restarts but it cannot go past the boot logo, then you will be forced to boot into custom recovery mode and apply a factory reset. Note that this step will delete contacts, apps, SMS etc. Use the instructions below to learn how to boot into recovery and how to perform a factory reset. If the phone boots normally, then you can skip the steps listed below.
    Here’s how to boot custom recovery mode:

    * Power off your SGS3 I9300 completely.
    * Press ‘Home’ + ‘Volume Up’ + ‘Power’ buttons and when the screen switches ON you can release the buttons.
    * When the main Recovery menu appears, you should select ‘wipe data/ factory reset’ and confirm this process.
    * Now you have to select ‘reboot system now’ and wait for the phone boot normally.
    * That should do it. In case your device is still unable to boot properly, then you should revisit the preparation guide, which is above the tutorial.
    I GET FAIL MESSAGE.
