    Official Stock Firmware for the Samsung Galaxy S III Leaked

    Just yesterday, we reported that XDA Elite Recognized Developer Chainfire had triumphantly rooted the Samsung Galaxy S III, sight unseen. Just when you thought things couldn’t get any better for Samsung’s new flagship, things have.

    XDA Recognized Developer Faryaab has now shared with us the official I9300XXALE8 firmware for the much anticipated device. The firmware itself is carrier unbranded, and is based on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. Naturally, it also dons Samsung’s proprietary TouchWiz interface, which we highlighted in our hands-on with the SGS3 in London just a few weeks ago.

    The leaked firmware is important for two reasons. First, it will help future SGS3 owners in the event that they need an original firmware to restore from. Secondly, and perhaps more interestingly, the leaked SGS3 firmware will more than likely serve as the base for many porting efforts, given the interesting user interface tweaks and gestures we saw in our time with the device.

    Base Firmware: I9300XXALE8 (4.0.4)
    Region Europe
    Carrier: Unbranded
    Build Date: 13th May 2012
    Modem: XXLE8
    Change List: 554452

    Instructions For Flashing Firmware:

    • Extract the firmware
    • Open the included Odin
    • Put your device in Recovery MODE (Home + Volume up + Power)
    • Wipe Data/Factory reset
    • Wipe Cache
    • Take Out Your battery put it back in
    • Put your device into Download MODE (Home + Volume Down + Power)
    • Click PDA and select *.tar.md5
    • Then finally click START! 

    Developers wishing to get in on the action and future hopeful SGS3 owners can find the goods in the release thread.
