Shit don't work. Tried multiple times on my GS3 and no luck. Guess have to wait for official release.

This is how I got 4.0.4 on my T-Mobile US HTC One S. Who knows how long I would be waiting if I relied on them. I hope Jelly Bean is soon. Obviously using this method won't create an update out of thin air though. If nothing is available, nothing will happen, even with phased OTA rollouts in some cases.

The thread says it does, If it's NOT AVAILABLE in certain region yet this method should still make able to update.

As I said, this "exploit," if you will, does not CREATE an update. If there is nothing available, then nothing will download. This is just useful if you might know an update has been pushed from Google or your phone manufacturer, and your carrier or region is [typically] stalling the OTA. As I also said, with rollouts going out in phases, in some cases it is handled as not officially available, for ANY region, therefore returning nothing.

@To All having confusions,

You'll only get OTA update if it's being rolled out for any region (DUH!). This will not create an OTA :P
