I have a samsung s3 and did a factory reset on it. It now has android 4.0.4 on it. Is there any way to update this to anything newer, as the one on it does not work well at all. I tried a program called kies? All it does is show my phone is connected, there is no way to update it with that. I tried through google store, but it seems those are fakes and ad based spam. Just trying to figure out if this can be updated, or is it good for paper weight?

Hi
Is it rooted?
If so look on XDA Developers for a custom rom or other details

Yes, I think you need to take advantage of Samsung Kies to update the firmware of your V4.0.4.

Honestly speaking its only good for paper weight. Your phone's hardware is not compatible with the newer version of android OS. I hope this helped.
