So do we get Google Now?

I thought that was a major addition to Jelly Bean, but I can't seem to find it anywhere.
yes, it should be called "Google" under Apps.

Could someone please compose a list of the new features in S3 4.1? I just flashed a custom rom yesterday and don't want to go back to stock Andorid for some small features.

I forced it when I saw this thread.

Setting -> About -> Check Update -> Update Software

No kies. I am with Rogers. Wind does not have it yet.

Thanks dude!

Sick update so far. Man, Project Butter is like night and day. Phone feels so much smoother now.
Rogers is the worst company in Canada. I hate them so much I am using my signature space to warn you, the reader, to stay away from them.
Please, do not give them your business.
Thank you.

I noticed that palm swipe screenshot doesn't work anymore. But pressing the home and power button at the same time still works.

Here's a GOOD tutorial I've used in the past to go to a stock O/S

http://www.theandroidsoul.com/mvlalh1/ (except ofcourse you use the stock OS reflecting the carrier your phone was initially purchased from)
Where can I find the stock firmware for Rogers?

Google Now isn't working for me very well so far. There must be something messed up in the settings. I had one my old phone and it was perfect. Very fast and pretty acurate.
I can't even get it to talk back to me yet.
