How do I update my Straight Talk Galaxy S3 to 4.3 or higher?

I recently bought the Samsung Gear 2 watch because it is compatible with the S3. However, my Straight Talk S3 is still running Android version 4.1.2 and my watch won't connect unless my phone runs 4.3 or higher. Straight Talk says my phone is up to date, but obviously it isn't. Is there any way I can either manually update my phone to 4.3, or can I somehow connect my Samsung Gear 2 watch to my phone even though it still runs 4.1.2. Also, I tried Kies and it said my phone was up to date as well.

Unfortunately the Samsung Galaxy Straight Talk does not offer built in support for JellyBean 4.3 on your version of the Galaxy S3. That is why there is no official update available. Samsung says that the S4 is required to support that OS, and that there is no support for JellyBean 4.3 on older model phones. Your phone, according to Samsung, is currently updated. You can try to root your device and install the 4.3, but many Straight Talk users have complained about severe battery degradation when doing so, and instead installed Kitkat 4.4 on their phones.

To be clear, this is a problem with Straight Talk, and not Samsung. You should still be able to root and update.

Your description on how to upgrade a Galaxy S2 to JellyBean 4.3?

Hello. The section where it says download the superoneclick app to your phone - I cannot find it in Play store but I can download it to my PC. Is it OK to run the software from my PC when I get to that stage? Also, do I need to remove the SD card? Thanks

Simplest way for neophyte to upgrade my Galaxy 2 tablet to 4.2 OS?

I see instructions on the page and I probably can follow but no sure. Looks like it will take forever and I don't have the required downloads I should have before I root my tablet and I have never rooted a tablet before. I really do feel confident I can because I can follow step by step instructions I am just hoping there is a less complicated way to get this upgraded!
