Android 4.1.1 on the HSPA+ version of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus

The Samsung GALAXY Nexus is getting Android 4.1.1 Tuesday and Wednesday. Hurray! Uh, not so fast. The update is for those units of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus that run on HSPA+ which means the international model and the one being sold in the Google Play Store. Verizon's LTE version? Not quite yet. The update brings the Samsung GALAXY Nexus to Jelly Bean, Android 4.1.1 and software build JRO03C. This is the same exact build being sent out to those lucky Google I/O members who came back from the convention with a Google Nexus 7 tablet.

Those with the HSPA+ version of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus and have updated the OS say that local search remains on the phone thanks to the Federal Appeals Courts stay of Judge Koh's injunction. What does disappear with the 4.1.1 update is compatibility with the Adobe Flash Player. According to Google, those with the CDMA/LTE version of the phone shouldn't feel too jealous as Google says they are next on the list to receive the update along with users of the Google Nexus S and the Motorola XOOM tablet.

Not necessarily. I thought my Galaxy S2 would fly with ICS when really its about the same.

How can they survive without google's help, when they are running google's OS? Just a bit perplexed about that statement

Since vita under a carrier and not unlocked, it's "Verizon Nexus." Sucks that they have to wait. But why wait when the point of getting a Nexus is to root it as soon as you get it?

Sadly, it has become a verizon nexus. I bought my Cdma galaxy nexus believing it was a true nexus, but as I learned more about verizon and the tech world I realized it was not. The carriers have used their power to delay updates that could hurt them at all. That is the main thing that I respect in apple, that they fought the carriers. Apple controlled the Iphone not att or vzw. Even though I love google and am a phandroid, I am disappointed by their failure to use their power to create a true nexus through vzw.

I got ICS on my Galaxy S II (AT&T) the day before Google I/O. T-Mobile users already had it and Sprint is apparently getting it tomorrow (July 12th). We'll see about JB...I certainly doubt it.

There's no reason it shouldn't, the specs on the S2 are better than the GNex. I would be surprised if it did get JB though, carriers are barely paying attention to the S2 right now, let alone a year from now.

Maybe XDA or AOKP will keep up with it, hopefully anyway.
