Android 4.1 Jelly Bean hits AOSP today
posted by Michael H. / Jul 09, 2012, 7:28 PM
If you're part of the Android mod community, or just a dev who likes to play around with new stuff, you'd better get ready because Google is about to release the source code for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean into the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) repository.
The news was let out by AOSP guru Jean-Baptiste Queru at just before 7PM EST today (about an hour before this posting.) JPQ said that the source code will be released today, and will be listed under the name "android-4.1.1_r1". There were some "replication delays", so we're to expect the code to hit the repo at around 9PM EST (6PM PST according to JPQ).
The binaries for the Nexus 7 and Galaxy Nexus (GSM and CDMA) are already available, while the binaries for the XOOM and Nexus S (GSM and CDMA) are coming soon.
Unfortunately, JPQ doesn't have any info on OTA releases for the Jelly Bean updates, but this would make it seem like they are on track for release this month as expected.

I dare to dream that even the Verizon update can come at a reasonable time if 4.1 is already on AOSP. Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't this mean that this means that the software is ready and would merely need approval?

That is true, but as we saw with 4.0.4, that carrier testing and approval could take as long as 2-3 months.

yea my guess is 2 months before any updates are announced and probably fall/xmas at the earliest for phones to ship with it. that said.. I bet XDA has a working port in... ooh.... about now... they cyanogen mod said they will be doing the update immediately and pushing out CM11 (or was it 10? ) as soon as its ready to rock.

I already have Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The Google Now is super sweet & I can't wait until the FULL AOSP 4.1.1 hits. They are saying the next release of Jelly Belly ROM which is 2.7 will be the FULL AOSP ROM. That should be released tonight or tomorrow at best. Thank you root community.
