Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Code Released To Android Open Source Project

Want to take a look at the Android 4.1 source code? Good news, now you can as Google releases the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) for everyone to look at it, check, dissect, and enjoy. Word came from Android Open Source Project guru Jean-Baptiste Queru, that the company has released binaries for the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7, with the code for the Nexus S and Motorola Xoom to follow. The release is being label as Android-4.1.1_r1 in AOSP and we hope that this means that factory images for the above mentioned devices will come out after their OTA updates launch.

The most important part of this story though is the likelihood that we’ll see a lot of Android ROMs coming our way, hopefully for as many devices as we can imagine. Now the real fun begins for the Android modding community.

For their part in the Android community, the CyanogenMod team is already downloading the code to familiarize themselves with the source code so they can begin work on ROMs. Let the custom ROMs cometh.

        I’m surprised too.  I’ll never buy another phone that isn’t a Nexus.  

        • ChristianMcC

          Definitely

          The newest phones have got to be upgraded wouldn’t you think? Google must tell them that the next version is in the works which would give them a head start on optimization?

    soon on Vibrant coming from xda forums

    • Jay Sandora

      For real? I still have my Vibrant as my primary phone, and would LOVE to try out JB on this.  I didn’t think the hardware would be able to run it, though.

      Still going to upgrade to either the Nexus or SGS3 soon, but in the meantime, would be nice to play with JB a bit on the Vibrant.

  • jelliottz

    The I/O version of JB is great on the GNex. I can’t wait to see if they’ve added any other surprises in the final release. Now take AOSP JB + Custom ROM makers + Linaro mods and we should see some crazy performance.

    • J-Hop2o6

       They said it was a minor difference between I/O leak and Final. I believe final is  4.1.1

    Someone has already made a port for the Vibrant LOL http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1748515

    This is kind of off-topic for this thread (although it is open-source related), but as it’s unlikely to be ON-topic any time soon, well…

    Wilma Flintstone, I saw https://lwn.net/Articles/505880/ and thought of you!

      Also, how did you know I was a MeeGo advocate?  Were you one of the people back then with me and my MeeGo rants?  Lol

      • Mark

        Yes, although I’ve never registered a permanent name here I do recall a time (probably back when I had first gotten my CLIQ) that you hardly posted here without mentioning MeeGo.

      • None

        I think we ALL know how much you love(d) MeeGo!  You are kind legendary on this blog.
