T-Mobile Nexus S Users Be On The Lookout For Jelly Bean

T-Mobile customers using a Nexus S device should be on the lookout for a possible Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update. We’re urging a bit of patience as so far this news extends only to Nexus S devices overseas and Google has said nothing about US availability for any update today. However, Vodafone Australia is reporting the update for their customers will out sometime around 1:00pm AEST July 19th, which is actually July 18th in the US and it translates to around 11:00pm eastern.

On a similar note, SFR in France is also reporting the Jelly Bean update for Nexus S customers should begin arriving sometime on July 18th. So, we’re hopeful that today may be the day, but this wouldn’t be the first time a carrier got a software update timeframe wrong, so a little patience is definitely required now.

For now, we’re taking this with a grain of salt until we can find something a little more concrete on US availability. If anyone gets an alert that a software update is available, make sure to scream it from the mountaintops.

    Hells ya! Nexus rocks! No update here yet in Los Angeles

    I’ll have to pull mine out of the drawer to check!  Seriously, maybe Jellybean will make my Nexus S worth using again.  ICS nearly put the Nexus S on ice (pun intended).

    All you have to do is go to to Settings>Apps>Google Service Framework>Clear Data and boom check for update and you will have the option to update to jellybean. worked for me

      I’m confused. Is Google Service Framework in your apps list?

      • Sironry

        yes it should be in the section where it says ALL apps

        • Omar

          Found it. Thanks: )

    • Soroushmohammadi

      So I cleared the data and now I go on about/check for updates/?

    • Fish

      I tried and no go. Even though I got mine the day it was released I think my IMEI number is quite high so I get the updates quite a bit late during their release…

    • ludwigmace

      Yes!  I had to repeat a few times but it worked.  Updated over wifi.

    Beware if you connect to an Enterprise Wireless network that uses WPA w/TLS or PEAP, apparently they don’t work in any device that is running Jellybean.

    Is it really that difficult for Google to announce a concrete date? Why do they constantly think it is ok to never communicate with their customers? I really want to know the answer to this. It is so baffling.

    • NOWstfu

      You’re not that important, so quit whining…

      • wakkoman

        Stupid response from a stupid person. You’re not that special, so quit trying….

    I received my 4.1 update for my Galaxy Nexus S 3 days ago!

  • Adla

    Do you have to be on stock rom to receive jelly bean?

  • SpikeD

  • JChapman

    I just received the Jelly Bean update for my T-Mobile Nexus S.  There was a note that said “Via Wi-Fi only until July 21″.
