Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) source code now available


Source code for Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) has been released. We’re sure many of you will be downloading the new Android 4.1.1_r1 files simply to poke around, but CyanogenMod and countless other Android development groups around the globe will be spending countless hours pouring over every last line of code to see what changes will need to be made to integrate Jelly Bean into their existing code base.

Along with Android 4.1, Google has also released the proprietary binaries for the Nexus 7 and Galaxy Nexus. Code for the “Nexus S and Xoom will follow.”

The CyanogenMod team has already predicted a quick turnaround with Android 4.1; let’s just hope they can keep their word. We’re still trying to decide which new Android 4.1 features we’re most excited about. Google Now definitely got the most buzz at I/O, but we think Project Butter will have more impact on users.

What are your thoughts? Will you be waiting for a full CM10 build for your device? Or will you be lurking on your favorite development forum, flashing dozens of half-baked ROMs as soon as they’re posted?

    Excellent! Personally, I’m hoping Slim moves to a 4.1 base.

    • Jimmy_Jo

      Which device are you running Slim on? How is it?

  • Ps3y3Ops

    Darn. I was just getting used to 4.1. Now I have to get used to 4.1.1! LOL!

  • E-man

    I’d rather not have anything flashed and instead have an official 4.1 version on my Verizon Galaxy Nexus. However, since Verizon takes forever and a day to ever update anything, I guess I’ll just mess around with CM10. Can’t wait!

    • Dirge

      Considering Google released the binaries for the Verizon CDMA/LTE version of the GNex…who knows. ;)

      • Slith

        My thoughts exactly!

    “What are your thoughts? Will you be waiting for a full CM10 build for your device?”

    If the CyanogenMod team releases a Rom for the T-Mobile’s Galaxy S II (T989), I’ll definitely try it out.

  • dejay

    I will be flashing every half baked rom until Slim updates, with another Galaxy S in my hands i will be rocking Slim Jelly Bean hopefully soon :) been dreaming of this since they announced ICS lol

  • Richard

    HOORAY.1.1 bring on the ota update!

  • AnthonyRyan

    I’ll be waiting for the OTA for my GSM Galaxy Nexus but for my HTC Sensation 4G I think I’ll put a custom rom fix there is no talk about it getting updated and not taking half a freaking year like it did with ICS for the Sensation.

  • ElvisonD

    Oooooooh Boy….. Oh boy oh boy oh boy…. “Awesomer” Galaxy S3 Roms Coming Up!!! All Aboard!!!!!!!!!

  • redraider133

    And the verizon nexus is back on there, so no more calling it a “fake nexus” Cant wait to see what all the great devs cook up.

  • AceoStar

    AOKP or Bust!

    And now the world knows that Jellybean is made of … sugar.

  • MoSDeeb

    Looking forward to CM10

  • masterpfa

    Great news, I think, if you haven’t got it yet, you will all be pleasantly surprised by Jelly Bean
    Project Butter and my favourite feature Google Now. Although an incremental update (apparently) Jelly Bean has given my GNex a completely new lease of life.

    DEVS we await your master pieces…….

  • h0ruza

    This is just another reason why Google is great; not only do they create wonderful software, they make it open to the public! I am currently working in ATL as a graphic designer, and i need to make a phone/carrier decision. I’m thinking about going with AT&T so that i can access their 4G LTE network here. Will any Jelly Bean ROMs be released before AT&T’s 4.1 update OTA?
