Jelly Bean AOSP ROM for Verizon Nexus Stock Rooted
Everyone is thrilled with the news that Jelly Bean’s source code has been released to AOSP. In fact, there’s a jump start in the development. As per the reports available, Google Developer Jean-Baptiste Queru, otherwise known as JBQ, has revealed on Google Groups that the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean source code is being made available to the Android Open Source Project. The tagged release is titled as android-4.1.1_r1, and the development branch is named jb-dev.
It is important to note that Google has only released the source code for the software and thus you need not think that you will instantly receive an OTA update for JB. All that will happen somewhere at this month end probably. It seems that Google is quite enthusiastic in rolling the Jelly Bean updates. It seems this latest update should be smoother and better than ICS. Also, the action from the Google’s part should be quick as compared to what happened during ICS roll out.
