This just in from Google I/O: A system dump of Jelly Bean from a GSM Galaxy Nexus. You can run over to RootzWiki right now and grab yourself a copy. 

Somewhere, deep in this zip file, are all the goodies we saw today at I/O. Expect bits from this to be chopped, ported, and crammed into existing devices shortly.

I'm going to get cracking on an emulator setup for a Jelly Bean edition of Getting To Know Android. Expect lots of pictures.

Who's excited?

Ron loves everything related to technology, design, and Google. He always wants to talk about "the big picture" and what's next for Android, and he's not afraid to get knee-deep in an APK for some details. Expect a good eye for detail, lots of research, and some lamenting about how something isn't designed well enough.

    Let me know when I can run it on my Nexus and then I'll be interested.

      Done. Already running it. Sooooo smooth and enough changes to be a major release

        How did you do it? Do you prefer us to change it??

        What metal metali said.... how u do dat?!!

    Is this enough to get porting to other devices?  I don't think so, but after what I saw today, I have to hold on to the slimmest hope.

    I'm really excited for when Verizon releases the update for the Galaxy Nexus in the next 5-6 months!

    Looking forward to your screenshots and UI critique Ron.

    I thought Google's formatting on their "wiki" search cards looked fantastic.

    And the best news, large tablets do get to keep a tablet UI!

    This is very exciting. Couldn't wait to download this. I pulled the play store from this and it turns out to be a new version 3.7.11. If anyone is interested I posted it here:

    Anyone got their hands on a Google Now APK? Or possibly a way to port it to my Gingerbread phone?
