Back in July, Google made available the stock Jelly Bean images for a couple of the Nexus S variants, as well as the GSM Galaxy Nexus, and Nexus 7. Today, the build for the global Nexus S (soja) got updated to Android 4.1.1 (JRO03L), and the Nexus S 4G (sojas) Jelly Bean 4.1.1 image (JRO03R) made its way to Google's image download site, as well.


Unfortunately, there's still no sign of Jelly Bean showing up for the Korean version of the Nexus S (or the LTE Galaxy Nexii, for that matter). Sorry, guys - looks like we'll have to keep waiting for those.

    FWIW, Korean version users can safely flash the JellyBean binaries i9023

    I got a nexus device specifically so I wouldn't have to wait for updates. Obviously Verizon had other plans. Even if T-Mobile has worse coverage I am switching when my contract is up. Wifi calling and having a gsm nexus device is worth more to me.

    The JRO03L build for soju (i9023) was the OTA that was released for Vodafone Australia. It resolved an issue where the notification curtain didn't say 'Emergency calls only' when no SIM card is present in the device. This is a regulatory requirement in Australia.

    Is this for stock nexus s 4g devices? If so, does it still need to be unlocked?

      These are stock factory images - it doesn't matter what you run currently - you can flash those even if your phone's not booting.

    I wonder what's the difference between the new JRO03L and the JRO03E on my I9023.

    will this come on OTA or do i have to flash it manually?

  • Kaustubh Ghanekar

    Does that mean Google fixed no media in SD Card problem?
