The newest sets of binaries for Nexus devices have been published and are now available to download on Google's Nexus drivers page. This new batch of binaries is for Android 4.1.1 build JRO03R, and covers basically all Nexus phones and tablets:

  • Nexus S (crepso)
  • Nexus S 4G (crespo4g)
  • Motorola XOOM  Wi-Fi (wingray)
  • Galaxy Nexus GSM (maguro)
  • Galaxy Nexus LTE (toro)
  • Nexus 7 (grouper)

According to JBQ, the most noteworthy change here is that the new binaries for the Nexus 7 "support GPS, and include a high-precision touchscreen firmware."

Also available as of today is the Android 4.1.1 (JRO030) factory image for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus (toro). With its arrival, only the factory JB image for the Korean Nexus S is still missing.

While this may not mean much for the bulk of us, it's good things for developers and tinkerers alike. Hit the appropriate link below to grab the download.

    Wil this maybe rid of the nexus 7 touchscreen issues? - Hopefully

    • Goldenpins

      settings,keyboard, advanced and turn off next word prediction.. Haven't had touch screen issues since. I only did this with the Nexus 7 but kept the Galaxy Nexus like normal.

    "With its arrival, only the factory JB image for the Korean Nexus S is still missing." Ummm toroplus?

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      toroplus isn't maintained by Google's Nexus page, it's MIA altogether.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Cameron Summerson

      Toroplus isn't listed on the factory image page in the first place.

      yea I would love to find the owner of the device at Sprint and ask him why not. when I purchased it on sprint I assumed it would be included... and well... that was stupid I guess

  • PIL

    Are these of any use for owners of the respective devices? I mean, it is downloaded somehow to the nexus 7 or the gnex (noob question)?

    • skinien

      Unless you know how to extract the binaries and compile AOSP, I'm afraid not.

      • AndrewNeo

        The factory image for toro means you can flash your ROM back to stock without upgrading from ICS first.

        • skinien

          Correct. I assumed he was talking about the binaries.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Well, the factory images are very much usable, but the drivers are only needed if you compile ROMs.

      • PIL

        Yes I meant the binaries. Thanks!

    so could I just flash the jelly bean (toro) image onto my galaxy nexus (vzw, toro) and it would update me to jb??

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      That's the idea, yeah.

    • Andromedo

      Yes. It will completely wipe your phone, though.

    So other that compile or get an AOSP rom there is no way to get the updated binaries in my Nexus 7? Are Not supposed to be released via an OTA update or something?

    • blunden

      If I were to make a qualified guess I think the binaries are the same as before. The difference is that Google is now legally allowed to distribute more of the drivers. Before you had to rip them out of a stock rom.

  • blunden

    The GSM Galaxy Nexus (maguro) props are the same as the previous few versions. I have not checked the others.

    • blunden

      Hmm, maybe not for the N7 in this case. It's normally the case though.

  • Tim

    Does this mean that there will be new Radios with these updated JRO03R binaries?

  • Deltaechoe

    Time to get playing

  • KreeTerry

    Anyone thinking of reverting back to stock for the new release? Been bouncing between paranoid android, cm, and aokp on my grouper and toro. Havent ran stock since i got my toro in january, never ran stock on my grouper.
