Sprint Nexus S 4G Is Even More Officially Getting Jelly Bean Now, According To Documents In Sprint Forums

There may have been a bit of a false start recently, when a Sprint employee took to the community forums to announce that the rollout of Jelly Bean for the Nexus S had begun. Maybe the rep confused the Nexus S for the Galaxy Nexus, as we hadn't heard any reports that users had received the OTA for the older of the two Nexii. Today, though, Sprint has posted in its forums details on the upgrade, including a release date of today, September 11th.

[How-To] Download And Manually Install The Jelly Bean Update (Build FH05) For The Sprint Galaxy Nexus

The Jelly Bean update started rolling out to the Sprint variant of the Galaxy Nexus three short days ago, but if you still haven't gotten it or are rooted and have been waiting to install it manually, you can now grab it directly from Google's servers.

Before flashing this, a couple of things need to be in order:

  • You must be on the latest Sprint OTA (FG01).
  • You must be running a custom recovery, have an unlocked bootloader with the stock recovery, or be rooted with a stock/locked device.

Confirmed: Sprint Galaxy Nexus Receiving Jelly Bean Update Today, September 6th

As was reported yesterday, it looks like the Sprint Galaxy Nexus will, in fact, be receiving its upgrade to Jelly Bean. Finally. According to documents on Sprint's support page, the JRO03R build starts rolling out today. It looks like it will be an OTA update.

Sprint Galaxy Nexus And Nexus S 4G Variants Could Receive Jelly Bean Update As Soon As September 6th

CDMA-based Nexuses (Nexii?) tend to get the short end of the stick when it comes to timely updates. The promise of the Nexus is that you'll always have the latest Android experience just the way Google imagines it. While the international version of the Galaxy Nexus has had Jelly Bean for a while, Sprint's been left in the cold. Until, tomorrow, September 6th, if Android Central's source is correct.

Here's the email that a tipster sent in:

To Sprint Business Sales

September 5, 2012

Software updates for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (L700) and Nexus S 4G will be available beginning Thursday, 9.6.12.

[Download] Jelly Bean Test Build (JRO03O) Available For The Verizon Galaxy Nexus

While the GSM Galaxy Nexus has been running Jelly Bean since Google I/O, there hasn't been a single word of the update for the Verizon Nexus. Until now.

Last night, one lucky XDA member received a system update on his phone to install build JRO03O, which is the newest Jelly Bean build we've heard of.

It's pretty evident that this is just a test build, as there's nary a word about the update anywhere else; even Verizon's support channel is void of any info.

The Wall Street Journal reports that a Seoul court found both Apple and Samsung in violation of each other's patents, with the former violating two of Samsung's patents and the latter violating one of Apple's.

[Update: CM9 Stable For All Devices Coming Tonight] GSM Galaxy Nexus (Maguro) Becomes The First Device To Reach CM9 Stable Release

Update: A post just hit the CM blog verifying what we all suspected: CM9 Stable for all devices will be rolling out tonight. As previously mentioned, this marks the end of development (aside from bug fixes) for CM9 so the team can focus on CM10.

The post also notes that the Maguro build that hit last night actually went up by mistake and shouldn't have been posted until tonight. As a result, a new build (9.0.0.1) will go live with the rest of the stable releases tonight.

Jelly Bean Factory Images Are Now Available For Several Nexus Devices, Including GSM Galaxy Nexii And Nexus 7

The time has come friends. Factory images are now available for several Nexus devices. The current factory image (JRO03[C-E] depending on the device) is available for most Nexus S variants, though the Korean and Sprint versions are conspicuously absent. Similarly, the Verizon-branded Galaxy Nexus is still off the list, but all other Galaxy Nexus versions are accounted for. And, of course, the carrier-less Nexus 7's factory image is available.

For those who prefer bullet points, here are the devices with factory images available as well as the build number for each:

 

  • Nexus S (soju): Android 4.1.1 (JRO03E)
  • Nexus S (sojua): Android 4.1.1 (JRO03E)

  • Galaxy Nexus (takju): Android 4.1.1 (JRO03C)
  • Nexus 7 (nakasi): Android 4.1.1 (JRO03D)

The Galaxy Nexus, meanwhile, will be bumped up to IMM76K.L700FG01.

Editorial: Samsung Has Given Up On Fighting Apple's Unified Search Patent - Where Do We Go From Here, Google?

Update: It appears Samsung sent out the update removing universal search from international Galaxy S III's mistakenly. I'd say the point still stands for the United States, though.

On December 1, 2004, a patent was filed in the United States naming Apple as asignee (owner). Its title is "Universal interface for retrieval of information in a computer system." This patent, which you can find here, has become Apple's most effective weapon in its fight to see Android dubbed an iOS "ripoff" by courts and consumers.
