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. If you want to compulsively check for it, though, you can do so in Settings.

We're still waiting to see if the Nexus S 4G will also get the promised Jelly Bean update, as we'd also heard.

Today, a software update began rolling out for the Galaxy Note in Germany. The primary changes are cosmetic, it seems, to bring the phone more in line with the look and feel of the Galaxy Note II. The menu interface has been updated to be more consistent, and Samsung has also added a brand new Gallery that looks fantastic.

The gallery has some impressive new UI flair.

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:

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

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.

Owners of Sprint's One X-inspired EVO 4G LTE may be interested to know that they can expect a minor software update to begin rolling out over the air today. The update, which carries software build 2.13.651.1, brings the device up to Android 4.0.4 with Sense 4.1 on top, meaning the menu bar fix the HTC One X got a few weeks ago has arrived, among other things.

The update's other offerings include a fix for random browser closes, a minor Bluetooth fix, an updated version of both Google Wallet and Sprint's Visual Voicemail, and an LTE scanning improvement that should help users better find Sprint's burgeoning 4G network.

A rather innocuous OTA update (T989UVLH1) for T-Mobile's Galaxy S II was announced today, with a 2-line changelog that, on the surface, probably won't excite anyone:

Improvements

  • ISIS/NFC update
  • Bug fixes

That's the whole thing. But that little Isis mention is easy to overlook - this is the first phone to officially indicate (if indirectly) support for the carrier-backed mobile payment system. Unfortunately, we don't have a T-Mobile Galaxy S II in order to check if this update actually brings the Isis app itself, or is merely in preparation for support.

Samsung has been slowly but surely pushing Ice Cream Sandwich to last year's Galaxy Tab series. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi was the most recent Tab in the series to get the update here in the U.S. and, considering the devices are nearly identical, it left owners of the Tab 8.9 wondering where their update was.

Good news, Tab 8.9 Wi-Fi owners: the wait is over. The 313.96MB update just started rolling out in the U.S.

If you have a Gingerbread phone, you want ICS. There's no arguing that fact. Even if you're happy with Gingerbread and have never used ICS before, you may not realize it, but you still want it.

Unfortunately for Stratosphere owners, it doesn't looks like Samsung wants to give you the full ICS experience; instead, they want to put Ice Cream Sandwich all over Gingerbread. Kind of like the "Galaxy S Suite" that was to bring some of the best features from ICS to GB, the Stratosphere is getting a cosmetic (and perhaps slightly functional) update that brings face unlock, a better app tray, new incoming call GUI, and a photo editor.

After ASUS' US-bound Transformer Pad 300 (TF300) got its taste of Jelly Bean OTA goodness – and subsequent full-fledged firmware download – owners of the tablet's international (or WW) variant were stuck furiously pressing "software update" in hopes of getting their own OTA. Well, it looks like ASUS has made dreams come true, at least across Europe. Just earlier today, ASUS UK officially put users on the lookout via Twitter:

Keeping true to its reputation for timely updates, ASUS pushed out an official Jelly Bean OTA update to lucky Transformer Pad TF300 owners in North America last Saturday after a quick tease. Now, under a week later, it looks like ASUS has provided the full firmware for download directly from its support site.

The download, which those who didn't receive the OTA (due to an unlocked bootloader or otherwise) can use to get to ASUS' clean Jelly Bean experience, weighs a hefty 438MB and is meant only for users of the US version of the TF300.
