[Update: Rollout Starts Feb. 12th] Motorola Begins Jelly Bean (Android 4.1.2) Rollout For The Electrify M On US Cellular

Update: We've heard from US Cellular that the rollout will begin on February 12th - apparently someone jumped the gun on the update page.

After promising to do so in Q1 2013 back in December, Motorola has officially begun rolling out Android 4.1.2 to the Electrify M on US Cellular. The Electrify M is basically a de-Verizoned RAZR M, so it makes sense that the Electrify's update follows after its DROID kin's.

Google Adds 38 Run And Lift Maps From Major Ski Resorts To Google Maps, But Please Don't Use Them On the Mountain

A non-zero number of Android Police team members enjoy skiiing. Who wouldn't, right? Well, people who get lost for starters. Mountains can be mazes! However, Google did what Google does best and made some sense of the madness. Now you can find guides for 38 different resorts all on your mobile phone.

The runs are color coded by difficulty, as they normally are on the mountain. You can view them with GPS on your mobile phone, or even check them out on the desktop before you hit the snow.

Lying Liars At 1SaleADay Want You To Believe A $180 Refurbished 16GB Nexus 7 Is Actually Worth $260

Update 2: 1SaleADay has now decided that its 16GB Nexus 7 was worth $250 originally, as opposed to the $260 'list price' when we posted this story. At least they're getting closer.

Hey, are you the sort of person that likes getting a bad deal disguised as a good deal on the internet? No? Me neither. But 1SaleADay seems to be looking for the poor souls uninformed enough to believe a refurbished 16GB Nexus 7 was worth $260 new (yes, they couldn't even be bothered to say $250), and that this refurb is an absolute steal at just $190.

Platform Numbers Are In For January 2013: Gingerbread Down To 45.4%, ICS Down (Wha-?) To 29.0%, Jelly Bean Up to 13.6%

It's that time again! We get another glimpse at what the platform distribution numbers are like for Android. If you've been following along, you'll notice there aren't many changes: Gingerbread is still the biggest slice of the pie, Ice Cream Sandwich is second, and the two major versions of Jelly Bean together make up the third largest. 2.3 is down to 45.4% from 47.4% a month ago. That 2% difference seems to have gone overwhelmingly to Jelly Bean which went up to 13.6% from 10% a month ago.

Motorola Atrix 4G Updated To Build 4.5.145–No, It's Not Ice Cream Sandwich

A few weeks ago, Motorola started pushing a soak test update for the Atrix 4G to members of its "feedback network." Naturally, everyone ran wild with speculation – could this be Ice Cream Sandwich? Never mind that Motorola had already made it pretty clear that the first dual-core handset would be officially be stuck on Gingerbread until its dying day. We were all hoping that the company had a change of heart.

[Open Letter] Please Help Yourself To Helping Yourself - Why Google Needs To Rethink The Concept Of Developer Support

The following is a guest post and an open letter to Google from Simply Applied, the makers of apps Sign and CritiCall. It was written by Chris H and Peter V, the developers on the Simply Applied team.

--

To put it plainly, Google’s Developer Support is awful. It’s entirely faceless, avoiding human contact like a recluse living under Uluru in the Australian Outback – its almost enough to long for the days of, “Press 1 for Billing” phone menus.

Nexus 4 Factory Image Returns (JOP40D) To Google Developers Site, Probably Needed A Vacation

Just a quick note to those Nexus 4 owners and developers out there looking for a quick and reliable way to download the official factory image: Google has put it back online. While the image has been readily available in the community during its unexplained absence, it's nice to see that whatever issue prevented Google from posting it has presumably been resolved.

The Android version and build numbers remain unchanged, as do the checksums, so it appears this is the same file that was posted originally.
