Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Hits AOSP – Let The Custom ROMs Begin

Android 4.1 has officially hit the ground running, finding itself landing in AOSP today courtesy of Jean-Baptiste Queru and friends. What does this mean to you? Well, if your phone is rooted and you have an affinity for flashing custom ROMs, a plethora of Jelly Bean ROMs are soon headed your way now that Jelly Bean can be compiled from source. The CyanogenMod team made it clear they will still be working on a stable ICS release and nightlies for Android 4.1 will be available when they are available — just don’t ask when. Woot woot!

    Someone make one for a nexus S before I have to leave for Europe :P

      Don’t they have computers in Europe?

        He might be time-travelling back to medieval Europe. :)

    Keeping my fingers crossed for a LG G2x ROM soon. :)

      Funny, I was just talking to my brother about that today. I think that phone would rock with Android 4.1 on it. *fingers crossed too*

        The “T-Mobile” (US version) G2x was pretty great with Eagle’s Blood ICS, so I’d imagine so with JB.

    Nice, but I’m still impatiently waiting for CM9 (4.0.x) to go stable.
    The RC really isn’t close to being good enough to replace the slightly too buggy virtuous Inquisition.

    :O hoping for Atrix cm10 kang

    Hopefully a good jellybean rom will come out for my kindle fire soon. ;-)

  • bmg314

    AOKP, please :-)

  • toomuchgame441

    Great next few weeks for my Nexus, it will soon have a stable JB build and I’ll finally have LTE by next week… Yay

  • Ben Baranovsky

    Should I stick with Droid Th3ory’s next ROM or flash CyanogenMod when it’s available? Advantages/disadvantages?

    • bmg314

      Try both…Nandroid is your friend :-)

      • Ben Baranovsky

        Valid point, but I absolutely hate replacing everything on my home screens every time I flash something. Is there a way to have all my apps auto-placed after I use Titanium Backup to restore them? (Without restoring system data. I like my installs to be as clean as possible.)

        • C-Law

          I use nova launcher and it has a backup/restore feature. Just backup before the new rom and restore after all apps are redownloaded. Works great

  • Jared Morgan

    Can’t wait to see the Resurrection Remix SGS2 JB ROM, when the devs for that project get some cycles. Their ICS ROM is particularly well-polished, and uses AROMA for customization upon first install. Very slick!

    Really hoping for an Android 4.1 Rom for Galaxy S3 that maintains its current functionality

    need this badly for Samsung Infuse
