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!

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

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

    1. Don’t they have computers in Europe?

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

  2. *unlocks Asus Transformer Prime’s bootloader*

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

    1. 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*

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

  4. 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.

  5. :O hoping for Atrix cm10 kang

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

  7. AOKP, please :-)

  8. 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

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

    1. Try both…Nandroid is your friend :-)

      1. 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.)

        1. 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

  10. 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!

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

  12. need this badly for Samsung Infuse
