Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Arrives For Nexus S [Download]


Looks like Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean has finally arrived for the Nexus S… in Pakistan. Our Android brothers and sisters in Asia are the first to receive the update over-the-air as one user has reported over on XDA. This is a good sign the 114MB update could soon arrive in other parts of the globe. If you don’t feel like waiting, you can download and apply the JRO03E update directly via the Google link below. Exciting stuff!

Thanks, Jesus!

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. You meant of the globe ha-ha. You said glove

  2. That’s pretty great it’s still being supported

  3. Hopefully the Sprint Nexus S doesn’t get screwed for several months…again.

  4. So how would I install that off the Google download link to my phone? I assume move some files into the phone ?

    1. Download the file, rename it using a file explorer (I recommend super manager 3.0 if you don’t already have one) to “update.zip” and move it to the main sd card partition, which means getting it out of any folders it’s in. Then turn off the phone and hold volume up+power to get into the bootloader. From there, use the volume and power buttons to get into the stock recovery, and in there hold volume up+power again (there’s a certain order you have to hold them in, but I forgot it, so just try both combinations; nothing bad will happen). When the menu appears, select “apply update from .zip” (not an exact quote, but you get the idea) and wait. Enjoy! Oh, and I should warn you: since I assume you haven’t rooted your phone, chances are you haven’t got a nandroid backup, which means you’ve got no way to fix your phone in the unlikely event something goes wrong (I’m not responsible for your phone or any potential problems caused by my instructions, just saying), so you should look into that.

  5. If this old Nexus gets it before my Verizon GNex I’m gonna be piiiiised

  6. I have galaxy S2 would we get the Jelly Bean update?

    1. One day… one day. *pats back*

      1. haha

        1. I know how this guy feels. I keep telling myself to buy a Nexus phone but each time one comes out it’s a serious hardware letdown compared to what else is on the market. So I’m forced to choose between hardware and software. Hardware wins every time. And I’m thereforecondemned to a world of waiting and half-working alpha ROMs provided by the devs over at XDA, whenever Google releases an update and my OEM hasn’t done anything with it yet.
          Fingers crossed Samsung gets a JB update out soon for the S3!

  7. As Verizon tells American Bionic owners to give us your money and eat poo……

  12. How is the performance of Jelly Bean on Nexus S? Last time I updated my Nex with ICS and it killed my phone’s battery life and speed.. Does Jelly Bean make it worse?
