Android 4.1 ‘Jellybean’ OTA upgrade for Nexus S
Well that was quick. Google has just officially announced that the latest version of the Android 4.1 OS [Jellybean] is now available for download as an OTA (over-the-air) update on several Nexus S phones.
This includes the Nexus S models from several carriers [mainly T-mo, AT&T and Verizon] but some users have already reported that their GSM Nexi (international variant) also got sugarcoated by the ‘sweet concoction’ courtesy of the internet search giant.
No specific dates were revealed by Google regarding the OTA update’s availability worldwide but If some of you happen to own an international variant of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and can no longer wait for the Jellybean goodness, It’s not really that hard to root your phones. All you guys have to do is follow the rooting procedure posted here (for ICS users only) and after doing so, you can easily flash the firmware package via ClockworkMod — which you can download from here, make sure to choose the right rom to download and that you know all the risks and problems that may arise upon rooting.
