Google releases source code for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

in Android, Firmware

Google has today added the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean code to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). Assuming a worst-case scenario in which Sony has not been privy to the PDK would mean that Sony Mobile engineers will now commence working on Android 4.1 for Sony Xperia devices.

It should also mean that custom ROMs based on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean will start appearing soon. CyanogenMod has already said that nightlies of CM10 (based on JB) will up “once we are content with where the ROM is”. CM9 (based on ICS) will continue to be worked on though, the next release will be RC2 before the stable version is released.

    Do you think the Xperia arc will be supported?

    Personally, I think any device that runs ICS can run JB :)
    Google said that JB is nothing but a much more optimized version of ICS :)

    I’d really like to know that too!

    My xperia RAY will be update? there is anyone that answer me

  • Acc. to me SONY should provide STOCK/UNCUSTOMIZED JELLY BEAN for 2011 devices and customized one for 2012 devices…
    It will help them in delivering updates at a really fast rate…, without ignoring the 2011 devices.

    Exactly! JB is nothing but an incremental update to ICS.
    Also, CM10 will support devices with 512MB RAM, if CM9 was being run properly.
    Also, as far as I know the PDK was made available to Sony & in accordance with its commitment to support devices for at least 18 months, the JB update should be provided for the arc as well.

    Its just a matter of ‘when’, now.

  • I’ve actually grown used to their skin. Tried AOKP for weeks, but stock looks much more polished for me.

    There is something right in your words. Some work on UXP, and everything will be very fine.
