Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7 Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean OTA Update Rolling Out Now!
By on July 11th, 2012

Yesterday, Google pushed Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean to AOSP thus kickstarting development for Jelly Bean based custom ROMs. Today, the company has started rolling out the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update for the GSM variant of the Galaxy Nexus. Back at I/O 2012, Google had announced that it will push the OTA update for the GSM variant of the Galaxy Nexus, Motorola XOOM and the Nexus S sometime in mid-July. The big-G managed to beat itself by a good 4 days, which will definitely be appreciated by a lot of impatient Android users.

Apart from the Galaxy Nexus, the Nexus 7 is also receiving an OTA update to Android 4.1.1. Next in line for an official Jelly Bean OTA update are the Nexus S and the Motorola XOOM, which should hopefully get the update within the next week. Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean makes Android buttery smooth, and puts the OS on par with iOS and WP7 in terms of smoothness.

Oh! and Verizon Galaxy Nexus owners please don’t ask when you will get the Jelly Bean OTA update. Verizon will make sure that the Jelly Bean OTA update for the CDMA Galaxy Nexus is delayed by at least a month or so, all thanks to its “testing”.

    @quasi-caustic @rajesh pandey actually _all_ the galaxy nexuses will get 4.1 first before anything else as the Nexus page on google plus states ”
    Up next for Jelly Bean: ALL Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, Motorola Xoom and of course, Nexus 7, which will ship with Jelly Bean later this month.”
