The Android team over at Google has had a busy month. After rolling out the Jelly Bean OTA update for the Galaxy Nexus and pushing its source code to AOSP, the team rolled out a minor OTA update for the Nexus 7. After this, they rolled out the Jelly Bean update for the Nexus S and the Motorola XOOM.
Last night, the Android team at Google performed the last step of a successful Jelly Bean roll-out by uploading the stock Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean factory images for the Nexus 7, Nexus S and the GSM Galaxy Nexus, before probably going on a long holiday. These stock Jelly Bean factory images are handy for developers or advanced users, when a bad custom ROM installation leaves them recovery-less.
Sadly, the factory images are not available for the CDMA variants of the Nexus S (Sprint) and the Galaxy Nexus (Verizon) thanks to some proprietary CDMA blobs. Worse, Nexus S 4G and Verizon Galaxy Nexus owners need to wait for at least a few more weeks before they get the Jelly Bean update on their handset, all thanks to their operator’s rigorous ‘testing’.
The factory images for the Nexus S, Nexus 7 and the Galaxy Nexus can be downloaded from here.
