Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean arriving for Sprint Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S 4G
The guys over at Android Central have obtained a screenshot from Sprint’s internal systems stating that the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S 4G are finally getting Android Jelly Bean 4.1.1 tomorrow. That’s right, Sprint’s CDMA Nexus devices are getting Jelly Bean nearly two months after their GSM counter parts received the over the air update back on July 10th.
The Galaxy Nexus software version will be FH05 and the Nexus S 4G will have version JRO03R, both are the latest and greatest version of Jelly Bean.
The following internal memo is being sent around Sprint as well:

After Sprint devices get their Jelly Bean update, the last remaining developer devices are Verizon’s Motorola XOOM LTE and the Verizon Galaxy Nexus. The Galaxy Nexus recently received a Jelly Bean ROM leak, making all of us think Verizon’s Nexus update can’t be too far behind.
Congrats Sprint Nexus owners, you’re going to love Jelly Bean.
