Remember the Google Nexus One? The HTC-made phone they said it wouldn’t be upgradeable to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich despite being a Nexus-branded device? That also means the device won’t get Android 4.1 Jelly…
For an Android phone that was released in 2010, it’s nothing short of amazing to see how the Nexus S has made the jump from Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich, before finally resting on Jelly Bean. Then again, we’re talking about a Nexus here.
A member of XDA-developers forum by the handle knzo has released a working build of Android 4.2 for the Nexus S. While there are the usual issues and bugs that currently stop the latest flavor of Jelly Bean from becoming a daily driver, the ROM is deemed stable and usable.
Unfortunately, the Android 4.2 ROM has been taken offline by the maker. The developer said that it’ll be put back up when it’s “ready to be used a daily driver”. Check out the original thread for more details and future announcement of when you can test the ROM out on your Nexus S.
