AOSP 4.1.1 released: Developers, start your engines!

by: Derek RossJuly 9, 2012

Android Open Source Project lead Jean-Baptiste Queru announced on the official Android Building Group that Android 4.1.1, Jelly Bean has been released to AOSP. The release will be tagged as android-4.1.1_r1 in AOSP, a slight bump in version number from the Google I/O 2012 developer preview release. The “.1” most likely represents a few last minute bug fixes or changes. The Android 4.1.1 binaries (JRO03C) have also been released for the GSM Galaxy Nexus (maguro), Verizon Galaxy Nexus (toro),  and new Nexus 7 (grouper). The Nexus S and the Motorola Xoom will soon follow. The full Jelly Bean source code can be download once it’s done uploading and replicating. JBQ estimates this will be around 9PM EST. Once complete, developers can begin downloading here.

What’s this mean for those that love to flash custom ROMs? First, be patient. It takes a long time to download and build Android. Second, amazing development teams such as CyanogenMod are already on the job. Later tonight, they’ll begin doing what they do best, coding Android. We won’t see any official CM10 nightly builds just yet, so hold your horses.

With that said, just because the CM is working on merging their changes into the Jelly Bean source, doesn’t mean that we won’t seen official, stock AOSP builds for the listed devices soon. The Android community never ceases to amaze us, we might just see a few ROMs pop up late tonight or early tomorrow morning. Keep your fingers crossed.

        You’ll have to use the GPS, NFC and Camera binaries from 4.0.4 I believe. All other binaries are 4.1.1 and released on Google’s site.

        Let me know when your ROM is done, if it’s ‘vanilla’ I’ll flash it :)

    I’m already on a cm10 rom and i have an Og Evo 4g not the Lte, but its just a preview of whats to come but the only bugs and issues are the obvious no 4g, Front facing camera, and somewhat sluggish UI.
