One of the perks of being a Nexus device includes Google provided, factory restoration images. Today, Google has made Android Jelly Bean 4.1.1 (JRO03L) available for the global variant of the Nexus S (soju) as…
Following the release of Android 4.1.2 JZ054K factory images for the Nexus 7, as well as for the “takju” and “yakju” variant of Galaxy Nexus a few days ago, Google has now posted the factory image for the updated pure Jelly Bean firmware for the “soju” variant of the Nexus S.
This is the kind of special treatment that makes it hard not to go with a Nexus device now and in the future. Yes, even the Nexus on Verizon – though it seems to be a bit behind the curve. We’re sure it too will get its latest factory image uploaded soon enough.
In addition to the Jelly Bean factory images, Google has also posted the IAN67K factory image for the unreleased Nexus Q. The orb-shaped media streamer may not have seen the light of day yet after it was indefinitely pushed back by Google, but remember that hundreds of attendees of the company’s last big event already have the Q. The ICS factory image will come in handy should some tinkerers got too carried away with their mod attempt.
You can get the factory images at the usual place below.
