Nexus 4 factory images reappear on Google developer site

by: Derek RossFebruary 5, 2013

Nexus devices are full of Android perks. One of the perks of being part of the Nexus family is factory images. Google provides these for Nexus users so that they can easily return their phones or tablets back to an out of box, factory condition should the need ever arise. Thankfully, the Nexus 4 factory image has reappeared on the Google Developers site after mysteriously disappearing shortly after release. Google gave no comment as to why the images were previously pulled. We’re happy to see it return.

If you’re into rooting, running custom ROM’s, or custom kernels on your Nexus 4, it’s always a good idea to [...]

Android 4.2 released to AOSP already, Motorola Xoom and Nexus S not to get Android 4.2 update?

by: Chris SmithNovember 13, 2012
In addition to launching the new Nexus devices today, including the Nexus 4, Nexus 10 and 32GB Nexus 7 flavors, Google has also started rolling out Android 4.2 updates for some of the existing, “older,” Nexus smartphones and tablets. Moreover, the company has also pushed out Android 4.2 to AOSP, which means developers can already tinker with it.

Sony Xperia S AOSP support ends, but project continues

by: Kristofer WoukNovember 8, 2012
Back in August, the Sony Xperia S was added to the list of target devices for the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) as part of an experiment that would hopefully see the device getting Nexus-like update support. As of today, the Xperia S has been taken off the list of target devices, but Sony hopes to continue the project.

by: LucianSeptember 4, 2012
Sony shows good will by publishing Xperia S binaries for the AOSP project. This should make it easier to port stock Android to the Sony Xperia S, and it could be a sign for a Sony Nexus device in the future.

Nexus-like AOSP update support for Sony Xperia S starts as Google experiment

by: Chris SmithAugust 18, 2012

Sony has been less than reliable when it comes to offering timely Android updates for its Android-based devices, but this could all change in the future, as it looks like Google is ready to offer Nexus-like AOSP support to at least one Sony device.

The Sony Xperia S is the lucky fellow that will receive Nexus-like treatment and we’re certainly intrigued by the move. What does it mean for the Android business? Will we see other Sony and non-Sony devices get the same support for Google?

I’m sure that neither carriers nor device makers would be entirely happy to let customers fetch their Android updates directly from Google, but should [...]

Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean (AOSP) available, at least for the international GT-I9300 version

by: Chris SmithJuly 31, 2012

Those of you that can’t wait to experience Google’s latest mobile OS version, Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, on Samsung’s latest flagship handset, the Galaxy S3, should know that the Jelly Bean AOSP port is already available for the international version of the Galaxy S3 version, the GT-I9300 model.

AOSP is short for Android Open Source Project, which means the Jelly Bean version developed for the Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 model is based on the Jelly Bean open source code, and therefore does not include any custom user interfaces or crapware apps.

All the hard work has been performed by xda-developers recognized member Faryaab, and there’s a [...]
