by: Kristofer WoukNovember 27, 2012
Android 4.2.1 started rolling out earlier today to the Nexus 4, 7 and 10. If all you want to do is use your device, that's fine. Those who want to dig deep into the code will be happy to know that now the source code for Android 4.2.1 is available as part of the Android Open Source Project (AOSP).

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.

Sony publishes Xperia S binaries to help with the AOSP “experiment”

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 [...]

Jelly Bean AOSP ROM available now for the Google Nexus S

by: Ankit BanerjeeJuly 16, 2012

Even though a lot of users are still waiting for an official update to Android 4.0, the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS is the new kid in town that everyone wants to hang out with. With the current track record of the slow ICS rollout by device manufacturers and carriers, we can only hope and pray to the Android gods that the JB update will be available a lot sooner.

Until then, the first devices to receive the update to the latest iteration of the Android OS will be the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the Google Nexus S, and the Motorola Xoom tablet. If you own a Galaxy Nexus S and can’t wait for the official update, XDA Senior Member legolas93 has the solution for [...]

Acer Iconia A500 gets an alpha Jelly Bean AOSP ROM

by: Derek RossJuly 15, 2012

Usually some of the first devices built from Android source (AOSP) fall to the likes of Nexus devices. Thankfully, developers don’t always play by those rules. Shortly after the source code for Jelly Bean 4.1.1 was released, the Acer Iconia A500 received a very nice alpha build of Jelly Bean. Over the last few days, XDA Developer randomblame and his team have been tweaking and hacking away at their source built beauty and so far have nearly everything working. For some, this early alpha build may even be sufficient as a daily driver (if you’re into a bug or two while running the latest and great version of Android). I don’t know about you, but that describes [...]

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. [...]
