  • The big day has come and coders will be happy to know that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean just got released in open source code form today. Announced back at Google I/O 2012, at the end of June, the new release has behind it the Project Butter, that makes Android run as smooth as butter.

    It also integrates a kickass new voice assistant, that surpasses Siri in precision and speed. The 4.1 ROM has been leaked for a while now, after being pushed to Galaxy Nexus owners present at I/O. Obviously the unofficial ROMs based on that don’t work very well, but now they will, as we have the official code available. Jean-Baptiste Queru announced that the Android 4.1 source code, plus the binaries for Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7 are now available, meaning that custom ROM makers such as Cyanogen can start working on their fresh software.

    This means that CyanogenMod 10 is incoming and we should get it before the summer is out… probably. Manufacturers are not influenced by this news too much, since they already have a PDF of the new software from Google. Indie developers are the ones interested here, since they can support more devices in the future. Expect more ROMs and leaks for many different devices over the next weeks!
