Google Releases Android 4.1 Source Code To AOSP

By 09:27 Wed, 14 Jul 2021 Comments

Google developer Jean-Baptiste Queru, also known as JBQ, has announced on Google Groups that Google is now releasing the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean source code to Android Open Source Project (AOSP).

The name of the tagged release is android-4.1.1_r1 and the name of the development branch is jb-dev. The binaries are currently being released for the Nexus 7 and the Galaxy Nexus but will be released for the Nexus S and the Motorola Xoom shortly.

What this means to you is that if you rely on someone like CyanogenMod for your Android ROMs then you can expect a Jelly Bean based Read-Only Memory (ROM) very soon as the developers can now start their work on it, now that they have the source code.

Do note that Google is only uploading the source code for now and this does not mean that you will acquire the Android 4.1 OTA update to your Nexus device just yet. That is still slated for a mid-July release and will be followed by uploading of the factory images on Google's site.
