Thanks! That's good to know! Seems like it'll be awesome on Galaxy Nexus but Nexus S4g is so slow in comparison I'm wondering if Jellybean will just slow down Nexus S even more. What are your thoughts?
Jelly Bean has peformance tweaks that Google refers to as "buttery smooth". I've been running Codename Android for about a month now, and I can say there is a fluidity with the new OS that ICS lacked. It really is smooth, with no stuttering at all. I would think you would see an increase rather than decrease in performance, but then someone who has ran it on the older device would be better able to speak to this.
What is really amazing is how rapidly Google has changed Android from the Froyo days to Jelly Bean. It is like a new OS in so many ways, unlike a certain fruity company who does little tweaks and the masses of iSheep salivate. Hahaha, is it safe to post that on an Android thread?
Hi JL, since peeps here are getting the download now and I did not get the tool kit yet is there anyway possible you could help me get back to stock using my mac?
I'm at work right now without a personal laptop and no access to my cell phone even, so there's little I can do at the moment. I'll see if I can muster up a few minutes to browse around xda for you. I'll post if I find anything.
Just happened to be in android central forums looking for an app to make my soft keys hideable and saw a forum post. Guy said he did manual check and got it so I tried. Downloading now but wishing I was at work with freetoaster cuz I'm bringing it down over 3g. I think everybody is getting it cuz I'm outside New Orleans and the ppl that have been posting in the forums have been from all over the country.
Btw, does anyone here know where I can find the app or .apk that allows the soft keys to be hidden without rooting?
Look for a program called ODIN or wugfresh roottool kit and you can get your phone back to stock! It will lock your boot loader and put the stock OS on it for you. Good luck.
Still no update here. I got the latest 4.0.4 update but not the 4.1.1. I am checking constantly to see if i get it or not. Being on the east cost it might take a moment. I'll update when i get it.
The people that are getting the download could post that file for everyone else. They would need root access then look in the cache directory under the system directory. /system/cache. There should be a file that should be about ~143 MB that should be the Jelly Bean update. You would have to look for it after the download finished but before you ran the update. Just copy the file to the "internal sdcard" for safe keeping. You could upload it to dropbox or some other cloud stroage for other people to download and use at there own risk of corse.
