Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for the GSM Galaxy Nexus Ripped

Google I/O is an exciting time for members of the Android development community. For those who don’t know, we’re here in San Francisco, bringing you the most relevant and interesting highlights from the event! New Android firmware releases, product unveilings, and cool gadgets are just some of the many things that are let loose at the infamous conference. Now we have another cool thing to add to the list of items from Google I/O: the first Jelly Bean release for the GSM “Takju” Galaxy Nexus!

That’s right, earlier today at the conference attendees who were given a GSM Galaxy Nexus were treated to an OTA (Over The Air) update to Google’s latest Android firmware, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Thanks to XDA Forum Member PTzero, conference attendees are not the only ones who can access this release. PTzero went ahead and posted it online for everyone to enjoy. With this initial release, it’s only a matter of time before the source code for Jelly Bean is published and custom ROM’s begin appearing.

Of note is the fact that this is for “Takju” equipped GSM devices, and has not yet been confirmed to be functioning on “Yakju” devices. However, we do not believe there to be hardware differences between the devices. So if you’re feeling ready, head on over to the original thread and give this a go. Let us know how it tastes in the comments section below.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
