Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Source Code Released to AOSP!
The time we have all been waiting for is finally upon us. As announced by Android’s “Open-Source Tech Dude” Jean-Baptiste Queru, source code for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has been released to the Android Open Source Project.

And if you’re looking to build on a Nexus device, make sure to head to the Google Developers page for the required binaries.[Thanks to XDA Recognized Developers febycv and cdesai for the tip!]
