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. This comes a mere two weeks after Google unveiled the new operating system during the first day’s keynote at Google I/O 2012.
While there have been various ports of Google’s latest that have appeared throughout the forums on various devices, full source code release gives developers the tools they need to get cracking on crafting truly fantastic Jelly Bean releases. However, we must ask that users refrain from harassing their favorite developers about when the source-built goods will arrive.
Get in on the discussion in our forums and in the official Google Groups thread. If you’re a ROM developer, fire up that Internet connection and download the source! And if you’re looking to build on a Nexus device, make sure to head to the Google Developers page for the required binaries.

Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...
