First Jelly Bean Custom ROM Appears for the Incredible S

Over the last few months, we’ve reported on a large number of devices across the forums receiving unofficial updates to Jelly Bean. One such report was the HTC Desire S receiving a number of Jelly Bean custom ROMs.

The Desire S‘s big brother, the HTC Incredible S, has now also received a Jelly Bean custom ROM, thanks to XDA Recognized Developer nikhil007mmus. Nik_JellyBean_Evolution is a port from Blindbean, one of the aforementioned Desire S Jelly Bean custom ROMs. The ROM is based on the latest Android 4.1.1 iteration, and uses the CyanogenMod 10 kernel.

There are only a couple of minor known issues with the ROM. The inbuilt tethering app doesn’t work, but can be replaced with a 3rd party equivalent, the front facing camera force closes, and there are intermittent issues with video recording. Given that this device originally shipped with Froyo, having only these three minor bugs is an impressive effort by the developers.

If you want some Jelly Bean sweetness on your Incredible S, head on over to the ROM thread.

Update: It seems as if XDA Recognized Developer nikhil007mmus wasn’t content with creating “just” one Jelly Bean ROM for the Incredible S. Rather, he has created two! You can find the second in the other ROM thread.
