International Galaxy S III Gets Jelly Bean, the List Keeps Growing!

It seems the list of devices receiving Jelly Bean ports is growing by the second. The GSM Galaxy Nexus has already received an official version, while the international HTC One X has received a port.

Not to be outdone, the Samsung Galaxy SIII i9300 has received it’s own intial Jelly Bean port thanks to XDA Recognized Developer faryaab. So far the ROM has:

What Works:
•ADB
•Touchscreen
•Hardware Acceleration
•Notification LED
•Cellular Rado (But No Audio so no Calls)
•Physical Buttons
•SMS
•Accelerometer
•Charging
•Maybe More

What Doesn’t work:
•Wi-Fi/Bluetooth/NFC
•Audio
•Camera
•MTP
•Storage
•Maybe more

Just remember that like most ports in the intial phases, this is still not yet ready to be a daily driver. However, if you are a developer looking to contribute, or are just a someone who wants to live on the bleeding edge of technological glory, head on over to the original thread and give this a spin.

Do You Prefer Physical or on Screen Buttons?

More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.

New AOSP Branch Details Potential Build System Upgrades?

While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...
