Jelly Bean for the GSM EVO 3D, Xperia Play and Optimus GT540

The spread of Jelly Bean across XDA would be alarming if it weren’t so wonderful. Devices old and new alike are enjoying the latest and greatest from Google to some capacity. Some of the more recent devices to get Jelly Bean are the GSM HTC EVO 3D, LG Optimus GT540, and the Sony Xperia PLAY.

While the GSM EVO 3D is following its CDMA sibling and the Xperia PLAY is following its X8 and X10 siblings, the Optimus GT540 is perhaps the lowest spec’d device to get Jelly Bean thus far. With a 600MHz processor, 156MB of RAM, and just 139MB of user-available storage space, getting Jelly Bean on the Optimus GT540—which also has a smaller development atmosphere than most, if not all, other devices we’ve covered that got Jelly Bean—is truly an impressive feat. For the GSM EVO 3D, Jelly Bean was posted by XDA Senior Member Ubuntuz. The Xperia PLAY was the work of nickholtus with some help and the Optimus GT540 was done up by XDA Forum Member DevSwift1.

As you might have guessed, these builds are all on the experimental or preview stages of development. With bugs on all 3 ROMs ranging from camera and WiFi issues to data not working and broken hardware codecs, none of these ROMs are quite stable enough to use as an everyday ROM. That is not to say that they aren’t fun to play with. They make it easy to check out some of the features of Jelly Bean. Just make sure you have a Nandroid backup handy.
