Jelly Bean Ported to the CDMA Galaxy Nexus
With Android Jelly Bean being announced just a couple of days ago, developers wasted no time bringing Jelly Bean goodies to various devices. This includes the GSM Galaxy Nexus. Now, another device has been added to the Jelly Bean frenzy. As with its GSM sibling, the CDMA Galaxy Nexus can now enjoy the newest version of Android.
Both the Sprint and Verizon Galaxy Nexus have Jelly Bean ports. XDA Recognized Developer shabbypenguin has a port in progress for the Sprint edition, while Team Liquid is responsible for the Verizon port.
The Sprint version is still a little choppy. While enough features work for use as a daily driver, there are a few kinks. The current list of things not working is:
Users are also reporting miscellaneous issues like MMS not working properly, and a few lost root access as well. Minor issues aside, the developers have been working around the clock to fix the issues, so it’s only a matter of time before everything gets fixed.
The Verizon port has had a bit more work done with it, and it shows. With a number of things wrong at a very desirable number—zero—users of the Verizon Galaxy Nexus should have no fears in using their Jelly Bean port. With these ports, that gives every Galaxy Nexus user access to Jelly Bean.
To access the Jelly Bean goodness, check out either the Sprint Galaxy Nexus thread or the Verizon Galaxy Nexus thread, which points to the Verizon thread on RootzWiki.
