Nexus One Lives On, Gets Jelly Bean

The last time we brought you news of the Nexus One, it was to assure everyone that it wasn’t too old to run Ice Cream Sandwich. The trackball-wielding device certainly isn’t getting any younger, but that doesn’t mean it’s getting left behind either. Along with another not-so-moldy oldy, the Nexus One has received a healthy dose of Jelly Bean.

XDA Recognized Developer texasice has released a pre-alpha Jelly Bean ROM for Nexus One owners. The ROM is actually in pretty decent running condition. The list of things working include:

Data is working for me
Wifi
Bluetooth
Rotation
Mic
Sound
Usb Mass storage
HWA is a bit slow. But working fine for now.
Gps
Apps2sd
Trackball

Since this is a pre-alpha release, there are bound to be quite a few bugs. So despite the impressive list of working items, there is an equally impressive list of things that aren’t working. This means that this probably can’t be used as a daily driver just yet. Also, users must be running the latest HBoot in order for the release to work correctly. Simply download it, and flash via fastboot.

It is quite nice to see the old device getting the latest and greatest of Android. For additional information, check out the original thread.
