Sprint Nexus Devices Finally Getting Jelly Bean Via OTA

As we’ve discussed before, the allure of the Google Nexus devices are their timely updates to the latest and greatest versions of Android. However, that has hardly been the case for the CDMA Nexus devices. With the Verizon Galaxy Nexus receiving test builds of Jelly Bean, Sprint users have been wondering when their official Jelly Bean update would be coming for the Samsung Nexus S 4G and the Galaxy Nexus. After the OTA update was put on hold last week, Sprint is now officially rewarding their customer’s patience.

According to Sprint, the Galaxy Nexus update brings:

Nexus Software Update – L700.FH05

Enhancements/Fixes:

Operating system upgrade Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.  Below is a list of a few changes:
– Notification Bar – Expanded view of emails
– Meeting Makers – more information to notification bar.  Provides the ability to snooze and dismiss meetings from the notification bar.
– Addition of Google Now (online search):

  • Voice search
  • Integrated approach to search features within Google services

And the Nexus S 4G update brings:

Nexus S Software Update – JRO03R

Enhancements/Fixes:

Operating system upgrade Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.  Below is a list of a few changes:

– Notification Bar: Expanded view of emails
– Meeting Makers: more information to notification bar.  Provides the ability to snooze and dismiss meetings from the notification bar.
– Addition of Google Now (online search):

  • Voice search
  • Integrated approach to search features within Google services

As always, applying the update will remove root. So if that is important to you, make sure to watch for a rooted update from one of XDA’s talented developers.
