Has JellyBean Been Confirmed?
Jellybean has BEAN spotted! Supposedly. This story could have been spoofed, but under the circumstances that we have received it, we’re going to take it as being true. Plus that’s better for everyone to believe, right?
This rumor was created by Yuku Sugianto, an Android developer, who is a very trustworthy dev. Yuku is also very established in the Play Store, an engineer at Found, and has a history of submitting bugs to the Android team. Now he can very well just be a huge troll, since everything in the log can be faked, but remember he is a trustworthy guy and also if it is faked, it’s faked at a very professional level.
In the log (which is below) you can see that the phone being a Galaxy Nexus, the version being Jelly Bean, and also the model being “takju”.These seem to be the most noting information to check out. Now, the CDMA Nexus has a model named “mysid” and the GSM is “yakju”, pretty much cancelling further rumors of it being the Sprint version, since Sprint’s Nexus will also be CDMA. The rest of the “specs” do check out to be updated versions of what the latest version o Android (4.0.4) for the current versions of the Galaxy Nexus offer. Suspicions, suspicions…..
Android JellyBean (no version number) spotted! I got an automatic crash report from one of my application and surprisingly the device info states JellyBean as the OS version. (Android is known to use no version number for unreleased version, e.g. Honeycomb instead of 11 or 3.0 when it was still developer preview)
PRODUCT=takju (what’s this takju thing?)
SERIAL=0149xxxxxxxxxxxx (removed by me)
TIME=1334275846000 (Fri Apr 13 00:10:46 UTC 2012)
Another interesting thing is the location of the external storage, which is in /storage/sdcard0 instead of /mnt/sdcard.
