Jelly Bean Already Ported to International HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S III
What? Did you think the Android development community was really going to sleep on this one? If so, boy did you think wrong. Jelly Bean was just announced a couple of days ago and it has already begun to spread like wildfire. Much to the surprise of no one, the Galaxy Nexus was the first device to see a leaked version of the latest version, Android 4.1, but now it looks like we can add two more devices to the scrumptious list.
The international variants of the HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S III have already landed Jelly Bean ports over on XDA, thanks respectively to XDA Senior Member tgascoigne and XDA Recognized Developer faryaab. Keep in mind, these ports are highly experimental, and we do not recommend them for those who afraid of running alpha-staged software, but for those of you who like to live on the bleeding edge and have the latest version of Android before anyone else, this is your time to shine.
Check out the ins and outs of each of the two ROMs below:
- Core system with little to no crashes
- Galaxy Nexus Android 4.1 OTA
- Modified CM9 Kernel (Kernel Source)
- Hardware Acceleration
- Notification LED
- Cellular Rado (But No Audio so no Calls)
- Physical Buttons
- Maybe More
What Doesn’t work:
- Maybe more
As you can see, there are still some bugs that need to be worked out, but we have faith that all will be squashed in due time. Now, I’m just sitting here anxiously waiting for news about the US variants of the Galaxy S III. Then I will be happy.
