It has been a good week for hackers who want to experiment with their Android powered devices. Earlier this week Samsung released source code for several devices, like the Galaxy S III Mini, the AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note II, and their Galaxy Tab devices.
Stock Jelly Bean factory images are now available for the Samsung Nexus S and Nexus S 4G. The builds are labeled as JRO03E and JRO03L respectively. I’m sure this will make many Nexus S developers happy!

Sprint customers who own Samsung Galaxy Nexus or Nexus S 4G devices will be happy to know they are about to receive Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Sources have confirmed Sprint plans to rollout the update for the devices starting September 6th. According to Sprint’s internal information, Galaxy Nexus devices will receive update FH05 while Nexus S 4G owners will receive update JRO03R.
Earlier this week Jelly Bean had begun appearing on Nexus S devices in Pakistan. Today on the Nexus Google+ account, they announced that Jelly Bean is currently being released to customers on at least five different carriers around the world, presumably, this includes the unlocked GSM models too.
Developers or others who enjoy flashing their phones have a nice new option available if they have a Verizon Galaxy Nexus smartphone. After starting the process of rolling out a Jelly Bean update to Verizon users earlier this week, the factory images are now available on the Google Developers site for download.
It was only a matter of time before we saw the first batch of Google devices get the anticipated Jelly Bean update since you know— it had just released Android 4.1 to the AOSP and all. And so just when you thought life with the GSM/HSPA+ version of the Galaxy Nexus couldn’t get any better, it just got better as it is officially getting the smooth and buttery update.
The best part about owning a Nexus device is the almost immediate ability to upgrade to a new version of Android when it’s announced. Shortly after announcing Android 4.3, Google has put up factory images of the software for Nexus users to download and install.
