Android 4.1 Jelly Bean hits AOSP today

It kinda feels like Christmas in July, doesn’t it? Fist, Google’s Nexus 7 will launch sometimes this month. Now, we’re hearing from Mr. Jean-Baptiste Queru, who is top dog at Google’s Android Open Source Project, that Android 4.1 has been released in AOSP today.

If you’re the average user, there isn’t much you could do with this source code. However, Android developers are probably already working on integrating Android 4.1 with their code base. So, we will soon start seeing custom ROMs such as CyanogenMod and AOKP hitting our devices.

Queru also announced that the proprietary binaries for the Nexus 7 and Galaxy Nexus are available. The ones for the the other AOSP-supported devices, Nexus S and Motorola Xoom, will come at a later time.

With the CyanogenMod team still working on making a stable CM9 ROM, we are hoping that that they’ll grace us with some CM10 in the near future. In fact, they already started downloading the source code. Get those phones of yours ready!

Which AOSP ROM are you the most excited about?
