Android enthusiasts at XDA Developers have already started experimenting with the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system, the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. They claimed that they have managed to port Jelly Bean OS to the Samsung Galaxy S GT-I9000 smartphone.
TAJB (Team Android Jelly Bean), which is comprised of developers like ali1276, MKalter and Capez, created the custom ROM. As this is still a very early build, several of its functions, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Calls, are still not working. But, as they have reached this stage, we can expect a stable Jelly Bean ROM soon.
The list of features that are functioning properly includes the touchscreen, GPU, softkeys/hardkeys, USB, Butter, ADB, camera, and internal & external SD card. It is easy to install. You will have to just dump the ROM in the internal memory, boot into CWM, swab everything and flash the ROM.
Jelly Bean is schedule to come to the Nexus S by mid-July, and as the Galaxy S and the Nexus S smartphones are very similar, it was just a matter of time before some tech enthusiasts ported it over.
According to Google, Jelly Bean OS builds on top of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS). Jelly Bean promises to make everything smoother and quicker. For example, it makes notifications more dynamic, which lets users to access and interact with the alert from the drop-down menu, without any need to open the app.
