As promised at the time Google has released today the source code of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. This is great news for developers and modders who wanted to get strong into this new version after Google will launch it in the recent Google I / O. This release is a fundamental part of Android Open Source Project. This time they have released up to parts of the binary proprietary code for the Nexus 7 and the Galaxy Nexus and that will soon arrive from Nexus S and Xoom.
Jelly Bean 4.1 was designed from the foundations of Ice Cream Sandwich but, according to the appreciations of its creators, it will offer a smoother, more fluid and dynamic experience. Especially improved the link between events that we have not been able to attend as mails, missed calls and messages and our response: return the call, send a message or mail indicating that we are busy, etc. Other improvements focused on keyboard speed and voice recognition, which works even without an internet connection.
From today this code it is downloadable and you can try to implement and modify. The consequences of this event are several. To begin with, we will see in a little more devices, smartphones and tablets that incorporate the Jelly Bean operating system. This seems to be the fundamental intention of Google beyond the philanthropic values of the Android Open Source Project. And is that in the statement announcing the release of the code, Jean-Bapstiste Queru, technical head of the project, encourages developers to create new customers, that is, new devices based on this software.
The other logical consequence is that they soon begin to be found on the internet forums unofficial versions of Jelly Bean that the intrepid and experts install in their devices to test new functionalities. It is even possible that versions of Jelly Bean are found for older devices that were not initially prepared for it. In this sense the team of Cyanogen Mod He will start working with the code soon and his fans are already looking forward to seeing what they can do with it.
