Android Jelly Bean update for Galaxy Nexus was already available since few weeks ago. Unfortunately, it is only compatible with the unlocked GSM version of the device. In the mean time, there is still no words about when similar update will be released for locked 4G LTE US edition of Galaxy Nexus. Owners of Verizon’s variant would have to play around with some custom ROMs if they want to have a sneak peek on how JB works on their handset. Then what about Sprint Galaxy Nexus?
Well, lucky for them, the Now Network was already release Jelly Bean update for their edition of GNex since few days ago. However, since the update was spread via OTA, it might take weeks or even months before it reach all devices. And that is certainly not cool at all.
But there’s no give up for advanced android users like us right? According to some respected developers over XDA, the update is now available for download via Google’s servers. This is mean that you can pull and install it manually on your Sprint Galaxy Nexus.
Before you start doing anything, make sure that your handset is already download and running on Sprint’s latest OTA (FG01). Other condition that you must meet is either have your phone rooted or bootloader’s file unlocked and install it with custom recovery file.
So, if your Galaxy Nexus already met all those conditions that i mention above, then you are ready to embrace the new Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean. First, you need to download all necessary files here and flash them one by one via custom recovery. If you’re somehow face booting problems, you can do Wipe Cache/ Partition and Wipe Dalvik Cache. These options are all available on the custom recovery mode. For more detailed explanation on the installation guide, you can also point your browser to XDA forum.
Well, that is all from me now. If you manage to update your Sprint Galaxy Nexus to Android 4.1.1, do not forget to come back here and tell me what do you think about it guys.tags: Android 4.1.1, galaxy nexus, Jelly Bean, manual, Sprint, Update
