OTA Jelly Bean 4.1.2 update arrives on Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S and Motorola Xoom
A few days back we had reported about the new Jelly Bean 4.1.2 update for the Google Nexus 7. Well it seems that the Nexus 7 isn’t the only device to be getting this little 15MB update which tends to improve performance, increase stability and fix certain bugs. Today, Galaxy Nexus (yakju), Nexus S and Motorola Xoom (WiFi) owners users were greeted by an OTA (over-the-air) update, bringing their firmwares up to the latest version of Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. The update brings with it a few added enhancements like single digit expandable notifications (complete with tactual/haptic feedback) which enables you to drag expand the notification bar by using only one finger instead of two being used in the prior version.
The new update for the Galaxy Nexus is only for the international model and not the ones which are being sold off directly from the Play Store. This shouldn’t be much of a problem though as Google will most probably be shipping out the update for the “takju” models as well. For those who still haven’t received the OTA update can manually download and install from the XDA developers forum. As far as carriers including Sprint and Verizon go there is no official release date as to when their users would be getting the update (hopefully soon).
