Shortly after Google pushed a Jelly Bean preview update to I/O attendees, RootzWiki made it available to the public. The update was originally intended for GSM Galaxy Nexus smartphones, however hardworking developers were able to iron out the LTE bugs and make it available to all Galaxy Nexus models. The leak is 100% functional and no bugs have been found; the only requirement for users to install the software that root access must be gained. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean includes a new notification system, Google Now, offline voice dictation and a faster user interface enabled by “Project Butter.”
