Mod Edit - this is now where all JB discussions will be directed.

Old News

Before ranting about how Samsung sucks blah blah and messing up this thread, please read this --->post<--- first.



I will start a discussion about JellyBean (Android 4.1) so that our forum will not be cluttered with JB stuff.



Although i was late in viewing the live stream of google i/o i found this info over at phonearena. Jellybean will remove lag on devices that will run it? If so it would be cool to have it on our device (even though i only experience micro stutter lag). Hope it removes those little lag i experience sometimes.

Do you think our device will get updated to JellyBean? My personal opinion is yes because it is just a point release not a major overhaul of the OS. Maybe it will be less hassle to developers on porting it from ICS to JB than from GB to ICS (since this one is a major update). What do you guys think? Will it finally remove the micro lags we are experiencing or will it just be another android update without much improvement?

I really hope they update sgs2 to JB. Like the sgs1 which got 3 updates (from eclair, froyo then gb). I hope if sammy will update the s2 to jb they will not mess it up, although i think it will still have the same UI.

I'm a bit confused. Is JellyBean going to be version 4.1 or 5.0?

"The first side of the Jelly Bean update is the way it interacts with hardware. One of the main complaints with Androids is that it often gets laggy even on the most sophisticated devices. Google has finally radically addressed this so manufacturers and developers can make their devices lag-free. The solution is called Project Butter and it comes with triple buffering so that the CPU and GPU work without waiting for each other. This means scrolling, zooming and virtually all actions become much faster."
It took them 4 MAJOR versons to fix this! Shame on you Google!

Talking 4.1 Jelly Bean
4.1 is Jelly Bean.

Super excited for the release of the new ASUS Nexus 7 tablet, which will run with 4.1 Jelly Bean.

I expect great performance from this latest update. I expect that if they are marketing it to be lag free, than it should be.

Cannot wait to see for myself!

Yeah, this is my main concern, there are a lot of flash videos I watch in the browser that are not available in other formats
