Hi everyone! A Jellybean OTA has been released for Google I/O, so in order to keep things organized all new discussions about it will be redirected here. Please keep in mind that this is a developer preview, as such it will likely have bugs and you must root in order to install it. If you don't wish to root you'll need to wait for Google or Samsung to release an OTA for your device.

If you have anything you feel should be linked here feel free to shoot me a PM with it.

Cheers!

Sorry, I wasn't able to edit my post for a long time & hope now that I can add a few more information from time to time.

Hello everybody,
I'm on stock Jelly Bean with official Jelly Bean bootloader + radio and want to tell you about my experience with it (There is a link in the first post to the tutorial for stock Jelly Bean).

Basic Information
I have not noticed any bugs with this ROM. The system is way smoother compared to any Ice Cream Sandwich version (Mostly the animations. The App Drawer animations is now completely fluid :). Many things that have annoyed me in ICS have been fixed and new some new functions have been added.

Biggest differences between ICS and JB:
This part will be a little bit messy because I'm going to change it a little bit but I really don't have that much time so I will do it in parts

Changes in Settings:
- Data Usage Graph is now linear, like in CM9
- Wi-Fi Direct has now an option menu
- WPS-Pin and Push Button Configuration is now supported
- The account-settings are now a seperated category in the settings
- Developer options have been rearranged and new ones have been added


- Some benchmarks are better:
- Some benchmarks are worse:


- Now there's an arrow downwards instead of the back button when the keyboard is opened:
- There is an other lockscreen animation and you can access google now from lockscreen:
- new animations:
- access google now instantly by swiping up from the home button:
- Process of adding a new word to the dictionary have been optimized:

- New Wallpapers:
- New Search-Bar:
- New Radio and Bootloader:
- New Boot-Animation:
- Homescreen objects rearrange when you add an widget automatically:
- New Google Music App:
- New Youtube App:
- New Google Maps app:
- New Voice Search app:
- Contacts with a higher resolution:
- Expandable Notifications:
- Completely redesigned nofication bar:
- New animations in gallery app
- Optimized Camera app:
- New programm-chosing-menu:
- If you want a tutorial or more information about jelly bean just write your questions here. I will update this post afterwards.

Questions:

Is google now english only? :
- No. I just asked a few questions in german. It gave me search results but I it just list sites with the answers. No knowledge graph in german. But it shows me my weather and my route to work with tiles :)

What happens if you enable/disable WiFi Direct for 5-10 times in a row? In ICS, after a couple of times toggling WiFi Direct the wifi driver crashed and I needed a reboot in order to make WiFi and WiFi Direct work again:
- Sorry I don't have another Wifi-Direct device to test this feature at this time.

Jellybean OTA released!

root

how i did it

ok you need to have clockworkmod recovery installed...
Code:
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
(insecure boot.img)
unzip boot.img.zip, boot to bootloader and
Code:
fastboot flash boot boot.img
or flash JRN84D-insecure-boot.zip from recovery

-put the CWM-SuperSU-v0.92-mod.zip on your sd and flash

done. :good:

if you have problems...
flash Koush's Jellybean repack (IMM76I OR IMM30D) http://d-h.st/Gkh

If recovery isn't sticking for you, delete recovery-from-boot.p in /system



...this is chainfire's super su

Jellybean OTA released!

Gallary : https://www.dropbox.com/sh/aqvteoek9k8ewwq/yzKZD-V6vJ

Some small changes that were not announced:

  • THE BAD: Navigation is still Gingerbread looking. Background gradients are still pixelated. Most importantly, NO PINCH TO ZOOM IN GMAIL! WTF Google?
  • The multitasking drawer loads faster when you press the button, but it makes you wait on the dimmed screen while it load the app screenshots. It gives the illusion of being faster.
  • Different animation based on how you switch to an app (ICS had only one)
  • Hotword Detection: launch voice search when you say "Google" (when you are running google now)
  • Jelly bean easter egg
  • New Developer options:
    SD card privacy protection (won't come into effect before the next major release)
    Animator duration scale (the window and transition animation options are still there)
    Disable HW overlay (not sure what this one is)
    etc
  • In contacts, there is a "Auto-sync app data" option that I think wasn't there before.
  • Messaging app widget!
  • New Contacts icon
  • New share action and intent picker pop out (big icons instead of a list)
  • Default font seems to be a little thinner than ICS Roboto in some places
  • NOTIFICATIONS CAN BE DISABLED. This one is a godsend. You can long press on notifications to get the info of the sender app (useful for detecting spam apps)
  • When keyboard is active, the back button turns into a downward arrow (just like tablet ICS).
  • WPS PIN setup for Wifi
  • Wifi-direct has more options (like CM9)
  • "Add-on dictionaries" : it's empty now until 3rd party keyboards leverage the new API. (I think you would be able to get dictionaries from play store in the future)
  • Kernel is based off 3.0.31 (ICS was 3.0.8)
  • Google play music has been updated (Nexus Q settings link, better interface, etc)
  • Keyboard shortcuts (example: brb expands to "be right back"). Catching up to Apple much Google?
  • NO ROOT RESTRICTION ON GOOGLE PLAY MOVIES!. I wonder how they pulled this off without compromising DRM.
  • SAFE BOOT: long press on "Power off" (in the menu that shows up when you long press power button) to get into this mode. Only system apps will be loaded (should come in handy when dealing with rogue apps)
  • Screen seems to be better calibrated. The colours are more neutral and less yellow.

hopefully this thread wont close on me right after i post...

so i backed up my apps with galaxy nexus toolkit before the downgrade and flashing method and after flashing i cant seem to get it to restore the apps through the toolkit. is there a restore option from the phone itself while its connected? in the toolkit it just hangs and doesnt prompt on screen. i had to setup the wifi with a static ip but it kept saying avoiding due to bad signal so i uncheckmarked that setting and now im getting TERRIBLE wifi coverage where i used to get moderate. anyone have any ideas on either of those problems? im also standing right next to the router.. currently restoring nandroid and starting the whole process over but instead with just koush

I use mybackup pro then just drag the backup folder to an from phone to PC to save an restore.Toolkit backups never worked for me.

happened to me too. You shouldn't flash such an unstable build if you're not comfortable with terminal and fastboot/adb commands.

Wifi is not working for me as well, i tried clearing dalvik cache and wiping the device (as per some guy's advice in a different thread) but it still didn't solve it for me.

Anyone managed to fix this ?

i ended up flashing koush on top of my original ics 4.0.4 without wipe and it works great! works as if it was a legit OTA. also noticed wifi didnt require static ip change and a slight improvement for the wifi. im loving the new google search! better than siri :) still playing with it and thanks to all that put their time into this! nexus FTW

The keyboard expansion where "brb" expands to "be right back" doesn't work.

Also, the voice search I think has gotten worse... the cards don't seem to work properly (aside from weather) and saying things like "Listen to Hello by Lionel Richie" and "Map of nearest gas stations" just returns google web search results.
