A day or two later than expected, the update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for the Samsung-made Google Nexus S has started rolling out a few hours ago. It looks like it’s becoming available in Asia first.
The update is a 114.4 MB affair, and after applying it you’ll be on Android 4.1.1, build JRO03E. In case you’re impatient, you can do two things. One, manually check for updates in Settings. Maybe that will trigger the notification.
Alternatively, you could download the update directly from Google and apply it manually if you know how to do that. The direct link to the file is found in this forum thread.
If you’re into flashing custom things on your Nexus S, and have a custom recovery installed, then you already get to choose from two ROMs based on the OTA update. This one is 100% stock, and this one adds a few popular mods. If you have no idea what the words in the first sentence of this paragraph mean, please don’t do anything. Just be patient – the official update will hit your device soon.
That is, if it’s a GSM Nexus S. There’s still no word on when the Nexus S 4G for Sprint will get its taste of Jelly Bean, but as always we’ll keep you posted.
