Google has rolled out the source code of Android4.1 (Jelly Bean) for developers, who can receive it from Android Open Source Project.
With this release, the manufacturers who use Android in their smartphones and tablets can begin working on the latest edition of Google’s open source mobile operating system for existing and upcoming devices.
Custom firmware providers like CyanogenMOD and MIUI will also use the source code for JellyBean to build the next iteration of their firmware. The team at CyanogenMOD has already stated that it will commence working on CM10, whereas the plans for the previous edition of its custom firmware are on schedule.
On the official Android building group, Android team’s Jean-Baptiste Queru posted that the search giant has also rolled out the ‘proprietary binaries’ for devices like Nexus 7 and Galaxy Nexus. The same for Nexus S and Motorola Xoom are expected soon.
