The Samsung Galaxy S Android 4.2, JellyBean update is now available in the form of a new ROM and can be seen in new screenshots that surfaced on the internet today.
This is the first time the Galaxy S has been able to use the latest build of the software and some aspects of it still are not polished.
One example of this would be the absence of an Email/Exchange app, but this might not be there due to this build only being a pre-release.
Instructions to download the Android 4.2, JellyBean ROM can be found here.
The Android 4.2, update is expected to roll out to many devices in the near future. However, some that have already downloaded it are experiencing problems with it.
A bug on the software prevents users from selecting December for events such as birthdays inside the People app.
Google has stated that it will fix the bug before the beginning of next month.
"We discovered a bug in the Android 4.2 update, which makes it impossible to enter December events in optional fields of the People app," said Google on the Android Google+ page. "Rest assured, this will be fixed soon so that those of you with December birthdays and anniversaries won't be forgotten by your friends and family."
The Android 4.2, JellyBean update will not be available for Nexus S or Motorola XOOM users.
This news was confirmed by Google's Jean-Baptiste Queru, who stated that both devices will remain running Android 4.1.2.
The reasoning behind the software not updating to the latest build of Android is due to the older hardware included on the Nexus S and Motorola XOOM.
There were already reports of Android 4.1 running slow on both devices, so updating to the newer build would not be the best idea.
