Vodafone Australia finally rolls out Jelly Bean on its Nexus S

You might remember that Vodafone Australia halted the roll-out of Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean to its version of the Nexus S last month, following regulatory concerns over the handling of emergency calls. Well, it now seems everything's been straightened out, as according to Ausdroid, Aussies are waking up on Thursday morning to a brand new Vodafone Nexus S OTA.

In addition, customers on the Vodafone-based Crazy Johns network (yes, that's a real carrier name down under) are reporting that their Nexii are also seeing the update to Jelly Bean.

It's bound to have been a frustrating few weeks for subscribers on these networks, as U.S. and international Nexus S phones started to receive Jelly Bean way back on July 19. But it seems the wait is over now, so if you're on Vodafone Australia, head to Settings > About phone > Software updates to see if it's your turn to grab the OTA.

  • I think I may be the only person on sprint that owns a Galaxy Nexus and isn't on 4.1. Rooting and installing a custom rom doesn't seem to be my slice of pie so who knows when I can taste Jelly Bean
