Google Posts Updated 4.1.1 Binaries for the Nexus S 4G

Google Posts Updated 4.1.1 Binaries for the Nexus S 4G:

Last month we reported that Google had resolved issues regarding the Nexus S 4G’s full aosp support, adding they could now “…properly distribute its CDMA and WiMAX binaries.” Today this goes a step further with the publishing of the, latest binaries (JRO03H Android 4.1.1) for the Nexus S 4G (Sprint). It’s a bunch of technical talk meaning one major thing: loads of new AOSP Jelly Bean ROMS.
Back when Google announced full AOSP support for the Nexus S 4G, some of the binaries were not available. With the addition of these files, developers can build a stock ROM 100% from the ground up without the need of reverse engineering. This allows cameras, NFC, and Wimax to work as intended on supported phones. New binaries for the GSM Nexus phones, Motorola Xoom, and Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus were also posted. Sadly, Sprint’s Galaxy Nexus will not be supported in AOSP.
Unfortunately, this has nothing to do with any OTA updates for the Nexus S 4G and it could be more then a month until Google and Sprint officially push anything. Don’t let that get you down though, soon you will be able to get your hands on plenty of Jelly Beans ROMs! Until then, familiarize yourself with how to use ‘fastboot’ and how to flash a ROM. This might be a good place to start.
