With the release of Android Jelly source code, developers have ported the software through a plethora of devices in a short span of time. Back in June, the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean ROM was ported to HTC One X. This time, AOSP-build Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean) has been ported on HTC One X by an XDA Senior Member tgascoigne. "This is a pure AOSP build, the only changes I've applied are to add the Nexus 7 boot animation, APNs, and stuff that is required to get it working," claims tgascoigne on xda-developers. "At current, I'd only recommend this to those curious. However, as we now have the full source to Jelly Bean, it is a lot easier to debug and get everything fixed up, so keep checking back," adds tgascoigne.
Several features are working such as internal memory usage, multitouch, wi-fi, Global Positioning System (GPS), Near Field Communication (NFC), USB mounting, radio and more. The developer claims the radio gets connected only after manually searching for the network, and then the signal indicator breaks with no mobile data connection. Unfortunately, the issues in question relate to the camera, sound and Google Now.
