Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 update hitting GSM Galaxy Nexus today

gsm - for some reason we don't have an alt tag here

The Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 over-the-air update has already been released for the ASUS Google Nexus 7, but owners of Samsung’s current-generation Nexus device – the Galaxy Nexus – haven’t had a chance to download the same update to their own devices.

Until today, that is. The update, in over-the-air form, has started to hit the GSM Galaxy Nexus. Weighing in at 15.1MB, the update simply squashes bugs, improves stability, and slathers a little more Butter onto the GUI to make performance a bit faster. It also allows expandable notifications to be opened with one finger, versus the two that it used to require.

Unfortunately, owners of either the Verizon or Sprint Galaxy Nexus models will have to wait a little longer, as the update is only for GSM variants.

Other than those small things, 4.1.2 is the same flavor of Jelly Bean that you’ve come to know, love, and consume on a daily basis. At 15.1MB, the update is certainly worth your time. Let us know if you find anything else that has been fixed or improved upon!
