People always ask me, “Max, do I need to unroot to take OTA?” Well, the answer is yes and no.
If you are rooted, there’s usually rooted OTA custom ROMs you can flash in ClockworkMod Recovery (usually within 24 hours) of the update, which allows you to easily update to the OTA and keep root, settings, and apps.
So, here’s Jelly Bean rooted ROM 4.1.1 for all Galaxy Nexus variants including GSM, Sprint, or Verizon. And if you ask me which version of Galaxy Nexus you have, you either have Sprint or Verizon. If you don’t have Sprint or Verizon, it’s a GSM Galaxy Nexus you have.
The new Android Jelly Bean 4.1.1 comes with minor changes which involve mostly with responsiveness and more speed. I did see just a “tag” bit of lag in the original Jelly Bean but it seems all of that is completely “zappped” with this new update.
For those of you on Jelly Bean already, no need to wipe, just install ROM over it and you should be all good to go. For those of you on ICS or any other custom ROM, please do wipe.
And let me know what you think of the new version!
ONLY For Sprint Galaxy Nexus, please also install Gapps.
