Less than 24 hours after Google wowed the world with the announcement of their Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system update, here we are with a leaked version of the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean ROM for the Galaxy Nexus already making its rounds online. This leaked ROM is meant for ‘takju’, which actually is the GSM-enabled version of the Galaxy Nexus that comes with Google Wallet compatibility, but it has been tested to run just fine ‘yakju’, the standard issue device which is also from the GSM Galaxy Nexus stable – and both devices will run the leaked ROM without any known issues.

If you happen to own either one of the two GSM Galaxy Nexus mentioned, then you might want to give this leaked ROM a go. Of course, if you are not too sure of what you are doing, then steer clear of it and wait for an official update release. That is normally the best way of doing things for those who always tread on the safe side.
