Google has a nice little treat for all modders and developers, they have just released the source code for Android 4.1 JellyBean. The code was released today as part of the Android Open Source Project. Lead engineer on the project, Jean-Baptiste M. Queru, had the following for developers: “We recommend that you create new clients, even if you’re working in the master branch,it’ll make your clients smaller and faster to sync.”

Queru also mentioned that the proprietary binaries are now available for the Nexus 7 and Galaxy Nexus and will soon be available for the Nexus S and Xoom. This is good news for Cyanogen Mod fans which will definitely speed up the process of CM10 now that the source code is available. Are you excited that the source code has been released? Do you plan on tinkering with it or downloading any Jellybean ROMs? Let us know in the comment sections below.
