Android 4.1.2 debuts with bug fixes, landscape support for Nexus 7
The hottest, newest version of our favorite mobile platform is starting to trickle out today as Android 4.1.2 makes its way into the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). What’s new? Not much, really. No, we mean it. According to the details we’ve come across, it’s still Jelly Bean and it’s about stability, bug fixes, and improved performance. EETimes is reporting that it also brings landscape mode to the Nexus 7, something for which we’ve longed hoped.
As a note to maintainers of community builds running on Nexus 7: please update to 4.1.2 at the first opportunity. Future variants of the grouper hardware will have a minor change in one of the components
(the power management chip) that will not be compatible with 4.1.1.
The build number is JZO54K, and the tag is android-4.1.2_r1.
