The latest version of Android mobile operating system has been released to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) yesterday on March 28th. The exact version of this release is named as Android 4.0.4 r1.1. This news comes as Jean-Baptiste Queru,a Software Engineer at Android Open-Source Project from Google posted on Android Building Google Groups.
I’m in the process of pushing the Android 4.0.4 files (IMM76D) into
the Android Open-Source Project. This represents an incremental update
of a few hundred changes over 4.0.3.
This matches the update that has been sent to a few devices since yesterday.
As usual, the full source history is provided. Also, all changes are
merged into the master branch, from where it’s possible to contribute
The exact tagged version is android-4.0.4_r1.1
I expect that the push will be done by about 3pm PDT.
This opens the doors for the Android team to resume development of CTS
and of the developer tools directly in the Android Open-Source
The matching proprietary files will be available at
https://code.google.com/android/nexus/drivers.html by the end of day
(PDT). You should note that files related to CDMA devices (Nexus S 4G,
CDMA/LTE Xoom, CDMA/LTE Galaxy Nexus) have not been tested in the
context of AOSP. Of course, consumer support for those devices
I do not know the schedule for deployment to consumer devices,
especially in situations that involve additional per-operator
customizations done by the device manufacturers and/or in situations
that require operator approval prior to deployment.
So this means many Developers, ROM/Kernel coders can take a look at the Android 4.0.4 source code to update/enhance their ROM, apps and kernels. We could well be seeing some custom ROM’s with real Android 4.0.4 soon.
