Jelly Bean Roms Start to Appear Already

In a very short time Google’s newest operating system Jelly Bean has shown up on a number of phones as unofficial roms. This is possible due to the availability of the Nexus 7 factory image, called Nakasi, which can be downloaded from the Google Developer’s page here- https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images#nakasi  .  Although most (65%) of android devices are still running Gingerbread 2.3, those who like to hack their devices(phones and tablets) can usually find an Ice Cream Sandwich  rom to flash, with varying degrees of usability.  With the release of Jelly Bean so soon after ICS, it’s likely many developers will skip trying to port ICS, and dive into JB.  What manufacturers will do is a different story.  Typically taking much longer  to add in their proprietary overlays, they have likely invested much time and effort into bringing ICS to their products.  Unless it is extremely easy to convert their work to the new operating system, it makes no sense to start over and delay upgrades again by many more months.
