While waiting for the Jelly Bean update to cover the entire world wide, since now it just arrived in a few countries, Samsung has released the source code for the GT-I9100, which is the international version of the Galaxy S2. This includes the Jelly Bean Android with the new Samsung Touch Wiz. The source code isn't of much use to people as it is especially useful for developers that like to create amazing ROMs for the GT-I9100. This makes their job a little easier now that they have the kernel source code. The GT-I9100 source code is based on firmware I9100XXLSD and can be downloaded for free from Samsung's server. Just search for GT-I9100 and look for the JB source code. If you are a dev, then good luck in making our Android experience even more exciting.
