Sprint Finally Updates Galaxy Nexus to Jelly Bean 4.1.1

posted Sep 12, 2012, 2:46 AM by Israel Torres

Wednesday September 12, 2012 01:52 Notification that a System Update is available for my Galaxy Nexus. I had gotten a few of these sporadically since buying the phone when it was first released by Sprint in hopes it was actually Jelly Bean


Judging by the size of the update 173.8MB it looked promising!

After patiently waiting a few minutes the phone restarted and was presented with this!

Hoping it wasn't too good to be true I drilled down to the system settings menu to verify the Android version and it was indeed 4.1.1!

Learning the easter egg from ICS (successively clicking "Android version") the verification came up!

Followed up by the successive tickling... resulting in interactive (flickable) jelly beans!

July 9th 2012 was the official JB release date ... it only took 2 months and 3 days to get to my phone!

AppleTV via WiFi and long passwords are teh suck.

posted Aug 2, 2012, 3:12 PM by Israel Torres   [ updated Aug 2, 2012, 3:20 PM ]

So I've decided to get all my stuff rock'n over wifi and eliminate the cable run clutter. Everything was humming along until I decided to hook up all the AppleTVs. I have the Apple Airport Extreme configured with a super long password (it's really silly long) and I always dread when I have to configure wireless devices that don't have a keyboard available such as my Amazon Kindles and AppleTVs... so I've been holding off until AMC decided to take their free viewings of Breaking Bad Season 5 offline just recently. I hadn't caught up to the last two episodes so I searched around for alternative viewing places most of which were trollvilles. I had a bunch of iTunes credits so I ended up staring at my AppleTV again knowing hooking it back up was inevitable. I hooked up the HDMI and the power and went to configure the WiFi... First I have a really long SSID which took a while to input... then came the even longer password.


Naturally it didn't work the first time out.


... so after the 5th time (yes it was quite painful) ... I finally got in


... then I had log into iTunes using the AppleTV's configured account with my credits on them... and finally to the Breaking Bad selection where the Season Pass option was available.


... carefully reading this over - this was my first time buying a Season Pass off iTunes.


Everything went great!... and it tried to start me off with Ep01, but I already had seen it over AMC's website (when it was offered) and moved forward to Ep02... I'm saving EP03 for tonight before being caught up for Sunday's Ep04.


The moral of the story here is that AppleTV sucks for long passwords - at least mount a BT/USB interface for a keyboard, or slap on a web interface over LAN... #firstworldproblems.
