We’re always impressed with the speed at which developers can quickly hack up a new version of Android to run on a “technically” unsupported device. Less than 24-hours after Google announced Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, XDADevelopers has published a beta build of Android 4.1 for HTC One X owners. There’s a catch, though, that might steer many clear of the current build for a while. The developers were able to publish Jelly Bean, but it lacks full Wi-Fi, audio and camera support and “probably more,” the forums said. Those are pretty major features, especially since the One X has amazing ImageSense camera software that allows One X owners to snap dozens of photos in rapid fire. In any case, if you’re itching to check out the new features in Jelly Bean, such as Google Now, improved search and the new keyboard, then the trade-offs may be worth it. As always, install at your own risk.
