Vodafone Australia Delays Nexus S Jelly Bean Update Due to ‘Software Issue’

Vodafone Nexus S Jelly Bean

Vodafone Australia made news earlier this week after becoming the first carrier to announce that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is coming to the Samsung Nexus S. The update was scheduled to land on devices today, but the carrier has now announced that it will be delayed until further notice.

In a post on its blog, Vodafone explains that the Jelly Bean update for the Nexus S has a “software issue” that prevents it from meeting “Australian regulatory requirements related to emergency calls.” The company doesn’t know when the rollout will resume, it says, but as soon as it does, it promises to let customers know.

When Vodafone first announced the update, it said that the software was already “approved by Vodafone,” and that it was simply waiting for Google to perform its rollout, which should have happened at 1 p.m. AEST today. Obviously an issue was discovered prior to its release, so Nexus S users in Australia will have to wait a little while longer.

It’s unclear how this will affect the software’s rollout in other countries. Vodafone Australia is the only carrier to have announced it up to this point, but this delay could mean that the update goes live elsewhere before popping up down under.
