Vodafone Australia Halts Jelly Bean Roll-Out

Vodafone Australia Halts Jelly Bean Roll-Out

Vodafone Australia’s Nexus S customers were set to be the first to get upgraded to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean today, until the telco realised that the software it was rolling out to customers didn’t meet Australian regulatory standards.

The error, first picked up by Ausdroid, means that Vodafone will halt the roll-out of Jelly Bean immediately.

The telco took to its blog to explain:

We’ve just been advised that due to a software issue, the roll-out the of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update to Vodafone Australia customers has been delayed.

It’s been advised the software currently does not meet all the Australian regulatory requirements related to emergency calls.

At this stage, we don’t have any further information on when the roll-out will resume, but as soon as we do, we’ll let you know here on the blog.

We thank you for your understanding and appreciate your patience at this time.

Oh dear.

The Nexus S is the previous generation of Android developer handset shipped by the carrier. Vodafone’s Nexus S customers were set to all be upgraded starting at 1pm AEST today, but this new development has since seen the upgrades stop in their tracks.

We’re still waiting to hear when Vodafone will resume the updates.
