Android 4.1 Jelly Bean / CyanogenMod 10 Minimum Hardware Requirements

Google’s latest mobile operating system, Android 4.1 with the code name Jelly Bean has been introduced at the Google I/O and running for the first time on Google’s first Android Tablet Nexus 7 and Galaxy Nexus smartphone, this update provides a better user experience since it claimed to be the fastest and smoothest OS. With these offered improvements, as expected attract the curiosity a lot of people to immediately run this update on their devices, you must be wondering whether your device compatible with this update or not.


There’s no official announcement about the minimum hardware requirements for running Jelly Bean update, but if your current device has been capable to run the ICS update properly, then it’s likely that your device is also compatible with Android 4.1, although it isn’t officially from your device manufacturer. Some low-end smartphone such as the Xperia X8 which only equipped with a 600 MHz Single Core processor and 168 MB of RAM are able to run CM10 custom ROM (based on Android 4.1), so if your device has better specs than that, you have a greater chance to get this update, additionally it depends on the existence of a developers who would develop the CyanogenMod 10 ROM for your smartphone or tablet devices.

      Since it’s a local device (released only in India market), I can’t suggest any custom ROM for you. But you can ask for local developers to build custom Jelly Bean ROM of this device.
