Stock Android 4.3 For Nexus S a.k.a. Crespo

And Nexus S users have another feather to their cap. It really did not take long for Crespo to get the latest Android 4.3 for it courtesy of this release. Xda Senior Member Win7Fun has successfully built the stunning Stockl Jb 4.3 for crespo users and mark my words, it is real awesome. Almost all things are working, the major bug being the Camera Force closing sometimes but that shouldn’t keep you from having a go at android’s latest release. It is smooth and there are no lags at all. It has all the awaited features of Jellybean 4.3 and is a must use. So, let’s get going and flash this on our Nexus S. Here are the screenshots, working and not working list and the flashing instructions.

  • Bluetooth
  • Sound
  • Camera
