Question

Posted

Hello folks,

I did some quick searches to see if this had been posted already, but didn't find any.

I just stumbled across this "easter egg" on my LG Nitro HD running Android 4.0.4 - ICS, completely by accident. I was looking to see if AT&T had released an OTA update for this phone yet (which of course they haven't) by going thorough Settings -> About phone -> Software update. Frustrated with the lack of available updates, i just started clicking on the "Android version" entry. If you click on it repeatedly, this little Ice Cream Sandwich NyanCat Dude shows up. Click on him and hold down for a few seconds, and you get pure epic awesomeness! I won't spoil that by posting the screencap here, though.

I later searched Google and found this to be an already known easter egg, but it was totally a surprise to me. Enjoy.

Same thing happens on my Nexus 4. Except instead of Nyandroid, I get a giant red jellybean with android antennae and a smilie face.

And if you keep tapping the screen, you get a new screen with a bunch of jelly beans floating in zero-g. Pretty cool.

Yep, I get Jelly Beans too

You need to press and hold on the first image that appears for a much more fun image ;)

Nyan & Jelly Beans have the extra feature once you press and hold on them

Yeah, i tried the above on my Galaxy S3 running 4.1 JellyBean and saw the same thing. (Y) you can fling the beans around, too, if you're really bored.

First time i've ever found an easter egg by accident, i think.

Yup. Same here on my nexus 7. I like throwing the jelly beans around. Pretty cool feature. If you tap the build number it will enable the developer options.

this has been around for many versions of android, in jelly bean builds it pops up a bunch of beans that you can fling around.

This is an easter egg that has been in the base Android code since Gingerbread. Some manufacturer's modified versions may remove it, but AOSP will always do it. Gingerbread is Android Zombie art, ICS is ice cream sandwich androids doing nyan cat, and JB is just jellybeans.

Wow, those are nice, what can you do with them, use them as wallpapers on the phones?

An oldie, but a goodie! I love flicking jelly beans around on my SGS with cyanogen mod 10 stable. Phone is as solid as a rock, though. No instability, and no AT&T garbage. Just the way I like it! (I discovered the easter egg by accident)

I once found a candy cane floating around in amongst a sea of jelly beans on my 4.1 tablet.

Hahaha, that's great! Seeing as I'm still on ICS with my S3 I get the Nyandroid version.

I've tried that a few times before, and never was able to get them all off the screen. I'd imagine that you'd have an easier time getting them all off on a lower-resolution screen.

ah, you beat me to that joke :laugh:

Isn't this easter egg awesome, though? I didn't know about it either until my brother (who works for Samsung) showed me a couple of months ago. :D
