Folks, we have always dreamed of a day where we can have multiple user accounts on our tablet. That day looks to finally be here, as a user on the XDA Developers forum found multiple-user account support within a recent build of Jelly Bean on the Android Open Source Project. The feature was activated through a bit of code trickery and is not super functional (actually having a bit of issues), but it definitely shows that full multi-user support may be on its way in future versions of Android — perhaps Key Lime Pie? The multiple user account menu appears in the power menu of Jelly Bean. You can check out the source link for the full instructions or see the new find in action below. [XDA Forums via SlashGear]
