Android 4.2.1 JOP40D Factory Images and Binaries Released for Nexus 4, Nexus 10, and Nexus 7

Google just posted the factory images and binaries for Android 4.2.1 “JOP40D” for the Nexus family of devices. If you own or are going to be the owner of one of these devices, you will want to download these files and store in a safe place. You never know when you may need to restore your device to 100% stock after tinkering for too long. We have generic instructions for flashing factory image files here.

    Why doesn’t the Nexus 10 have a microSD slot, who’s bright idea!!!!

  • SterlingPhoenix

    Is it me, or is there not 4.2.1 for the Nexus 10 in there?

  • james dawley

    Don’t blame Google blame big red right Tim

      Always. :P

    Why is it recommended that users download these? Can’t we just go out and get the latest if and when we screw up a device? I don’t think the Nexus builds are going anywhere. I know there was some scuffling with Verizon over their GNex images and the links but that was a special case.

      I have a Xoom 4g I want to put back to stock to sell. (because I got a Nexus 10) Factory Images aren’t online anywhere anymore. I wish I had downloaded them when I could.

        you’re right, that google removes them after a while, but they’re still out there. I believe xoom 4g is mz602. may want to check first:

        i’m sure you could find a link at xda or rootzwiki too.

          Thanks. So far all the links I find on forums are to a Motorola page that doesn’t exist anymore…

          • moelsen8

            sure thing. i think you just need rsdlite for those files.

          • moelsen8

            this could help you too. these are for your xoom when it was 3g-only I believe. they may still work, who knows, but it could be one of your only shots to get back to stock. i remember reading that you could probably just turn your xoom into a wifi-only one as well with the wifi software.

            There are software images for 4G there too. Can’t believe I didn’t think of this yesterday being such a big Bugless Beast fan. Downloading now!

      • technician199

        Oh no! I’m in the same boat, loving the N10 btw. Hopefully we find them.

      You never know when the Internet will be down. It’s best to just download and save them in a safe folder just in case :)

      • Hunter

        Makes sense.

      • r0lct

        If the Internet is down what are you going to do with your device anyway? Don’t tell me you still make calls! :P

        • Droidzilla

          If the internet is down, God help us all.

          • EC8CH

            God help the people of Syria then….

            seriously.

          • Droidzilla

            With their government and the tenour of their people, God help them with or without the internet. Internet is a low priority to people willing to strap explosives to their children.

    Where’s the image for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus?

  • ddevito

    how quickly the GNex is forgotten

    • bitpimpin

      I know right? Remember back when these posts were all about the gsm gnex images? I long for those days lol

      • bitpimpin

        Scratch that… The 4.2.1 builds for the gnex are there at the source page… Looks like Google didn’t forget (droid life just forgot) :P

  • r0lct

    Totally unexpected, no 4.2.1 for the toto yet…

    • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

      I sense sarcasm in your remark about the toro version….lol
