Download: Android 4.2.2 JDQ39 for “yakju” GSM Galaxy Nexus

samsung galaxy nexus

News broke of Android 4.2.2 JDQ39 rolling out to most of the Nexus devices just the other day and now the update file for the “yakju” GSM Galaxy Nexus is available for download. If you have an international version of the Galaxy Nexus, this file will bring you up to date rather than the other update file for the “takju” variant, the one you get from ordering from Google Play here in the US. 

This file can only be used if you are on JOP40D (Android 4.2.1). To flash, install via custom recovery, use “adb sideload <filename>” from stock recovery, or try the Google Services Framework trick (hasn’t worked for me). You’ll also find a root file at the XDA thread below.

Here is our full guide on updating without root and using adb sideload.

    What about the occam? I bought my Nexus 4 from the Play Store here in the US, and I have an occam, when will they get it?

  • Waiting on a Shiny update for toro.

    EDIT: And it’s done!!

      Baldy is awesome!

  • Any idea why the Nexus 4 is falling behind?

      I hope that Google and Qualcomm are trying to finalize msm_hsic_host fixes.
