Android 4.2.2 (JDQ39) Factory Images Posted for Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, 10, and 7

Android 4.2.2 Nexus 7

The factory images for the Android 4.2.2 (JDQ39) update that was released this week to a number of Nexus devices have now been posted. We’re seeing images for the Nexus 4, Nexus 10, Nexus 7 (HSPA+ too), and Galaxy Nexus (both “takju” and “yakju”).

Be sure to download for your specific device, they may come in handy down the road if you ever need to restore your device to a factory state, flash a stock recovery, or save yourself from a ROM flashing misstep.

It also appears that 4.2.1 images have been removed. You can download the new images at the source link below.

    Nexus 10/ 4.2.2. Say goodbye to Adobe Flash Dolphin Browser sort of works with Firefox.

    Nexus 10 4.2.2 from google. 4 reboots in 30 min. Does not seem to have fixed reboot problem. Why could they not fix this?

  • And with this I am thinking about jumping to Shiny from BB. Any thoughts?

    • snowblind64

      Do it! Shiny is awesome, and baldwinguy (the dev) is great about keeping up with the latest updates and AOSP patches. I was running it until I sold my Gnex and still running it on my wife’s Gnex.

      • Jwhap

        I love shiny! Baldwinguy rocks!

    my roomate's step-mother makes $67 an hour on the laptop. She has been without a job for 9 months but last month her paycheck was $21589 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Read more on this site jump14.om

    Updating my N4 in Dallas…Via WIFI…

  • ChristianJohnson

    Remember when the Verizon Gnex was supported? Yeah. Me neither.

  • Steve

    Just filed my obligatory complaint email with Verizon. I hope all you Toro users follow suite. We are now officially 3 updates behind…inexcusable.

    • Ivo Shandor

      I’m sure that email is sent right over VZ headquarters and into a river.

      • just truth

        I have it that their customer service inbox goes directly in the trash.
        Do not pass go, do not collect $200

  • Tech Pro

    Thus make me want to buy Nexus. Buy Nexus 4 is ugly. Wishes moto x is better looking.

  • RW-1

    Gee, we need to move on over TORO, I have one, but heck I expected this from VZ, I root and ROM. I’m awaiting mmuzzy to move forward. so far from what I hear, the repo is updated, but looks like it is not complete as far as devices. The term “merging hell” was tossed out on Twitter … But C’mon, if you have a Nexus, use it like one and give the finger to VZ, you know they won’t release it until 2015, if at all.

    • michael arazan

      I’ve been putting it off, but i may have to learn to root and rom. I just like stock android, Any roms that are just a copy of stock Android 4.2 and up? vzw GNex

    • Dave

      I just read that it has something to do with the fact that they forgot to update the manifest file, and plan on doing so today.

  • David Cosme Jr.

    What is the Galaxy Tab 10.1 (the original) wifi only 16gb codenamed? Will any of these work for that?

    • Pdiddy187

      p4wifi and no. Use CM.

      • David Cosme Jr.

        Thanks! Already using CM and mostly like it. I’m always on the hunt, just in case something better comes along. This “old tablet” is holding it’s own with the help of some custom roms though.

        • Pdiddy187

          I’m using CM on mine as well. It does hold it’s own, especially with Nova Prime.

        • You will get nothing better than what pershoot (CM’s p4wifi maintainer) is putting out.

  • Glad to see a day hasn’t gone by without the obligatory “F U Verizon Update our GNex’s now” comments… (i am one of those people)

  • Daniel Hargreaves

    Already have it on my toro gnex with Shiny. TGFD!

  • DanWazz

    Still waiting for my nexus 7 OTA, and PA to merge 4.2.2 for toro

    • Adam Ropic

      do you know an eta for the nexus 7 OTA?

      • DanWazz

        No idea. usually I get the update within a week of it being pushed.

        • Jwhap

          You all know there are downloads posted here on DL, right?

          • DanWazz

            Yeah, but I’m patient enough to wait. I like the feeling of being prompted for an update, since my N7 is the only device I have that gets timely ones.

          • Jwhap

            Cool. I just wanted you to know, of you had not seen it. I am a bit more impatient, so o had flashed it once it showed up…… Lol

  • Trusstopher

    Toro left in the dark again… Yay!

    • Yup. 🙁

    • EC8CH

      whatever… mine on 4.2.2 thanks to Shiny ROM.

      • Aaron

        Same here, and smooth as ever.

    • JoshGroff

      That’s a surprise? We all know VZW has to sign off on each and every update, and they take forever to do so. Either unlock and ROM it or stop whining and wait patiently.

      • Trusstopher

        I’m actually very happy on AOKP build 3, I just felt like pointing out the obvious/expected 😀

  • Charlie

    Thanks for posting these. My Nexus 10 stil hasn’t received the update OTA, so it’s nice to be able to go download it and be up to date. Now if only I could say the same for my VZW GNex…

  • Hmmmm what’s missing…. Oh yeah, TORO.. F U VZW!

  • Bryan Sparks

    Any idea when they’ll start pushing these OTA for the Nexus 10?

  • mjmedstarved

    Already running it on my GNEX (CDMA) with Jake Day’s JDX 13.0 (formally known as Jelly Belly), in tango with Lean Kernel and this thing fliiiiiiiiiiiiies.

    • Pdiddy187

      Which version of Lean Kernel works on 4.2.2?

      • mjmedstarved

        latest exp. does..

  • muffnman

    I love how it doesn’t even surprise us that the Verizon “Nexus” isn’t included. And by love, I mean HATE.

    • Jwhap

      Agreed. On a positive note, shiny ROM was updated same day!
