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.

Download: Android 4.2.2 JDQ39 for “yakju” GSM 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.  (more…)

How Many Updates Behind is the Verizon Galaxy Nexus? Four.

Over the last year, we have taken to pointing out publicly that the Verizon version of the Galaxy Nexus continues to fall further and further behind when it comes to updates. In fact, we created the idea of counting them out when the device fell three full updates behind other Nexus devices, a bandwagon that other sites appear to have jumped on. So since Android 4.2.2 is rolling out to the Galaxy Nexus (GSM version), we should probably update the count as it has officially reached four(more…)

GSM NEXUS 4.2.2

With an Android 4.2.2 (JDQ39) update rolling out in extremely small batches to the “takju” variant of the GSM Galaxy Nexus, some Nexus 7s, and even fewer Nexus 10s, links to files of each will undoubtedly begin to surface. The first is for the “takju” G-Nex, which is the version of the phone that you got when you purchased it directly from Google Play in the U.S. The version known as “yakju” was the original released at launch and is typically categorized as the international version, if you will.

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.

Android 4.2.2 JDQ39 Might be Rolling Out to GSM Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7 and 10

NEXUS 10 44.2.2

A couple of reports over at reddit and XDA this evening point to a rollout of a new update to the GSM Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10. The update, as one would expect, is Android 4.2.2. We have seen this build a couple of times now, though we had no idea when to expect it. That time could be now.

The reports aren’t all that clear as to what may be included. Some think that Bluetooth streaming could be slightly improved, however, some of the earlier updatees have mentioned that it’s not perfect. Other than that, we won’t know for sure until it hits our own devices.

We have checked multiple Nexus 7s, a Nexus 10, a couple of GSM Galaxy Nexus phones, and my Nexus 4 and have come up empty. If you see it, be sure to let us know. Don’t forget to try to grab the link to the update file as well.  (more…)

LightFlow Update Adds Pebble Support For Notifications, Makes Possibilities Mostly Endless

LightFlow, one of our favorite notification apps, received an update this morning that added support for the Pebble smartwatch (our review). In the app, you’ll now see an option to “Send to Pebble.” If checked, your Pebble watch will vibrate with a notification from your phone, through LightFlow. As you can see in the photo above, it’s even showing me comments on Instagram, something I wasn’t expecting it to do.  (more…)
