Android 4.2.2 Rolling Out To Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7 And Nexus 10 Devices


Update: An earlier version of this post incorrectly stated that the Nexus 4 was also receiving the update. At this point, the Nexus 4 has not yet received the update. 

Nexus 7, Nexus 10 and Galaxy Nexus owners should be on the lookout for the Android 4.2.2 update rolling out according to a report out of Reddit. There’s no word on what the build (JDQ39) entails, but Google did promise a fix to the Bluetooth A2DP audio streaming issue in the “next release” of Android software. Android Police has confirmed the rollout with a number of their readers via Google+ and says the update weighs in around 47.6MB. Our guess is that this is a standard “performance enhancement and bug fix” update, but we’ll keep an eye out for any notable changes.

    Bring it on, been waiting on this.

  • Brian Ace Brooks

    Didn’t receive it yet,my nexus 7 is waiting

  • Picchus

    This is what getting a pure Google device is about. Be the first to get the updates, fixes and improvements.

    • GinaDee

      Google botches these updates. All compatible Nexus phones should get these updates all at once. The N4 especially should be at the front of the line with the newest updates.

      • FILA

        Well I do know there is alot of bugs for the GNex since 4.2, that maybe the Nexus 4 doesnt suffer from, so if thats the case, the 4 owners are sitting pretty good. Me on the other hand have been waiting since November for bug fixes

  • Been waiting here on my N4

    • thinmanXXS

      Same here nothing so far.

  • rob

    Nothing yet, I’m still “up to date” on 4.2.1 apparently

  • qpinto

    It will be up soon and available to aosp. Give it a day or two and you can manually update. I’m curious to what it brings. I hope it doesn’t take lte out of the hidden menu…

  • Dion Mac

    I wonder if I’ll still get it since I’m on CM10.1, I’m thinking prolly not. At the same time, I don’t know that I care that much. Meh Shrugs.

    • Garrett

      Nope, you do not get official OTA updates if you’re using a custom ROM. Your device needs to be pretty much 100% stock.

  • Jake45554(

    There is a way to force the update. I’ve done it several times before. Just clear the “Google Services” within Apps Setup..

    • inchrist6

      how do u do that not familiar with that process

      • theking_13

        If you’re not familiar with it, you probably shouldn’t mess with it. Leave it as be till your turn comes to update.

        • If you know how, just say it. Or say you don’t know…lol, don’t tell that person not to mess up their device. They paid for it. You don’t know, you don’t know.

        • theking_13

          Lol, I do know actually. I dev’d a little on XDA. After seeing how hard it is for people to follow steps correctly, mess up their device, and then help them fix it, it’s better for people that aren’t familiar to learn about it themselves, rather than just being told what to do.

          Watch this great example of what goes down on XDA and similar sites DAILY.

        • I guess before you made that comment you were standing in the mirror saying you yourself….better late than never. lol

        • theking_13

          Lol? At least try and make correct sentences.

        • Typical response, I understand how you must feel though. But you will get over it.

    • Turo

      No go for me :-(


      It worked for me. Took several times. Ended up doing it again at 5am est and it pushed the update

  • Weird glitch on my nexus 4 they should fix.if your in gallery and slide to the camera and slide back to your photos.everywhere u touch the flash comes on.its still thinking your trying to take a photo?

    • steveb944

      You should report directly to Google. I already have for my Bluetooth and WiFi issues

    • Herb

      That’s a really weird bug. Have you tried a factory reset?

  • Dubious

    Does this update break the hidden LTE?

    • moonoverparma

      Doubt it.

  • moonoverparma says that this doesn’t include the nexus 4.

  • I have ZERO interest in a Nexus 4… pass! But comeback with a Galaxy Nexus 2 that supports wifi calling and you may get money Google. AMOLED screens spoils me…

    • theking_13

      They have never supported Wi-Fi calling, why would they just because you request it?

      • AndroidProfit

        Novel concept….respond to consumer requests and add additional features.

        • Ford_Thundercougarfalconbird

          I worked for a company that did that for one of their point of sale systems. The largest customers were able to add their own enhancements to their system. It was a giant clusterf**k. I don’t recommend it.

        • WW

          Ingenico, by chance?…I’ve had to support a POS for a large user of that brand and their internal “enhancements” crashed the device frequently.

        • Ford_Thundercougarfalconbird

          Nope. A floral wire service company, the one with a dove as their logo.

        • theking_13

          Except that would literally defeat the purpose of a Nexus device.

          Any carrier apps/functionality that is added to a phone, delays updates and bug fixes. The Nexus line is all about excluding the middle man, whether it be T-Mobile, AT&T, etc.

    • thinmanXXS

      That’s a T-Mobile add on. The nexus devices don’t support WiFi calling.

  • NYCTheBronx

    There is no update for the LG Google Nexus 4, oh week but for the other three devices there is. Doesn’t matter. Key Lime Pie will be
    possibly out in May or in summer. Come on T-Mobile, please hurry with the LTE Advanced roll out so I can go to my hidden settings and activate my LTE on my LG GN4!

  • NYCTheBronx

    So they have a mugen extended battery for the HTC One X and non for the LG Google Nexus 4? I don’t care about the bulkiness, I just want to have more time to enjoy my LG GN4. And when LTE Advanced is out, it’s going to drain the battery like crazy.

  • gnex user

    if you are rooted here is 4.2.2 ota for galaxy nexus GSM

  • AndroidProfit

    Anyone use the multi-user feature with the Nexus 10…opinions?

    • Julian C. Taborda

      Im getting a nexus 10 for my family soon and this is one of my favorite features that really draws me to the device. All the reviews I have read really do point to saying that its like having seperate tablets becuase everything is kept seperate

  • steveb944

    Gee thanks David for teasing 4.2.2 for us Nexus 4 users. I was hoping my problems would be over

  • mreveryphone

    Kinda off topic but what if Samsung or LG took their 5.5 inchers and made a nexus device out of them? You would get pure Google on a phablet, getting updates first on premium hardware. I’d buy it!

    • NYCTheBronx

      That would be cool. But I don’t think I’ll buy a phone that is more than 5 inches anymore lol. If LG or Samsung makes a Nexus devices, I hope it would have a 5 inch screen, 10-16mp camera, 3500-4500mAh battery and the ability to move your apps to your SD card or just have 32-64GB of internal storage. Now, I would totally buy that lol.

      • mreveryphone


  • AndroidProfit

    What happened to T-Mobile’s Q4 results? I don’t remember seeing them here…

  • Tim Moore

    And it still vibrates when I get an email even though I say to NOT VIBRATE. This has been going on since 4.2.1 and they still haven’t corrected this? I don’t want it to vibrate when I get an email. So dumb that it uses the global settings instead of the individual app settings for that crap.

  • pinoyz


    People with the Nexus 4 are starting to get the 4.2.2 updates now! People in XDA have uploaded the file to download the update if they do not want to wait for the OTA

  • prototipcars

    Guys try to force update by using the following steps. It worked on Galaxy Nexus when I did it 3 times in the row:
    Settings -> Apps -> All
    Google Services Framework
    Force Stop
    Clear Data
    Settings -> About ->System Update


    I got my update two days ago on my NEXUS 4 ,,,,,,,SWEETNESS
