Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update available for the latest Nexus devices from Google

15 February 2013 by
Google has released a new firmware for the latest Android Nexus devices. Including Google Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 10 and Galaxy Nexus

Android 4.2.2 available for Nexus devices

The Android OS update will be available for download via the System Update during the next few days. We have already received and installed version 4.2.2 for our Nexus 7 tablet but not yet got a notification for the Nexus 4 smartphone. The 4.2.2 update will be available for Nexus 10 tablet, Nexus 4 and the older Galaxy Nexus.

The update is a minor one and it will only fix a couple of bugs and add some improvements. We particularly like the one where a long press on the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth icon in the Quick Settings panel will toggle on and off the respectively features. Google has also added a USB debugging white list security feature where it is possible to deny unauthorized access to the device when connected to a computer via a USB cable.

Hopefully, the update will resolve the problem we have with our Nexus 4 where it is impossible to switch on or off Bluetooth after a couple of days with Bluetooth usage

The 4.2.2 update will be rolled out in batches and most Nexus owners should have received the OTA update notification within days. If you are really impatient, the manual update could be a solution.
