Official Android 4.2.2 OTA Update released now for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus GSM, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10

Android 4.2.2 OTA Update launched for GSM Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 10 and Nexus 7

Google+ and Reddit users confirmed that the Android 4.2.2 OTA update has been pushed earlier today for the GSM Galaxy Nexus phone and for the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets. It as the Android 4.2.2 JDQ39 build number and the XXLJ1 baseband version.

There aren’t too many users reporting this news which seems to be legit, as several Google+ users are confirming it with screenshots showing the final OTA update firmware number. There isn’t an official changelog of the official update but it should be featuring the Bluetooth A2DP audio streaming fix and some other small changes. You should expect more stability improvements and some other tweaks for the general UI and battery life.

The Nexus 10 tablet’s Android 4.2.2 update measures 47.6MB in size, which shouldn’t be any different from the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 versions. If your device got the notification then you can leave a comment at the end of this post. Also, you can tell us if you think that your Nexus device runs faster or better than before. As I’ve told you already, there aren’t too many changes and no UI overhaul, as the next major update expected is the Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.

The Android 4.2.2 JDQ39 build Update hasn’t been pushed for the GSM International variant of Galaxy Nexus I9250 and Google Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. The US variants of Galaxy Nexus are still waiting for the first Android 4.2 update. ┬áNexus 4 users are still saying that this update has not been launched for their smartphones, but this shouldn’t last long as the Nexus tablets already got theirs.

Android 4.2.2 OTA update notification is being launched for stock devices only and if you’re on a rooted phone, and running a custom ROM, then this notification might not be sent to your device. That is why you should return to our website in the next days, as we will post a tutorial on how to update your device using the Android 4.2.2 XXLJ1 firmware zip and flash it using the manual method.

Update your phone and tell us in comments if you’re device works faster than before and if your GSM Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7, Nexus 10 battery is better than it was for the Android 4.2.1 / Android 4.2 ROM.

UPDATE: ‘How-to guide’ for manually updating the GSM Galaxy Nexus ‘takju’ to Android 4.2.2 JDQ39 build is available HERE.
