The Android 4.2.2 has been released several days ago to GSM Galaxy Nexus device along with the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets. Now, the time for the Nexus 4 has arrived to get the OTA update to JDQ39 Jelly Bean 4.2.2 Firmware.
It isn’t a major update but only some small improvements. Also, it has been reported that the unofficial LTE support has been revoked when users updated their devices to Android 4.2.2. The OTA update has been pushed to Nexus 4 devices via notification and you can update it only if you have it, or you can choose to sideload the update manually using the link at the end of this article.
New alerting sounds, Toggle from Quick Settings, App Download notifications are now telling you how much time is there left until the app is downloaded completely. There are numerous other small fixes and tweaks that should make your device work faster and better. There aren’t any reports regarding the battery life of Nexus 4 on Android 4.2.2.
Also, the firmware version has been changed to JDQ39 because the update comes with a new radio. I don’t think that there are any other changes done to this part of your phone’s firmware. In order to get a better idea on how is this Jelly Bean 4.2.2 working on your Nexus 4, you should install the update and test it.
The Android 4.2.2 JDQ39 firmware update might be the last one before Google decides to launch the official Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie OS, which will also be a major one and you should get tons of new features when that happens. Until then, you should test this new Jelly Bean update and then tell us in comments if you think that your phone is smoother or working better with Android 4.2.2 update.
