Android 4.2.2 arriving now for most Google Nexus devices [Updated]

Android 4.2.2 update - for some reason we don't have an alt tag here

Late last night, Reddit exploded with reports of Google Nexus users receiving the next official version of Android, which comes in at 4.2.2. While the update will surely vary a little from device to device, the file is reported to be 47.6MB for the Samsung Nexus 10.

Users are having mixed results when manually checking for the update via the standard OTA channels (SettingsAbout phone or About tabletSystem updates). It’s not showing up yet on my ASUS Nexus 7, but Nexus 10 and Galaxy Nexus users are both reportedly getting OTA notifications right now.

If you have a GSM Galaxy Nexus and haven’t received the update yet, you can download it and flash it manually using this download link and these instructions, which were originally written for the Nexus 7 but apply to all Nexus devices. As a reminder, if you have a Galaxy Nexus on Verizon or Sprint, then your update will come at some point in the near (or not too near) future – attempting to flash the update for the GSM version of the phone could brick your device. Be patient.

I haven’t been able to locate an official changelog quite yet, but Google did promise a fix for the Bluetooth streaming issues that are affecting some users. In the meantime, if you’ve gotten the update on your device, let us know below – especially if you notice any new fixes, enhancements, or even the introduction of new bugs.

    Misspelled ‘usuers’ :] I regret selling my Nexus 7 cause now I can’t see this update for my self.

    • D’oh! Thanks. Also, why’d you sell your Nexus 7??
