Download: Android 4.2.2 (JDQ39) for your Nexus device here! (Occam, Takju, Yakju, Nakasi(g), Mantaray) [Updated]
We have uncovered some more details about the newest Android OS update from late last night, Android version 4.2.2. We’ve also grabbed some links for you all to grab the OTA if you aren’t seeing it for your device, which seems to be a lot of you. This post will be updated until all Nexus devices have OTA links.
Here’s a short list of what changes we’ve seen from the new update, we will post the official changelog when Google does:
- Bluetooth bug fix
- Android now asks to accept the RSA key of the computer before enabling USB debugging
- You can turn wi-fi on/off by long-pressing the quick-setting button, the same goes for bluetooth (Unconfirmed)
If you find anything else please comment below.
Now at the end of the article you will find link to the .zip’s so that you can update your device, but a few things need to be in order before you do so. First you’ll need to be on stock 4.2.1 as this update isn’t a full OS install. Custom recovery is OK (and somewhat preferred), but we aren’t sure about custom kernels (if it fails with a custom kernel, flash stock kernel and try again). Root should be ok as well but the update will most likely take away root, either use the OTA Rootkeeper app, or re-flash the supersu.zip. Now that that’s all taken care of here are the instructions.
If you have a custom recovery (ie. CWM or TWRP) just flash, but remember the prerequisites. From Android Police are these manual instructions; the instructions are geared toward the ‘Takju’ variant of the GSM Galaxy Nexus (Sold via Play Store), but just change the device name to ‘Yakju’ for GSM Galaxy Nexus (Not sold via Play Store), ‘Occam’ for Nexus 4, ‘Nakasi’ for Wifi only Nexus 7, ‘Nakasig’ for the 3g-enabled Nexus 7, or ‘Mantaray’ for Nexus 10.
Yakju tip: You can flash your phone to the takju version so there’s no wait for the next OTA, and it won’t damage anything (although you will be starting from scratch). Any GSM Galaxy Nexus can run it, Google Wallet is baked right into the ROM (important if you’re in the U.S.) and it puts you on the same software and update schedule as the phones from Google Play, which is typically earlier than any other update schedule.
Reboot your Galaxy Nexus, holding the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons while it boots up. Once you see the fastboot menu and “Start,” press Volume Up to navigate to “Recovery” and press the power button. Once you see an Android with a red exclamation point icon, press Volume Up and the Power button together, which will bring you to a new menu. Navigate to “apply update from adb.”
Connect your Galaxy Nexus to your computer with a USB cable.
Make sure you have a recent version of adb that supports the sideload command (if you don’t, download the latest Android SDK to ensure your adb is up-to-date).
Open up a command prompt (cmd in Windows, regular shell in Linux and Mac) in the same directory as the zip file you’ve downloaded.
Type in the following:
adb sideload 472aafeb9fe3.signed-takju-JDQ39-from-JOP40D.472aafeb.zip
You should see a progress bar, which will eventually hit 100%. At this point, your device is installing the update.
Reboot and enjoy! You are now running Android 4.2.2 on your Galaxy Nexus.
