Here’s Android 4.2.2 unofficial changelog

by: Bams SadewoFebruary 13, 2013


Without so much as an official announcement, Google has started rolling out Android 4.2.2 to several Nexus devices. So far, the latest flavor of Jelly Bean is heading to two Nexus tablets, the Nexus 7 (non-3G) and Nexus 10, as well as the Galaxy Nexus (takju).

So, what exactly does Android 4.2.2 (JDQ39) offer? The official changelog isn’t out yet, but here’s what some folks have reported.

  • More secured ADB
  • Bluetooth audio streaming bugs fix
  • Download notification now shows remaining time
  • You can toggle WiFi and Bluetooth on/off by long-pressing them in Quick Settings
  • Performance enhancements
  • New notification sounds (wireless charging and low battery)

The last bit seems to be destined for the Nexus 4, but oddly enough, Google’s latest flagship phone is yet to receive the Android 4.2.2 firmware.

Of course, the list above is far from complete. Nexus 10 owners have reported that the tablet is now running more stable. It looks like Google has fixed the random rebooting bug that’s plaguing the device. Another thing that users might experience on 4.2.2 is an improved battery life.

Noticed anything else that hasn’t been listed? Hit the comments below.

  • Seems bit odd…last year nexus got it first than current year flagship
    Nexus 4…waiting

      Obviously there is a reason though. It’s probably due to fixes specific to the Nexus 4.

      LG well known as great slowpook, and this include all line-up their devices, and it looks so, that it great LG tradition also include Nexus 4 (LG made)

      • Chris

        The software on the nexus 4 is handled exclusively by Google. This is what being a nexus device means. So there is no LG in the equation.

        • tell that to my verizon galaxy nexus. 4 updates behind…

          • Your fault for being stupid and signing a contract with a carrier.

          • Kev50027

            That’s because Verizon controls the Galaxy Nexus updates for their version. It’s not a true Nexus device. Pissed? Hate Verizon? Join the party. AT&T treats their customers like crap too though.

      • LG controls nothing of software for the N4

    • go to settings, apps, google services and framework, clear data, stop, restart, should start asap

  • just minor update right? via

    Seems that in the upper and lower homescreen parts, some kinf of shades have been added for the Galaxy Nexus. Or is it just me? Don’t think so..

    Also, widgets dance when you are overlapping and one makes room for the new one them.

  • Just got the update for my Nexus 7, and I can say it feels WAY more stable than 4.2.1. It also feels faster and smoother. I don’t know what Google did, but they did it right.

  • REDlawpy

    I’ve just received the update to 4.2.2

  • Chase Florell

    Looks like that pesky camera problem was fixed too. on 4.2.1, if you press the shutter button and slide your finger off (not lift it), the camera quits taking pictures until you switch to video mode and back again. Now in 4.2.2, that appears to have been resolved.

    Does anyone know if there is an official “Release Notes” area?

    Got it for my N4 last night….

  • Any idea when they will resolve the BTLE issue?
