Nexus 4 Android 4.2.2 update available OTA, Galaxy Nexus Yakju also getting it

by: Chris SmithFebruary 13, 2013


The Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update is slowly rolling out to most Nexus devices out there. In fact, if you happen to own a Nexus 4 and/or Galaxy Nexus Yakju model (therefore a GSM international version) you should know that your Android 4.2.2 upgrade is right around the corner.

Nexus 4

You’re looking for build JDQ39 which measures 51MB in size and should be available over-the-air, although it can also be manually installed by grabbing this link right here.

Galaxy Nexus Yakju

Again, you’re looking for build JDQ39, but you have to be coming from Android 4.2.1 build JOP40D to install it on your GSM Galaxy Nexus version. Here’s the download link that you’re looking for. If you have any issues you can always check the xda-developers threads listed below in the Source section for more support.

Have you upgraded to Android 4.2.2 already (here’s a changelog for this new Jelly Bean version)? Did you notice any particular improvements?

      I think it depend on nexus serial number, i bought 2 nexus 4, one with the lower serial number can be update ota but another one not founf any new update.. Patiently waiting will be the solution

  • I haven’t received any shit from Google yet. Both my Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4. Only American users can get the taste of it first!

      Using it in india though…but no ota update yet

      • Min wasn’t purchased from Google Play, i purchased from an online shop, but still no update. I’m talking about European version of it

      Because yakjuXX are the versions supported by Samsung, not Google. If you want the update, flash the yakju or takju(yakju with Google wallet) build on your device. Just google for factory image nexus.
