November has been a rather busy month for Google. After rolling out the Android 4.2.1 software update to the trio Nexus devices – the Nexus 4, 7 and 10 – earlier in the week, the software giant then pushed out the same Jelly Bean update to the GSM Galaxy Nexus. Now, you can find the Android 4.2.1 factory images for the devices on Google’s website.
We’ve seen Google pushing out the “December bug fixer” update to the Nexus 4, 7, and 10 just a few days back. Showing once and for all how it pays to go the Nexus way, the Galaxy Nexus has now joined the ranks of other Nexii that sport the latest Android software. The Android 4.2.1 update (build JOP40D) is now rolling out to the GSM Galaxy Nexus, both takju and yakju variants.
Android 4.2.1 started rolling out earlier today to the Nexus 4, 7 and 10. If all you want to do is use your device, that’s fine. Those who want to dig deep into the code will be happy to know that now the source code for Android 4.2.1 is available as part of the Android Open Source Project (AOSP).
We reported a few days back that Google is preparing a fix that will bring back December to devices running the latest Jelly Bean flavor by the end of the year. Now the Android 4.2.1 software update has reportedly reached several owners of the new Nexus devices.
