Jelly Bean 4.2.2 has been rolled out for Nexus Series

Google has confirmed this morning that it is rolling out Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean to devices including the Google Nexus 4 and Samsung Nexus 10.

But there is nothing in the update and we cannot say it healthy update because this update only provides routine and steadiness fixes. There is also a fix related to streaming music over Bluetooth connection.

As Google has not given any more information regarding this update. If you are Nexux series user and if the update has not popped up on your Nexus mobile or Tablet you don't have to panic because Google is rolling out the update gradually to devices.

It's not surprising that the update doesn't deliver many new features, as Google is widely expected to announce the next major release of its Android mobile operating system, which is likely to be named Android 5.0, at its Google I/O conference in May.

But it is still unclear what Android 5 is going to deliver to its users. But from the speculation we can just imagine that Android 5 will have Google Now Widget with improved support for multiple accounts and twist user interface.

Below is a tutorial, provided by Android Police, which explains the manual process of installing Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean (JDQ39) on the GSM Galaxy Nexus.


Step 1: Reboot the Galaxy Nexus and hold the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons while it boots up. After you see the fastboot menu and "Start," press Volume Up to navigate to "Recovery" and press the power button.

Step 2: After you see an Android with a red exclamation point icon, press Volume Up and the Power button together to bring you a new menu. Navigate to "apply update from adb."

Step 3: Connect the Galaxy Nexus to your computer with a USB cable.

Step 4: Ensure you have a recent version of adb (Android Debug Bridge) that supports the sideload command. In case you don’t have, you can download the latest Android SDK (Android software development kit) to ensure that your adb is up-to-date.

Step 5: Now open up a command prompt (cmd in Windows, regular shell in Linux and Mac) in the same directory as the zip file that you've downloaded.

Step 6: Type the following:
adb sideload
(After doing this, you will notice a progress bar that will ultimately reach 100 percent)

Step 7: Once the process is complete, reboot the device.
Your GSM Galaxy Nexus will now be running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

But Before Installing Please Check This Out

- The device should be running on build JOP40D (You can find the factory image here)

- If you have a custom recovery, download the zip, move it to your device, and flash as usual

- If you have the stock recovery, keep the zip file on your computer and follow the instructions as mentioned above

In addition, the users must proceed at their own risk. cannot be held responsible for anything that goes wrong.
