Galaxy Nexus testing Android 4.2.2, due mid-February
0. phoneArena posted on 05 Feb 2013, 14:14
We've seen leaks before that have been labeled as Android 4.2.2, and this new one isn't showing too much, but it does make it seem like the 4.2.2 update is closer to being released. The general consensus is that Android 4.2.2 will be the last bug fix update for Jelly Bean before Google announces and releases Android Key Lime Pie (theoretically 5.0, or 4.3) at Google I/O in May...

And like usual Verizon will be last one to get this update. Im thinking end of June to mid July unless makes a ROM for Verizon. Either way it doesn't matter as there will be better devices available : )

Nobody cares about carrier-crap devices. The standard international version is much better.

Its sad that Google always working on a new is rather than accumulate all the information that most 50 percent of android smart phones a still running gingerbread. Should all const rate on coming up with ideas to make it easer for older phones to at list get the latest os so there isn't a need to install roms or buy a recent phone every 6 month.

since processors these days can handle alot of load (RAMs and GPUs also), i guess we will see higher adaption rate for latest updates even on "low" to mid end devices...because those 50% that are still on gingerbread has low hardware compared to hardware these days, and i guess the hardware game will slow down now that we reached processors that can handle microsoft's windows.

there is an idea, it's called rooting. there's another one, don't buy from whatever OEM screwing you over with updates. if updates mean the world to you then may be you should start considering a Nexus. other than that, i can't see how Google could force OEMs to update their legacy devices, could you?

there's an official 4.1 leak and perfect 4.1 and 4.2 ROM's out there for the Razr.

But us non-geeky people don't know where to find that, or how to do it. I am not rooted.

I thought the official 4.1 update for the Razr was rolled out back in December?

Side note: Does the Galaxy Nexus work on T-Mobile 4G?

Yes, but only if you have the GSM version that was on sale in the Play Store. The Sprint or Verizon versions will not.

So he gets thumbed down for giving the appropriate answer to a question? I swear people are so immature.

Doesn't surprise me one bit. I think I'm used to it by now. A lot of crazies on this site.

If I root my nexus 10 will I get the update while still rooted?

this is y im starting to hate android late on updates I'm switching to iphone this year

hahaha This is sarcasm right? So you rather get a phone that gets very few updates, and when it does it makes your phone even less usable. Did you see the people complaining about the Iphone 5 with it's "updated" software? Don't remember anything about Google Maps being deleted, blah, blah, blah?

lets hope this fixes the terrible performance of the nexus 7 because since i have been on 4.2.1 i have been having constant lags and freezing and reboots. also scrolling in general is poor ie when on homecreen if i scroll to the left it will just bounce back to the previous page same with the notification panel if i pull it down it just goes straight back up and while your at it google why not actuall make the wifi and bt buttons into actual on and off toggles instead of just a shortcut

I have to agree. I think my battery life has worsened too. Trust in Google. They here our concerns and are cooking up a batch of android dessert for our pleasures!

i think it has too but dont think its become terrible..hopefully nexus 7 peformance is fixed in 4.2.2 and not in 5.0. i really enjoyed using the nexus 7 on 4.1 but since i have hated suing it and its why i have been interested in the note 8.0 and the ipad mini because if they dont fix this in 4.2.2 then i will sell it cause i cant keep on using it the way it is at the moment

I'm starting to think that the 8 inch or 7.85 is the perfect size. Hopefully the Nexus 7 will move up in size this year. I'd also like to see the Nexus 5 be 5 inches as well.
