Android 4.2.2 for Verizon's Samsung GALAXY Nexus leaks

Android 4.2.2 for Verizon's Samsung GALAXY Nexus leaks
Just last Saturday, we told you about a version of Android 4.2.2 being tested for the Verizon version of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus. It seems that this update has been pulled out of Google's OTA server from an enterprising XDA member, and the leaked update is now being made available to you. First things first. This is the actual version that has been made for unrooted and stock models of the handset to be sent out OTA. It is build JDQ39 and is not finalized yet. What it does do is give those with the Verizon branded Samsung GALAXY Nexus, some hope that the update is a comin 'round the bend.

If you're interested in giving this a spin, keep in mind that it is an update and should not be flashed over another ROM. You need to be running a stock version of 4.1.1 (JRO03O). Your phone also should be rooted with custom recovery, or be able to temporarily boot a custom recovery. You can grab everything you need from the sourcelink. But be warned! Remember what you mom said if you go ahead and flash this update. She said you would need glasses and grow pimples on your tongue. Or was that for something else? Anyway, you need to make sure that you know what you are doing here or else your Samsung GALAXY Nexus becomes a stock Android paperweight with no warranty and no recourse.

Umm... You know the Nexus 4 is Google's newest device right? This is the Samsung Galaxy Nexus & to be getting Android 4.2.2 is a VERY nice surprise. ESPECIALLY coming from Verizon that is.
