Google rolling out Android 4.2.2 to Nexus devices

Google rolling out Android 4.2.2 to Nexus devices
Android 4.2.2 has now started rolling out to the Nexus 10, Nexus 7 and the Galaxy Nexus, according to a few Reddit users who were the first to notice.

The update is arriving over the air and while it’s not yet clear whether it brings much besides the usual bug fixes, one thing Google has promised is a Bluetooth A2DP audio streaming fix.

Weirdly no Nexus 4 users have yet reported to have seen the update arrive on their devices. There are a few screenshots to prove that, so this definitely seems legitimate. So if you have a Nexus device, check whether that update has arrived and don’t hesitate to let us know in the comments below.

Does such a small update come with a full system wipe or your apps and settings remain untouched?

When I upgraded from 4.1 to 4.2 apps were untouched but some settings were messed up. ......and I still can't see the update.

So even if it's a nexus the nexus 4(By LG) is still having late updates??

I like how he put "by LG" in parenthesis--as if there's another company that has made a Nexus 4. Noobs, these days *shakes head*

I meant that LG phones are verry late when it comes to updates, the optimus G is launching with android 4.0.4, and even if they made a nexus, it didn't improve (just joking) and also, some people don't know that a nexus 4 is made by LG, they know that a galaxy is made by samsung, but someone who saw my nexus 4 told me "is that the new galaxy" ( i was like, WTF)

having just switched from a verizon galaxy nexus to a nexus 4, im quite scared that the 4 has been left off this list. other sites are saying that the gsm galaxy nexus is seeing updates, but the nexus 4 is not. in what 'he11 on earth' scenario does that make sense???

I agree. How does the galaxy nexus receive the update before the nexus 4? Few days late or not, this is unacceptable for a flagship nexus device...

Right, because getting an incremental update a few days late will mean the death of us all. People feel so damn entitled about the silliest things.

you're an idiot.

14. g2a5b0e unregistered

Thanks. You're obviously a very mature human being. If not yet having received a 4.2x (incremental) update is the biggest of your worries right now, my suggestion is that you go get a life. Chances are most people won't even notice whatever changes it brings.

Talk about first world problems. This guy is pissed that he hasn't gotten an update that offers that nothing of any real substance & billions of people around the world are wondering when they're gonna get their next meal. Get a little perspective. We're not even talking about a major update. A few days, a week, or even a month won't kill you.

I hope they send a bug fix for the phantom charging in the Galaxy Nexus. In case you have no clue what I'm talking about:
