Nexus 4 system dump is out: 4.2 Jelly Bean apps, wallpapers and ringtones up for the taking

Nexus 4 system dump is out: 4.2 Jelly Bean apps, wallpapers and ringtones up for the taking
You probably just saw it coming: a few days after reviewers have gotten their LG Nexus 4 devices, a full system dump of the system has been posted online, so you can grab apps, wallpapers, ringtones and just about everything else.

The more crafty software wizards should be able to extract the apps and get them on their devices, but exercise caution as always.

Personally for us, we are happy to get the fresh new set of wallpapers as we’ve come to really like Google’s new wall art for Nexus.

You can get either the full 291MB system dump, or the apps (weighing 144MB), or finally the sounds and wallpapers that are just a couple of megabytes. Hit the source below for download links, and you can get the wallpapers straight from our gallery below!

Me too! I cant wait my Galaxy Nexus will be on 4.2 in a matter of days at the most. I already have gmail, camera, and the keyboard from 4.2 on my phone. Now I'm off to XDA/Rootzwiki to see what's up.

Nice wallpapers - not too distracting. I can't stand to have too much junk behind what I've placed on a page.

I currently have Sprint with a Galaxy s2 in a family plan and it sucks to know the Nexus 4 is only GSM but what I have been researching is that I can get any GSM device (Nexus 4) and use it in a Monthly Plan which is only 30 US dollars for 100 minutes unlimited text and Web 5GB . Which is perfect for me do you guys think that's a good idea ?

I'm seriously considering to pay the early termination fee on my sprint account move on to this phone and get t-mobile prepaid.
