A member of the Android Central forums by the name of dmmarck has managed to get the Camera and Gallery apps from Android 4.2 working on Galaxy Nexus devices running Android 4.1.1.

Unfortunately the new Photo Sphere function isn’t quite ready yet, but we’ll be sure to provide updates as they happen.

Head on over to the forum thread to grab the APK, and be sure to read the installation instructions.

Update: Photo Sphere works!

Update 2: Android Police have released a flashable zip that enables Photo Sphere taking and viewing, as well as all of the new gallery features.

Update 3: Aaaand they’re gone.

    Since it is an apk, does that mean that it would work on most devices running 4.1.1?

      I can’t say for sure. Give it a try for us and see!

        It does work, I’m using it on my GS3 4.1.1

          Thanks Sarah!

      The flashable zip that I’ve just linked to definitely works on non-Nexus devices, and has all of the new features working!
