Official Android build numbers page hints at imminent 4.2.2 update for Nexus 4

nexus-4-jb

The latest update to the official Android documentation leads us to think that we could soon be seeing an OTA update to Android 4.2.2 for the Nexus 4.

Aside from a typo in the build number which reads ‘JDP39′ should read ‘JDQ39′, the interesting part is that the build number is followed by android-4.2.2_r1 for the Nexus 4.

If you’re a lucky Nexus 4 owner keep your eyes peeled for an update, or if you’re especially keen starting mashing that “Check for System Update” button!

        WP8 I can understand, but BB are you crazy man!

        Nothing wrong with BB man, I give everything a chance, no need to be close minded.

    I really really really hope this update adds USB OTG!

    • Graham Bae

      As far as I know the N4′s lack of USB OTG support is a hardware limitation. I think the USB port can’t supply the 5V needed for host mode.

        lol. Woke up to the update on my N4 this morning :)
