Android 4.2.1 Factory images added to Google developers page


With the OTA Packages now winging their way out wirelessly to the various devices you may or may not have been prompted to update your device. We’ve added the links to the various OTA packages as they’ve appeared but now Google has added the factory images for the Nexus 4, 7, 10 and Galaxy Nexus to the Factory Images page.

In case you don’t want to do a full flash, the various Over The Air Packages are available here :

These factory images are one of the many reasons I only buy Nexus phones and tablets, the easy ability to flash back to stock is a welcome one when you’re flashing ROMs and various hacks which can and at various times, do go wrong. If you need them head on over to the factory images page and grab the image you need.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Factory images are pretty annoying (perhaps useless) with their lack of Australian English..

I could no longer ignore the 4.2 upgrade notification on my GNex and installed it this morning. Notification of 4.2.1 came up soon after. It’s only 900 Kb or so.
