Android 4.2.2 update rolling out to Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7 Wi-Fi/3G and Nexus 10 in Australia now

Nexus 7
Want the Android 4.2.2 update on your Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7 Wi-Fi/3G or Nexus 10 right now? Well reports are hitting that people in Australia are seeing the update right now after performing a brief workaround.

To force your device to udpate you’ll have to go to Settings > Apps > Scroll across to All > Google Services Framework > Press ‘Force Stop’ then ‘Clear Data’. Once you’ve done this go back to Settings > About Phone > System Updates then hit the ‘Check Now’ button and this should then prompt your device that the update is ready to go.

The Android 4.2.2 update brings with it some fixes as well as some updates, which Android Police have broken down :

  • Play Store downloads now show time left to download.
  • Long-pressing Wi-Fi and BT now toggles them in the notification Quick Settings.
  • More secure ADB thanks to the new whitelist.
  • BT bug fixes? I’ve seen conflicting reports whether this is fixed – citation needed if anything’s been done to it. Can you spot the right commits?
  • Update #1: Play a tone when wireless charging begins (if below 95% battery). Use new low battery and wireless charging sounds on Mako. Here are the new sounds: WirelessChargingStarted.ogg and LowBattery.ogg.

They’ve got the full run down on all the Commits to AOSP over on their article if you’re really in the mood to source out all the updates but for now just update your Nexus devices and enjoy and of course wait for the update to hit the Nexus 4.

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.

Updated my Google Nexus 7 32GB 3G and now my cellular / Telstra connection won’t work. The bars showing amount of service only turn blue when wi-fi is switched on, otherwise they are grey.

Any ideas?

How does Google decide which device gets the update now and who has to wait? My JB purchased 32gig WiFi Nexus 7 didn’t receive the OTA update until Sunday morning 17 Feb, despite many many attempts including clearing Google Services Framework. Is it because I’m in QLD and we are to stupid to have daylight savings?

You can force the 4.2.2 update to come through on the Nexus 4 by doing the following just like the old samsung galaxy’s

1. Go to Settings -> Apps -> All
2. Find Google Services Framework.
3. Tap on Force Stop.
4. Select Clear Data.
5. Head back to the Nexus 4′s Settings, go to About, and check for a System Update.
Note: only works on wifi atm

After updating to 4.2.2 I can’t update or install any apps from the play store???!!!??
Is it just me? Or does anyone else have the same problem… 🙁

Did you clear the Google Services Framework? If so, that’s the problem. Clearing it tells Google yo have factory reset your device. re-adding your account to the phone usually fixes it. But looks you’ve already figured that out.

Easy fix?

Just remove the main Google account…. Open play store and log in with the same account….. Simple as that

Not getting the ota update, how would I go about side loading? Links?

you need to use ‘adb sideload’ command using the Android SDK and the Recovery menu.

Link here for instructions (sorry for linking to another blog):

Wouldn’t work for a Galaxy Nexus though unless you changed your firmware to Takju.
