Android 4.1.2 OTA update rolling out to the Nexus 7, brings landscape mode

 

Right on the heels of Jean-Baptiste M. Queru’s announcement of Android 4.1.2 being released to Android Open Source Project, it looks like the same update is now hitting Nexus 7 devices via an OTA update as build “JZO54K.” The 31.3MB update seems a bit much just to enable landscape mode, so here’s hoping we’ll see a full change log soon. The notification itself pulled from the Nexus 7 simply reads, “improves performance and stability and fixes bugs.” Nexus 7 owners, keep looking for that upgrade notification, or you can always try to pull it manually through the Settings. Hit the break for the full statement from Jean-Baptiste M. Queru.

We’re releasing Android 4.1.2 to AOSP today, which is a minor update
on top of 4.1.1.

As a note to maintainers of community builds running on Nexus 7: please update to 4.1.2 at the first opportunity. Future variants of  the grouper hardware will have a minor change in one of the components  (the power management chip) that will not be compatible with 4.1.1.

The build number is JZO54K, and the tag is android-4.1.2_r1.

Enjoy,
Conley and JBQ
