Android 4.2.2 leaks (JDQ39) for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus for your downloading pleasure

Android_4.2.2_Verizon_Galaxy_Nexus_Update

Remember that leak of Android 4.2.2 (JDQ39) we saw over the weekend for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus? Well thanks to a little help from XDA member oldblue910, the download is now available for you to install. Now it’s unlikely that this is the final version of the build, but that doesn’t mean you can enjoy a little 4.2.2 goodness. You don’t need to be rooted, but if you are, you need to be running 100% stock Android 4.1.1 (JRO030) in order to apply the update.

Is Verizon prepping an Android 4.2.2 update for Galaxy Nexus users? Sure seems to be the case

Android_4.2.2_Verizon_Galaxy_Nexus_Update

 

If you’re a Verizon Galaxy Nexus owner, then it looks like you’ve got some sort of update on the way… which we were already aware of and expecting. Reports are coming in that the nation’s wireless carrier is currently testing a mysterious JDQ39 build of Android 4.2.2 which seems to feature some new radios, but unfortunately seems to feature an old bootloader and old kernel version.

Why Verizon isn’t updating the kernel and bootloader beats us— but maybe it’s just part of its extensive testing before rolling out to the masses. Nevertheless we’ll certainly be keeping our eyes and ears open to what Verizon has up in its sleeves for you G-Nex users out there.

Do these Tweets mean the Verizon Galaxy Nexus is about to get an update? Probably not

Verizon_Tweet_Galaxy_Nexus_Update_01

Owners of the Verizon Galaxy Nexus got excited when a Tweet from a Verizon Support rep (LH) sent yesterday stated that Samsung was going to push an update out, but didn’t have any other information. Speculation is that it will be Android 4.2.2 or at least 4.2.1. Tweets from Verizon support should always be taken with skepticism as there are countless examples of mistakes and miss information.

Let’s take a look at this tweet. They said that Samsung is going to push it. If an update does occur, we already know it will be Google, but that could be an honest mistake, so I will give him or her the benefit of the doubt. A little later another rep (EO) tweeted..
