We’ve already seen the Android 4.2.1 update being pushed out to the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10— but now the venerable Galaxy Nexus smartphone is starting to get some love too. Thanks some keen eyes, we now know the minor Android 4.2.1 update is now available for the takju variant of the Galaxy Nexus.
Just yesterday an OTA update which addressed security issues was rolled out to the T-Mobile Nexus 4 and is now being pushed to other Nexus devices, including the Nexus 7, 10, and the Galaxy Nexus. The changes are unconfirmed at this point, but the update is known as JWR66Y.
Aside from the occasional legal quirks and roadblocks, owning a Nexus device is great because you’ll always have access to factory images of your device in case you ever need to completely undo any customization or just want to start from scratch.
I was hoping someone here might be able to help me with my Galaxy Nexus. My Mac, PC, or Linux box won't recognize my phone anymore. I've tried multiple battery pulls, cords, driver updates(Windows 7), an have wiped the phone.
Okay, so no Samsung Galaxy S III in hand yet, right? Soon though. Even though this is the case right now we continue to see offerings from the talented Android developers out there with things like S-voice being ported to other ICS devices.
