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.
For the first time in a long time, Google announced a new version of Android, but didn’t release it for Nexus devices right away. Those of you with a Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (old and new), and a Nexus 10 will have to wait a few weeks until Google pushes it out.
If you find yourself needing a Kit Kat fix right away, then look no further than Paranoid Android.
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 always thought the advantages of rooting (non nexus devices) would be just to get the latest android software on your device since it never got the latest updates. With nexus, updates aren't a problem. So what would be the advantage of rooting a nexus 4? better battery life (if so, how much)? changing the look of the notification bar and on screen buttons?
I just got a nexus 7 and am impressed with the pure android system with no Sammy uis and was wondering how much the nexus 4 is? I looked on Google but it didn't show a price. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place. I had a s3 and I really liked it but now I'm thinking of going to the nexus. Only thing that worries me is it being an lg I've had bad experiences with lg phones.
