MIUI has proven to be a highly desirable aftermarket firmware among the developer community, and today marks the initial release of Jelly Bean builds for the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7 and Nexus S. Currently, the ROMs contain no major bugs, which is good news considering previous Ice Cream Sandwich builds offered less than ideal functionality.
Shortly after the release of the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4, news circulated the internet suggesting that Google was working on an eight inch Nexus tablet. This news was all but confirmed with a photo that was found online. Google quickly squashed rumors though with a touched up photo that made it look like a Nexus 7. The idea of the Nexus 8 was dead.
Canonical is dropping Ubuntu touch support for a wave of Nexus phones and tablets, including the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7 (2012), and Nexus 10. Nexus 5 support is also on hold for the time being. Engineers confirmed the unfortunate news in a phone mail list, stating that the company was focusing all efforts on the newer Nexus devices.

In very similar Nexus news to what we found this morning, the Nexus 4 is now beginning to receive the 4.2.1 update as well. This update most notably fixes the infamous December bug. No other changes have been uncovered as of yet. The good news is that the baseband has remained unchanged so far thus still allowing LTE capabilities for the select few.
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.
