Nexus 7 owners, it’s your turn. Earlier this evening, before many countries even had access to Nexus 4 or 10 orders, Google began pushing the Android 4.2 (JOP40C) update to the Takju Galaxy Nexus. After some patient waiting, it appears the Nexus 7 is now ready for an update as well. In case you don’t feel like waiting on the OTA though, we’ve got the download link and some super-easy instructions for manually updating your favorite 7-inch slate.
That didn’t take long, did it? After the first Nexus devices shipping with Android 4.2 have started going for sale in certain parts of the world, the Android 4.2 OTA for the GSM Galaxy Nexus is starting to roll out. Once one knowledgeable user gets their hands on the OTA, they make the direct download link available for everyone else, and that’s what we’ve got now courtesy of the users over at XDA.
