Nexus 7 Now Receiving Android 4.2.1 Update

As you know, this morning the Nexus 10 and Nexus 4 got their updates to Android 4.2.1, now it’s the Nexus 7’s turn. The Nexus 7 is receiving Android 4.2.1 via an OTA update, just like on the Nexus 10 and Nexus 4. Keep in mind that there’s nothing mind-blowing going on, as this is just a simple bug fix for the missing December month on the people application. The update also makes joystick and gamepads as HID devices. This update really isn’t a huge difference from what the Nexus 10 and Nexus 4 update brought to the table, but it is definitely welcome nonetheless.

Regardless of this being a minor update, it’s usually best to download it as soon as you can anyway. Updates are extremely important, and they really shouldn’t be put off.

Android Central has provided instructions on where to go to flash the update on your device manually. Those who are seasoned in rooting and flashing devices will be grateful to hear about this. You can find those via the source link below.

How is Android 4.2.1 treating everybody? Has the update introduced any new bugs or is it smooth as Project Butter claims it to be? Let us know in the comments below!

  1. Before the 4.2.1 update was installed in was ready to take my Nexus back to get a replacement due to its rebooting issue while I’m doing something. It’s been 48hrs now since the newest update and I haven’t had any issues yet. I’ll give it a week seeing as I have another 8 days left on my 28 no quibble returns offer.

  2. My nexus has been not letting me leave the home screen from time to time when I slide it to the unlock icon. I have to reboot to fix it.

  3. My Nexus occasionally reboots in the middle of doing something since the latest update was installed a few days ago.
