Following yesterday's Android 4.2.2 OTAs to various Nexus devices, Google today followed up with the push of all 4.2.2 open source code changes to AOSP. There is a lot here to parse through this time around compared to the minor 4.2.1_r1.2 commit from 10 days ago.

We've already identified some obvious user-facing changes, which we'll post about separately soon to keep it clean and organized. The purpose of this post is, as before, to find the low-level changes that may not be obvious.

While the official OTA update to Android 4.2.2 began rolling out to the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, 7, and 10 last night, you may not have received it yet. We already posted a link for the Galaxy Nexus takju build, but now we've got a couple more to share.

Update: JDQ39 from JOP40F for the Nexus 10 added.

  • Nexus 7: Android 4.2.2 update (JDQ39 from JOP40D, 47.7MB) (Note: Wi-Fi model only, aka grouper/nakasi)
  • Nexus 10:

Your device needs to be running the JOP40D build in order to flash the updates, doing so from another build will probably just fail, but we wouldn't attempt it either way.

Nexus owners may have a reason to stay up tonight, as a couple of Reddit users report that Android 4.2.2 has begun rolling out to the GSM Galaxy Nexus and the Nexus 7.

There's not much word regarding what the update (which carries build JDQ39) includes just yet, but readers may remember that Google promised a Bluetooth A2DP audio streaming fix in the "next release" of 4.2 after 4.2.1.

Update: Here's The Android 4.2.2 JDQ39 Update For The GSM Galaxy Nexus [Manual Installation Instructions]

If you're in the market for a Nexus 7, don't want to pay full price, and yesterday's 1SaleADay deal left a bad taste in your mouth, eBay might have what you're looking for.

Through eBay's Daily Deals, seller Tiger Direct is offering up refurbished 16GB models for $169.99 shipped. That's about a $30 discount over the Play Store's price (plus shipping).

Update 2: 1SaleADay has now decided that its 16GB Nexus 7 was worth $250 originally, as opposed to the $260 'list price' when we posted this story. At least they're getting closer.

Hey, are you the sort of person that likes getting a bad deal disguised as a good deal on the internet? No? Me neither. But 1SaleADay seems to be looking for the poor souls uninformed enough to believe a refurbished 16GB Nexus 7 was worth $260 new (yes, they couldn't even be bothered to say $250), and that this refurb is an absolute steal at just $190.

After months of speculation, pre-orders, and cameo appearances, it's finally here (kind of) – one of the precious few official Nexus accessories users have ever been able to purchase: the Nexus 7 Dock. After snapping one up when they appeared at B&H, I was one of the unlucky handful to receive a "we regret to inform you" email, noting that the dock was not, in fact, available yet.

Stop holding your Nexus 7 in your hands like a chump and check this out. These industrious modders have built and installed complete Nexus 7 mounting systems in a Subaru STi and Toyota Celica. The Toyota owner even created a launcher skin to go with the mod. The skin, of course, is based on Knight Rider (seen below).

Celica Mod

The modder with the Toyota used Nova Launcher, UCCW, and Simple Text to build a simple Knight Rider UI  that gives access to the most commonly used functions.

With CM10, the CyanogenMod team started pushing out M-Series releases, which are designed to be a more stable alternative to nightly builds. In fact, CM cites these builds as being "mostly stable and ready for everyday use."

We saw two runs of M builds show up for CM10, which were followed by the stable release a few weeks later. Now, the team has released the first M build of CM10.1 for several devices:

  • Samsung Captivate
  • Samsung Nexus S (+4G)
  • Samsung Galaxy S3 USA models (D2*)
  • Samsung Galaxy S (galaxysmtd/galaxysbmtd)
  • Google Nexus 7
  • Google Galaxy Nexus (all variants)
  • Google Nexus 4
  • Google Nexus 10
  • ODroid U2
  • Samsung P3100, P3110
  • Samsung P5100, P5110

Of course, this is just a starter list and more devices will be added in the coming days/weeks.
