Verizon Galaxy Nexus Android 4.2.2 Update Leaks
By on March 5th, 2013

Over the weekend, Verizon started the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean soak update for the Galaxy Nexus. As the norm is, it was just a matter of time before the download link of the update made its way on XDA. The OTA update package is now available for all advanced Verizon Galaxy Nexus users to flash on their phone.

Before you jump over and start flashing the OTA file on your phone, make sure that you are running 100% stock Android 4.1.1 on your Galaxy Nexus. This is an OTA update package, and not a full ROM, so you need to be on stock. If you are on stock but with root access, you can simply flash the OTA update package using CWM or TWRP recovery.

Apart from the usual Android 4.2.2 improvements including lock screen widgets, quick settings, and a new gesture keyboard, Samsung and Google have also included a new radio. Early reports on XDA suggest that the new radio has helped in increasing the 4G LTE signal for quite a few folks out there.

Verizon should roll out the Android 4.2.2 update officially for the Galaxy Nexus within a couple of weeks, so if you are not too keen on installing the update manually, just sit back and relax for sometime.

The download link along with the relevant instructions can be found here.
