The 4.2.2 update is not yet officially out but a number of users around the globe already have it on their Android Google devices. Luckily, a reader posted on Yugatech steps on how to force the update to be downloaded on the Google Nexus 7. So I followed these instructions on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus (build JOP40D) running 4.2.1 and it worked as described!
- Go to Settings > Apps > All
- Scroll to find Google Services Framework and tap it
- Now tap “˜Force stop’
- Go back and tap Google Services Framework again
- This time tap “˜Clear data’
- Restart the device
As soon as Android boots and gets an internet connection, update 4.2.2 should automatically download (if not you can try to trigger it via Settings > About phone > System updates)
Once the download finishes, you’ll be prompted to install and the device will restart. Changes aren’t that exciting though:
- App download notification now shows the remaining percentage
- Toggles on the Quick Settings
- New sound notifications for Wireless Charging and Battery Low
There you have it. Very easy right? Thanks to @IANVARIVS for sharing this one.
