Android 4.2.1 update Nexus 4

Google has begun rolling out its Android 4.2.1 update over-the-air to the new Nexus 4 and Nexus 10, fixing a bug that caused the month of December to vanish from the built-in calendar when attempting to select it for a birthday or anniversary. The update comes with build number JOP40D.

It’s unclear whether this software is also arriving on the Nexus 7 and the Galaxy Nexus at this point. But we’re expecting those devices to get it very soon if they haven’t already. It’s also unclear whether this update also addresses a 2.5-year-old networking bug that Google confirmed it had fixed last Friday.

Android Central reports that after installing this update on the Nexus 4, the handset’s radio firmware remains unchanged from version 4.2, and the hidden feature that allowed the handset to connect to certain LTE networks is still present. Whether it still works is another matter; we’re still waiting for that to be confirmed.

If you haven’t already received Android 4.2.1 on your Nexus 4 or Nexus 10, then you should do soon. It often takes several days to reach all devices, so don’t panic if yours doesn’t get it right away.
