Android 4.2.1 making the rounds; Verizon Galaxy Nexus continues to fall behind


Shortly after rolling out to most of Google’s last two generations of Nexus devices, Android 4.2.1, or the December fix update, has been pushed into the AOSP. Factory images, binaries, and all.

Hot on the heels of the over-the-air update for Android 4.2.1, factory images for the yakju and takju Galaxy Nexus variants have been posted, as well as images for the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 7 3G. The Nexus 10 should be added shortly. Binaries have also been posted for several devices, including the GSM Galaxy Nexus, Verizon Galaxy Nexus, WiFi only Nexus 7, Nexus 4 and Nexus 10.

Coming in as one of the smallest updates released for Android yet, 4.2.1 doesn’t feature much to write home about. There’s barely anything to the update–just a couple bug fixes. Still, that’s not likely to comfort Verizon-branded Galaxy Nexus users, who as DroidLife’s Kellex has pointed out, are officially three updates behind the GSM Galaxy Nexus and the rest of the new Nexus family. Hopefully that will change sooner than later.

Have you had a chance to play with one of Google’s new Nexus devices and Android 4.2.1? Did your trusty Galaxy Nexus receive the update? Be sure to let us know what you think in the comments below.
