Default Android 4.2.1

While being called Android 4.2.1 it apparently still displays just 4.2 on the Nexus 4. Either way the long line of swift updates begins

Android 4.2.1 update hitting Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 | Android Central

So far all that is known is that the missing month of December in the Calender has been added.

I tried to update mine this morning and it said it was up to date. Does it do these small updates automatically somehow?

Default you can force it to update.....i did.

Instead of waiting for it to be pushed, go to Settings, then Apps, then All. Next scroll down to Google Services Framework and clear cache and force stop. Then go back to Settings, About Phone and check System Updates. I had to do this 5 times for it to push, so keep in mind you might have to keep repeating the process. Did both my nexus 4 and nexus 7 a few hrs ago and both updated to 4.2.1. I updated mine over cellular network.

Default There's only a minor fix....

4.2.1 was an update to fix the December calendar set up under People that's it other than a little update for gaming.... that's why the update is only 1.1 MB. Otherwise its still same old 4.2 Jellybean.

Had to clear data and force stop like cvu524 said, but it would only download once I connected to wifi even though it's only 1.1mb.

Real annoyed it doesn't fix the issue with Email and Gmail apps vibrating every time I get a message even though they're set to not vibrate.. Assume its at least another 2 week wait for a bug update argggghhh

I would assume with it being so small it doesn't interfere with root or is that foolish?

I'm still waiting on my update, but if it removes root I know I will need to wait to update until I am at home and can reroot.

Default v4.2.1 not installing...

When I attempt to install the v4.2.1 update it is failing because I have modified my build prop file. Can someone please post their stock/generic v4.2 build prop file?

Thanks for your help...

Yes I use SuperSU but not the pro version so no survival mode was not on. It did not remove the app, I only noticed I had lost root when I tried to use rom manager to flash something.

Me either. Kinda not liking this slow roll-out thing, coming from an iPhone.

By the way I installed Voodoo OTA RootKeeper. I read at least one comment from an N4 owner who said it preserved their root.

I got my Nexus today and within 2 minutes of powering it on and connecting to wifi I got a notification to update. Got 4.2.1 installed, unlocked the bootloader, installed CWM, and rooted (in that order) within 20 minutes of holding the device. I feel accomplished for the day.

Man, I'm still waiting

I had my phone activated on the 14th, as soon as the Tmobile store opened. Even the people that ordered their phone a day earlier from Google Play didn't have their phones yet. And, the first day the update was released my wife got it. Our phones were activated at the same time . She didn't even care about getting an update, she only has the phone because I told her that is what she wanted, she isn't into technology at all.

If I don't have the update by Saturday morning I'm going to go looking for an update.zip file...

4.2.1 zip:

Just install it through CWM or TWRP. I prefer CWM myself, but either one will do.

I got the OTA today, didn't update. There was an error.

Tried to manually flash the update using CWM... Didn't work

I rooted using the first available method on the 14th, I think that during the process I flashed a boot.img that is causing an error. I think I'm going to have to flash back to stock, update, and root again. Probably going to be later this week before I get the time to do all that.

You could just flash a stock rooted 4.2.1 Android ROM:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2019243

Since it's deodexed it won't be able to receive future OTA updates, but it would seem you already have that problem. Given this is a Nexus device i'm sure it won't be more than a day before someone has a stock ROM for any new update that comes out.

4.2.1 still feels a bit buggy for me.

The gallery crashes; moving app on top of another to create folder sometimes doesn't work. Is anyone having the same issue?

I'll never get the hang of this! Chasing folder round the screen...

Is there a "trick" to putting icons in folders without them moving?

I was actually praising the Nexus 4 for not having that problem when creating folders
, mine doesn't jump around at all.

I've noticed if I move it very slowly onto another icon it works better.
