    Did you install the update on a custom rom or stock rom?

    Is it actually available OTA then?
    I never got the 4.1.2 update OTA, even though the missus did.

    After updating, the folders in the row directly above the home button no longer seem accessible. Anyone else having that problem? I'm using Nova launcher so maybe that's part of the problem?

    Edit: Nevermind, when I checked Nova Launcher settings there was a new update which gives the problem.

    Considering 4.2 just came out, its probably app incompatibilities

    Nova's the problem I'm guessing


    Also rooted users, there is no system app check in this update, so it should work just fine for us.

    I'm not interested in the update YET... I too plan to wait until it is incorporated into PA... however... would someone who has DL'd the update (I'm only on 3g ATM) please be kind enough to post the 4.2 keyboard.apk?


    Ugggg... I asumed I could just pull the keyboard from the zip.... but not only is it odexed... (that part I saw coming) but its also in the form of a patch... :thumbdown: pita

    im on cm nightlies and just need to be patient. im sure cm will update to 4.2 within the next day or so... going crazy waiting for it tho. i got too much stuff on my tablet to justify flashing a stock rom and then updating to 4.2...

    I flashed the full factory image. Having multiple accounts to select from is very cool.

    Also love the (new?)quick settings. I don't remember that from the stock ROM

    If it's any consolation, I don't think it's as good as Swype beta - there's no long press option for numbers and symbols when on the main letters.

    I flashed it through the stock rom its cool for the first 10 minutes while you explore everything new but if you have multiple accounts it laggs quite a bit so i wouldnt recommend it that much :)

    Anyone have a copy of the adb files with the sideload command?

    Mine is old and dumb... (tried the ones included in the nexus tool kit... And the ones in my current sdk's platform tools) And updating the Android sdk over 3g just isn't going to happen :banghead::banghead::banghead:

    Hey, can anyone who has made the jump to 4.2 confirm whether or not an option to show the battery percentage appears for the notification bar/drawer now?

    I assume just the adb.exe, adbwinapi.dll &adbwinusbapi.dll from the newest version of the sdk.

    can u handle 40 mb it comes with the whole sdk (newest version) and i included the adb sideload command)
    PS: i included the Keyboard apk extracted from my nexus 7 just in case yout not ready :D
    SDK.rar
    Envset.exe is if you want to use adb directly from command prompt without having to "cd" to your platform tools folder

    keyboard.apk & odex? Because that was the whole point of this exercise... To update to 4.2, extract the patched keyboard, deodex it and then restore my backup and install the updated keyboard... Well... And to check out 4.2

    But at any rate... Tyvm. :)

    (On a side note.... This tab has a terrible data transfer rate, from pc to tab)
