Now that the Android 4.2.2 update is on the books, Google has taken to updating their codebase of android Open Source Project binaries, bringing the latest version to all currently supported Nexus devices. This includes the previously neglected Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 3G, as well as Verizon’s version of the Galaxy Nexus.
The absence of full AOSP support for certain Nexus models was a bit perplexing, especial the Nexus 4. But Google has been working their way toward this end. These binary files provide hardware-specfic drivers necessary for running a complete and functional AOSP build on any Nexus device. The latest build version is JDQ39 and can be found at the source link below.
