It is what the Nexus 4 users have been waiting for a long time. Android 4.2.2 is all ready to be downloaded and installed on Google’s Nexus 4. It has already made its presence felt on Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 for a while. The Nexus devices do not usually get the intimation on time, so if you do not want to wait, you can go through a series of steps to obtain the Android on your Nexus 4 by manually downloading OTA from Google.
To avoid irreparable damage to your device, you have to follow the given instructions carefully. First make sure that your phone works on build JOP4OD and has 54MB. You can begin the download of OTA files after which you can start installing the update with the help of custom recovery or sideloading. Go through these steps carefully to install the Android 4.2.2 on your device.
Switch off and start your device again by lowering the volume and power switch. Find the menu with the help of the volume keys. Now press ‘recovery’ with the help of the power switch. Once the red exclamation flashes, you need to press the volume key a few times while holding on to the power switch. You need to select “apply update from adb” which is now displayed.
With the help of a USB cable you can connect your PC to the Nexus 4. To get the latest version of adb which supports sideload you can download “Android SDK.” While in the same directory, you can make the following command and type: adb sideload de8b8d101614.signed-occam-JDQ39-from-JOP4OD.de8b8d10.zip . At this point, a bar will indicate the progress which will soon reach 100%. This completes the successful installation of Android 4.2.2.
