The much awaited Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update for Verizon Galaxy Nexus is finally surfacing. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus would be soon getting an update in bear future, although it is still not clear as to what the update might be. You will only find a mention of he update coming soon on Verizon’s website.
The update is in the hands of testers and the exact date has not been confirmed by the Samsung nor Verizon. But it is only a matter of time that we will see the update rolling out to the public. The valid update is still omitting Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update, the most recent version that has by now available on other Nexus devices in the U.S.

If you’re a Verizon Galaxy Nexus owner, then get ready to get some sort of update soon. The wireless carrier in the nation is already testing a mystifying JDQ39 build of Android 4.2.2 with some new radios. But some how, the testing is seen being done on hardware that runs on old kernel version.
It is still puzzling as to why Verizon isn’t updating the kernel and bootloader. Perhaps it is just their way of testing the update before making it public. Nevertheless, all Verizon Nexus owners should keep their eyes and ears open and see what the update has in store for you.
It is still not sure whether his update would mean a big jump to 4.2.2, but the update is already initiating a little excitement from the G-Nex crew. The version of Android that you currently on almost all other Nexus devices is 4.2.2. El Madhatter, a very old member of XDA reportedly has received 4.2.2 this week. The kernel sure appear to be rather old, but there could be a number of reasons behind.
