Google has just released the factory image of Android Jellybean 4.2.2 for its Nexus devices. The ability to download the new factory ROM comes on the heels of the official Over the Air patch for Nexus owners last week.


Although Google has yet to publish an official changelog, the 4.4.2 update ushers in a fairly decent number of stability and speed enhancements, alongside some UI tweaks. Other changes that have been noticed are: Bluetooth bug fixes, a more secure ABD, and a count-down to finish display for Google Play Store downloads.


Haven't gotten the update yet? No worries as not all users have gotten the update yet, but as the staggered global roll-out continues, all Nexus owners should see the patch very soon. Have you noticed any new features we missed? Let us know in the comments!
