Verizon Galaxy Nexus Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean JDQ39 Update Changelog

March 20, 2013

Verizon Wireless posted the full changelog for the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OTA update that should already be rolling out in phases to the Galaxy Nexus. As expected, the JDQ39 upgrade introduces significant, new features like Photo Sphere, Notification Panel enhancements, LockScreen Widgets and Gesture Typing to Big Red’s LTE variant of the Galaxy Nexus. However, we also found one entry in the changelog that seems out of place. Verizon mistakenly mentioned a “Photo Display” feature, which enables users to mirror their device’s screen onto an HDTV using a wireless adapter. As many Galaxy Nexus users know already, this smartphone does not have Miracast functionality, so wireless mirroring is impossible. Check out the full list of changes below.
