Google Releases Android 4.2.2 Factory Images for Nexus Devices
Nexus devices are privileged when it comes to Android releases and it has been like that since Google decided to partner with HTC for the Nexus One. Now there are a number of pure Google devices on the market, including new releases like the Nexus 10 and Nexus 4.
Most Google Nexus owners don’t feel the need to stick with the factory ROM. What is the point of having a device that is so easy to unlock if you are not going to exploit its potential. While testing all the different software from developers, sometimes things can go wrong and you may want to come back to the stock version for a while.
Though Google wouldn’t tell you this, after a software update it is better if you factory reset your device, for better stability and performance. What is better then even a factory reset is flashing the entire ROM from one end to another, as Google provides the factory images. For Android 4.2.2, the version that brings along some fixes for Bluetooth and other issues, and also minor UI changes, the factory images are now available on the official developer’s website. Download the packages and if you know what you are doing you can install the corresponding one on your device.
