LG Nexus 4 Android 4.2.2 Update Has Its Downsides Too

By  | 

The LG Nexus 4 has been a very popular device since it was released a few months ago. Some users have been able to get the device from the Google Play Store and have been pleased with the device thanks to its superb specs. Now there is news that the Jelly Bean update to 4.2.2 has started to roll out and apparently it kills off the LTE that is of course undocumented.

The news about the update follows after we heard it was released for the Google Nexus 7 and 10 had received the update.

Android Central says that the update does come with some bug fixes and it has the build number of JDQ39 and is 54MB. This could well be the last update for Jelly Bean before we see the release of Key Lime Pie, which is thought to be coming out at the Google I/O event, which will be held in May.

Just after the LG Nexus 4 was revealed people found out that it had a sleeping 4G LTE chip on Band 4, which could be used with a tweak. However the latest update to the OS will do away with the unofficial LTE.

The update comes with a baseband software image, the delta update, and now the LG Nexus 4 will not attach to Band 4 LTE. The device will also change back to WCDMA if you choose LTE only. Owners who want LTE on their device are being advised not to make the upgrade. So have you made the update to Android 4.2.2 yet?
