SOFTWARE DEVELOPER Google has released Android 4.2.2 Android Open Source Project (AOSP) binaries for every Nexus device except the Nexus One and Nexus S.
Google's Android AOSP binaries are intended for developers but are also picked up by third party Android ROM developers who do not want to go to the trouble of cobbling everything together themselves. Now Google has released Android 4.2.2 AOSP binaries for the Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 10 and the previous generation Galaxy Nexus.
Google had started releasing Android 4.2.2 AOSP but now it seems to have finished rolling it out to the stable of present Nexus devices and the previous generation Galaxy Nexus. The firm's latest release includes 3G versions of the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets, which previously were omitted.
The company did not release Android 4.2.2 AOSP for the Nexus S, which is still stuck on Android 4.1.2, and the Motorola Xoom, and it is not clear whether it will do so in the future.
Google releasing Android 4.2.2 AOSP binaries for the Nexus devices will help third-party Android ROM developers to bring their distributions up to Android 4.2.2. The firm's AOSP binaries are not for users looking to upgrade to the latest version of the Android operating system; Google releases Android OS images for that purpose.
