The latest version of Android, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, is now being pushed to AOSP. It was only earlier today that the Android 4.2.2 update began rolling out to select Nexus devices. If you have a takju Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7 (Wi-Fi), or a Nexus 10, you should be able to update to Android 4.2.2 if you haven’t already. The update should be available through your settings page, but if not, just sit tight.

In AOSP, the build number for Android 4.2.2 is JDQ39 and its tag is android-4.2.2_r1. The Android 4.2.2 push is still fresh, so throughout the day, the source directories will continue to be updated. Here is a list of current directories that have been updated:

/device/common/+/android-4.2.2_r1
/platform/dalvik/+/android-4.2.2_r1
/platform/build/+/android-4.2.2_r1

This is great news in terms of roms. We should be seeing Android 4.2.2 pop up from a variety of developers like CyanogenMod and AOKP soon. This isn't as ground breaking as when Android 4.2 was pushed out to AOSP, but it's still pretty great. Android 4.2.2 is just a minor update that offers improved performance and stability, but who's complaining?

The Android Building Google Group should have a post by Jean-Baptiste Queru, the chief Android release engineer, as soon as the push is completed. There will also be a full developer changelog available. We will have additional details as soon as they surface, but in the meantime, you can check out our timeline below to keep up to speed with the Android 4.2.2 update.
