Google posts Android 4.1.2 images for a variety of Nexus devices

Google has gone ahead and fulfilled its promise of providing stock images of the latest version of Android for its various Nexus devices. These are basically templates for clean versions of the software in case one, for whatever reason, has to reset his or her device after a corruption or crash.

The latest version of Android is 4.1.2. These devices include the yakju and takju versions of the Galaxy Nexus, the soju version of the Nexus S (AWS version), as well as the Nexus 7.

Unfortunately for Canadian Galaxy Nexus users, these images are not directly compatible. One would have to change his or her Nexus to a yakju from a yakjuux, which we’ve detailed in the past.

Google has also added an Android 4.0.4 image for the obscure Nexus Q media player. Attendees at this year’s Google I/O took one home, but the product was delayed indefinitely shortly thereafter, citing ‘retooling’. This will be welcome news to anyone who tinkered a little too much with their device, only to have it brick on them.

You can check out all the details, and download the images, at Google Developers.

      Because Android decided to use a real mapping system. Go back to your genius bar and try and get directions out. Good luck.

    CM10 has already integrated this into some of its Nexus device updates =D

    I’m going to wait for SlimBean though as I found that custom rom to be the best of the 3 (others being AOKP and CM10) when it comes to JB cusomization.

      SlimBean 2.7 (JB 4.1.2) already out, check their website http://www.slimroms.com

  • Aaron

    Anyone know the landscape orientation in the launcher is limited to the Nexus 7, or if it works on all devices?

  • Not a bear

    Anyone know if they’re putting an update out for sojua?

  • techno

    Will this work on wind?

    • mehmeh

      If you bought the Galaxy Nexus in Canada, it’s a yajuux. So it won’t work unless you do some trickery.

  • Ben Bernanke

    I just downloaded the files and installed it on my galaxy nexus! Loving it!

  • Billy Williams

    Does anyone know how to update the bell galaxy nexus.
    I tried the method of clearing the Google framework. Then changing the date but update did not happen.

    • AndroidRootGuy

      If you haven’t move to a yakju build (search how to get there) on your galaxy nexus, then don’t expect this to show up on your phone anytime soon. You are dependent on samsung canada to send it out.

  • billywilliams

    i wish they would create a download inorder to have one version of the nexus. i dont think you should hsve to chsnge the version to get updates. This is especially true for those of us that dont have the skill or knowledge. You dont wsnt to risk bricking your phone.
    You dont expect that when you want to update your phone it is going to be complicated.

  • billywilliams

    isnt it complicated to move to the yakju build. i am just a newbie so it that could brick my phone.
