Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean – that’s new

Google has released Android 4.2.2 yesterday, Tuesday for some Nexus models. The company based in Mountain View has held with respect to the innovations still a little overcast. Yet now some new features are known, which we have summarized for you.


Android 4.2.2 – apparently finally more speed for the Nexus 7

On upgrade to Android 4.2, Google has missed a number of bugs be removed prior to release. As one of the major bugs well, the performance can be viewed at the brake Nexus 7, which did not observe a few users. Android 4.2.2 seems to be the Nexus 7 a tangible performance boost. On my Nexus 7, the system feels after manually importing the incremental updates to quite liquid. Final, this can be confirmed only after a few days of regular use.

Bluetooth bug: Android 4.2.2 fixes bugs

After the update to Android 4.2, the owner of a Nexus 7 complained about interruptions in the transmission of audio data that has been sent via Bluetooth to speakers.

Extended Quick Settings


With Google Android 4.2.2, the Quick Settings, or on good German “Quick settings bar” to practical functions expanded. You can now, WLAN and Bluetooth issue directly from the Quick Settings with a long press on the respective icons on and off. So far, the two symbols acted as a shortcut to go directly to the respective function settings.

With this change, unfortunately some chaos comes in the quick menu bar. Some of the icons are only for information (eg, the power indicator), some take the user directly to only the relevant system settings and some even have dual functionality.

Notification Bar: Download with progress


That Google is also attention to detail apparent in the new progress bar in the notification bar. With this now not only mittles blue bar will display how far the download has progressed, but also how many percent were downloaded and how long it takes until the download is complete. For small apps, this feature is probably not useful for music, videos and large documents, it may turn out to have practical.

Other new features in Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean

How AndroidPolice further reports, Google has implemented a so-called USB debug whitelist as a security feature. Is the USB debugging mode enabled, on your smartphone by connecting to the computer inserts a query, to be acknowledged by the user. In this way, a possible unauthorized access can be blocked by “adb”.

This feature will only apply if the smartphone or tablet is backed by numeric code, unlock or FaceUnlock. The thief knows the access code, it comes easily to the data or have the ability to confirm the connection request.

As a last very small new feature Google has added two new system sounds, the sound when you put the smartphone Nexus 4 on a wireless charging station.

    Ever since I updated from 4.2.1 to 4.2.2 my nexus 7 doesn’t charge when on in my car. It shows that its charging but the battery still drains. I have a USB charger from media bridge that is made to charge android tablets at 2.1A in AC mode. Before the update it would add charge while using apps like GPS but now with the 4.2.2 update it looses charge while plugged in and on with no apps running. Is there a way to fix this? Or can I downgrade back to 4.2.1. I use it a lot in my car for GPS and really need it to charge while in use. Also it seems to me that some apps are loading slower too but I’m more worried about the charging thing.
