Google patch Nexus 7 with 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update

Google released Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean last week – it’s a minor update to 4.1.1 For those who use the Nexus 7 tablet, you should update to 4.1.2 with immediately. It’s not a huge update folks, and I haven’t seen any release notes flying around as yet to indicate whether there are any security and privacy improvements.

What I can tell you is, the main reason according to Google is that future variants of the grouper hardware will have a minor change in one of the components – notably the power management chip – that will not be compatible with the current 4.1.1 version.

Also Google has added a new landscape orientation for the Nexus 7 as well as fixes to bugs and some improvement to device performance.

For the techies among you, the build number is JZO54K. You can check this from > Settings > About tablet

Not everyone saw this update last week – I was one of them – hence this post being a few days late folks. If you are still not seeing this update > Settings > About tablet > TAP System updates

Safe surfing folks!
