Give your Galaxy Nexus a Taste of Jelly Bean 4.2 With New Google Apps

November 6, 2012 - Written By Tom Dawson

The latest version of Jelly Bean might only be a pack of feature updates and some polish but it really does make a solid release of the platform and as usual there’s some tweaks made to the core Google Apps within the OS. Sometimes, it’s these tweaks that are part of Android that some of us look forward to the most for instance, an improvement in GMail might mean quite a bit more to us than a new camera feature. For GMail fanatics like me, you’ll be glad to know that it’s not just the Photo Sphere and Gesture Typing that have made it into this pack, put together by @KillDroidHack, it comes with all the GApps you’d associate with an Android. So, with this one pack you can give your Galaxy Nexus a taste of Android 4. 2 with GMail, Calendar etc found on the Nexus 4.

Google Wallet is available as an apk, thanks to OMGDroid’s Keyan as well but, we’re thinking that you already knew this, right? There’s word that this will only work with the Galaxy Nexus and if you’re going to try it on something else then please make a backup first as there’s no telling what could happen. As for myself, I haven’t tried it on my One X running AOSP but, I’m going to see what I can do with something like this later on. There are a lot of new features coming to Android 4.2 but, for me it’s the tweaks to the OS that have me more excited than anything. Let us know if you used this and what you’re really looking forward to from Android 4.2!
