Nexus followers will love the new Android JB 4.2.2 binaries for different devices. Google is definitely showing its support for its Nexus Devices and is also planning to push to Android Open-Source Project or AOSP.
Although the latest Jelly Bean has been out since February, not many devices were fully compatible with it and the release of these binaries will open doors for many Nexus users such as the Nexus, 4, 7, 10 and the Nexus S to fully use and optimize the AOSP.
Other devices such as the Galaxy Nexus (on Verizon) and the Motorola Xoom will also be able to enjoy the latest JB by using these proprietary binaries.
So if you are someone who does not like changing devices all the time trust that these devices will always be taken care of and updated by Google and these just might be the Android devices that you are looking for.
The developers are advised to get ready because Samsung on the company's open source repository has started unleashing onslaught of kernel source of Galaxy S4. It has done so beginning with the unlocked phone editions (GT-I9505 and GT-I9500) and some other variant (SGH-I337M) which is targeted to Virgin Mobile Canada. In case you may not be are, the difference between GT-19505 and GT-19500 is the chipset.19500 is the Galaxy S4 edition which is Exynos Octa-powered but there is not official date of release which is attached to it. 19505 is the variant of Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 which will be available for purchase in most of the major markets of the world before end of the month. SGH-I337M is the version of Virgin Mobile Canada.
For those in the United States, there will not benefit from any of these developments because all S4 carrier branded versions in America have their unique and separate releases of kernel source and all will run different builds of software.
