Core Android 4.2 Apps and Gapps on Any Jelly Bean Device

Ever since Google revealed Android 4.2, we have seen several apps from Android’s latest version surfacing here at XDA. Now that the Nexus 4 system dump has been out for a while, things are only ramping up. Recently, Android hacker Kill Droid Hack extracted all core Android 4.2 apps as well as the latest Google Apps from the Nexus 4 dump, deodexed them, and ported them for installing on any device running Jelly Bean 4.1 or later.

The apps in the package include Camera, Desk Clock, Chrome, Maps, Street View, Gmail, Play Store, Play Music, Google Talk and all other core Google Apps and Android system apps. In addition, all the required libraries are also included in the package for functionality.

To make finding all the 4.2 apps easier for all of us, XDA Senior Member sharingan92 has posted a forum thread where you can find all these apps and more. So head over there and grab the latest Jelly Bean 4.2 goodies for your device running 4.1 or later.
