Had Enough 4.2 News? Here’s the Nexus 4 System Dump

Ever since the Nexus 4 and 10 were announced last week, things here at XDA have been moving around non-stop.  Not only were fora for these two devices added almost immediately, but we also learned that Android 4.2 would actually be an updated version of Jelly Bean. Tons of new first-party features become available with the update, such as a brand new (and very smart) keyboard as well as a camera that allows you to truly capture the essence of the world around you. However, as fun as new leaked APKs are, our developers are much more interested in more substantial leaks.

Thanks to a thread created by XDA Forum Member ingbrzy, we are excited to learn that there was a leak of the LG Nexus 4 system image floating around the Internet. Ingbrzy linked to this dump, and just like that, things were set in motion. Why is this important? Well, since the 4.2 version has not been officially released as of yet, developers who are itching to get their hands on it to start working on ports can now get a head start before Google officially updates the AOSP site with the new download. So, what can people expect out of this? Probably nothing yet as the ROM is specifically made for the LG Nexus 4. As such, there are compatibility issues that will need to be overcome before anyone sees a fully working port of this dump. Having said that, developers work quite quickly, so it would not be surprising to see some alphas or betas surfacing within the next few days, if not sooner.

If you are a dev and want to try your hand at porting this, please head over to the thread in the link below and download the system dump. Have fun, and welcome to the future!
