Android 4.2.2 rolls out for Nexus 4, removes unofficial LTE

Yesterday, some Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10 users began seeing the Android 4.2.2 update pop up. The Nexus 4 was left out of that initial roll out, but only for a short time, with the update finding its way to the handset today. This update had a long-expected component included - it removes the unofficial LTE support found on the Nexus 4.

The Nexus 4 has had unofficial support for Band 4 LTE from the start, something that many expected to be removed already. According to the folks at AnandTech, with the OTA update that has rolled out to handset owners today, the feature is gone; when attempting to select the "LTE Only" option under Phone Information after the update will cause the setting to revert back to WCDMA Preferred.

Aside from that change, the Android 4.2.2 update brings a host of new features to your Nexus 4 device, as well as bug fixes and improved stability. The low-battery sound notification has been changed, as well as the sound notification that occurs with wireless charging. Users will notice a new download notification that displays download time, as well as the ability to toggle between on and off with wifi and Bluetooth by pressing their squares.

It's worth noting that after the update, AdBlock Plus will no longer work due to issues with auto-configuring the proxy. Users will get the update over the air, but can head out and manually grab it from Google if desired. It is approximately 51MB in size, a tad bigger than the 47MB update that rolled out to the Nexus tablets.
