JWR66V Android 4.3 for Google Nexus Devices Rolling Out OTA

Rafia Shaikh

The latest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean was announced by Google at a press event yesterday, and the OTA software update has started rolling out for all the Nexus devices. Initially, Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 10, and Galaxy Nexus i9250 are receiving the over-the-air 4.3 JB update.

The JWR66V Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update for Nexus devices can be directly updated over-the-air, and for those who cannot wait until their region / device gets the update officially, Android 4.3 can also be installed manually. We will update with tutorials as soon as the direct download links of the OTA are made available for Nexus and other devices.

Some of the features in the Android 4.3 JB include OpenGL ES 3.0 support, Bluetooth Smart, dialpad auto-complete, and improved support for user-accounts (only works on Android tablets). Rolled out recently, the latest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean is being updated with build number JWR66V and currently being rolled on all the Google Nexus devices.

Although the array of Google Nexus devices; Nexus, Nexus 7, Nexus 10, are receiving the latest Android 4.3 update along with the Galaxy Nexus i9250, other Android users will also be eagerly waiting for their devices to get the latest Android Jelly Bean version. Other OEMs must be working on to update their devices as soon as possible but we aren't really dependent on them. Certainly the dev world would have already started working on other devices to get the Android 4.3 JB manually.

How to update your Nexus to Android 4.3 Over the Air:

Follow the instructions below to update your Google Nexus and Galaxy Nexus I9250 devices.

  • Go to Settings > About tablet > System updates > and tap on Check now.
