T-Mobile outs Nexus 4 OTA, says security fixes coming today

While it isn't the bug-fix 4.3.1 update many are wanting (welcome to the world of owning a Nexus!), T-Mobile has put up an information sheet about the JWR66Y update that they say was released today (August 20th).

We've heard rumor of a small OTA for the Nexus 4 that would be coming very soon, so we're not completely surprised, but seeing confirmation from T-Mobile -- who carries the Nexus 4 in stores and online -- is always a good thing.

The update itself is said to be about 1.8MB in size, and should deliver some unknown security fixes. There is no word on the update for other devices (though I've heard all current Nexus devices should get it) or Google Play editions, but we imagine that when security is involved Google will push things as best they can.

Anyone out there seeing the update today? If so, holler out in the comments and let us know.

  • Umm... Because it's a nexus! Posted via Android Central App
  • Looking forward to this on my GPE HTC One
  • I've had JWR66V (not Y but your screenshot shows V) since 4.3 dropped a few weeks ago. I bought my Nexus 4 from Google Play as well. Is this a typo or is there an actual update and your screenshot is simply showing the old version? Also Google should be pushing this but T-Mobile just outed it, correct?
  • pretty obvious he is showing an example photo of the about screen as noone has gotten the OTA yet and he is even asking if anyone out there has received it yet.
  • He didn't read the article.... Went on commenting Posted with ... Well my Nexus⁴
  • Not here yet on my Nexus 4.
  • Nothing so far on my Nexus 4
