nexus4-updateFor all of you Google Nexus 4 owners out there, heads up – T-Mobile has rolled out an Over The Air (OTA) software update on Tuesday. This happens to be a lightweight maintenance update which comes at a size of just 1.8MB, and has been listed as software version JWR66Y. Basically, this particular update is all about security, so for those of you out there who have taken the opportunity to root your device, you would not be on the receiving end of the update, never mind that it takes up a paltry amount of storage space on your device. Despite that, T-Mobile still plays it safe, asking you to have at least half of your battery charge when you perform the download and installation process of the software update.

In its previous update, version JWR66V, it saw the delivery of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean to the handset. Should your Nexus 4 still be running on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, then you can be sure that you are at least one update behind to catch up with. Word on the street has it that other Nexus-named devices as well as Google Play Editions will also receive this very security fix. For those of you who have already installed the update, how do you find it treating you so far?
